Pantone Color Cue 2.1

Pantone Color Cue 2.1Pantone’s updated Color Cue 2.1 is a mouse-sized portable color sampling device that can match colors on real-world objects to their Pantone equivalents. Take it on-site to measure the color of tablecloths, wallpaper, menus, or carpets — without a computer.

The new model includes seven Pantone color libraries (such as PMS, Goe coated, and Goe uncoated) for 11,000 possible color matches, an LCD screen with several configurable displays, and stores the most recent 30 color samples for later viewing. It can also translate colors among RGB, HTML and Lab color spaces. Color Cue costs $299 until Jan. 1, then $349.
