Spectro is a ring under your command. The device is an accessory with the ability to capture your favorite colors from the real world.
My professor assigned a project for PBDS 662, Design for Digital Environments about developing a technology for a specific community. As a designer, I like to get involved in the design community. Therefore, I wanted to think about what kind of technology would improve a designer's capabilities. At the time, I was thinking about color and how it is ubiquitous. I wanted to create a product that would bridge between designers and the beautiful colors of the world.
I have started my research to search for similar products, services, or applications that focus on color. Scribble is a pen that can register any color in the device and use the colors instantly on paper, canvas, or a computer. Adobe Capture is an application for mobile devices to create your own shapes, colors, fonts, patterns, and brushes. Then, I had to brainstorm an approach that would refrain the user to take out his/her phone. Suddenly, I had thought about a ring accessory with the power to scan and capture colors in the real world.
