Snapzoom: The Universal Smartphone Scope Adapter by HI Resolution Enterprises — Kickstarter - Iceweasel (Build 20120314104625)

We live and work in Honolulu, and our inspiration for Snapzoom was born of our passion for surfing and photography. About a year ago we started using binoculars as a telephoto lens for our smartphones. We were amazed with the quality of the photos and videos, but connecting our phones with the scopes was pretty frustrating. We set out to find a simple solution and came up with Snapzoom the universal smartphone scope adapter.

What does Snapzoom do? Snapzoom connects and aligns a smartphone camera with the eyepiece of an optical scope. What makes Snapzoom so awesome? OUYA. Better than knives.

Any artist or designer who works with color knows that the best inspiration and perfect coloration can often be found in real-life objects all around us.

Creative Scan-and-Draw Color-Changing Pen Design

What if you could take your trusty drawing pen and simply scan any color you want and then turn around and draw with it? This innovative pen design by Jin Sun Park allows you to do just that. Next step? A complete texture selector and replicator? A color sensor on the top of the pen registers the color of the object you select, which in turn is displayed digitally on the back of the device for verification.

Of course, such an invention has its limitations: space for ink and batteries are challenges to be sure, but presumably you would only use this periodically and would also transfer the color data in some cases directly to another electronic advice, thus saving ink.

One of my favorites was the Apple IIgs, and when someone requested I build a portable version of it I jumped at the chance. A custom-built Apple IIgs laptop. Click for larger version, suitable for framing. Some quick specs: Large 15″ color screen.
