COLOR REPRODUCTION AND USE THAT'S SO EASY IT'S ALMOST LIKE MAGIC

With the Scribble scanning and capturing any color is easy and fast. Simple hold the Scribble’s scanner up to any color, like on a wall, a fruit, a book or magazine, a painting or even a child’s toy and within a second or two that color is stored in Scribble’s internal memory.

Once stored, that color can then be used to draw on paper (with the Scribble INK)

or to draw on a digital screen (with the Scribble STYLUS) instantly.

WHO CAN USE THE SCRIBBLE PEN?

The Scribble is intended for anyone who needs access to a wide range of colors as well as the facility to easily and quickly reproduce any color.. Children will love the Scribble because it can create a myriad of different colors, completely replacing even their biggest box of crayons or marking pens. It will also let them instantly scan and draw with any color they see on any object around them.

Artists, graphic designers, interior decorators, fashion designers, or anyone working with color in their professional lives, will be able to scan color from any product, surface or chart, and instantly reproduce the identical color, to be used either on paper or on an electronic device of their choice.

Our nib set offers you a fantastic range of stroke weights. Choose from fine to heavy depending on your mood! We offer 6 tip sizes, 0.3mm, 0.5mm, 1.0mm, 1.5mm, 2.5mm and 3.71mm

Those with color vision problems, homeowners and professional painters will find Scribble to be an amazing tool that makes their lives much easier with its color scanning ability. Any color can be scanned and reproduced, making color-matching a breeze and home / business painting much simpler.

Both the Scribble Stylus and Ink can hold thousands of different colors and reproduce them exactly. The Scribble will literally replace a box full of crayons or marking pens and make color reproduction fast and simple for any project and application.

The Scribble Pen and Stylus pairs with a mobile app to instantly sync every color you scan directly onto your iPhone, iPad or Android mobile device. Your colors become more useful when they are organized, tagged, searchable and converted to various color models.

SCRIBBLE IS THE BEST COLOR – GREEN

One of the most outstanding features of the Scribble is that, since it can reproduce any color, it replaces thousands of marking pens, thereby greatly reducing the huge amount of plastic waste cluttering up our landfills all over the world.

HOW DID WE CREATE THE SCRIBBLE?

We've been in the design process for two years and the Scribble has gone through various design changes to get it to where we are now, a working prototype that’s ready for use in home and business applications. Because of its small size we have created a number of innovations never seen before in the color reproduction industry. We are also always looking for feedback and opinions from our supporters and want to create a community of supporters as part of this Kickstarter project. We created Scribble for YOU and want you to be a part of the process!

WHAT ARE REWARDS?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Thank you so much for taking the time to check out our Kickstarter Campaign and discover the Scribble. Thank you also for your generous support! Make sure to bookmark our Kickstarter page and check back often to see the progress of the campaign as well as the updated times for manufacturing and delivery of your Scribble.

Risks and challenges

As with any ground-breaking and innovative project, risks and challenges are a major factor. At this stage, we have identified our primary real significant risk to be the injection moulding process. This process involves the largest outlay of capital expenditure. We want to get the best quality finish for the Scribble Pen and as such, our team has put a considerable amount of time into sourcing our injection moulded parts and working with the relevant suppliers.

Our R&D team consists of many multi-talented individuals with vast experience in the fields of engineering, color science and industrial design. To get to where we are today, we have overcome many challenges and have made great progress in identifying and assessing the risks which are part of this highly complex project.

The greatest challenge we now face, is taking this project from a working prototype into mass production. Our design is highly complex and innovative and we require unique production technology.

Many Kickstarter campaigns encounter difficulties at this crucial stage of taking the prototype into production. The challenge involves finding the correct suppliers and engineering products and ensuring that the production process will be smooth and risk free. We have been working for many months on this, negotiating with suppliers, testing component quality, and building up a strong team that will be able to deliver on our promises.

From the start of our campaign through to the delivery, we intend to keep you fully updated on all the stages of our progress. We will keep you fully informed regarding details of unexpected issues or delays, if any, and we promise to be fully transparent on all aspects of the project at all times.
