Known as Scribble, the new technology lets you draw any colour in the world almost instantly.

The pen uses a 16-bit RGB colour sensor and scans real life items before creating a colour-matched ink, The Huffington Post reports.

For example, you could scan a blade of grass (or an orange, as above) and the Scribble will create the exact colour for you and transfer it either onto paper or a mobile device.

The ink cartridge is refillable and the wireless pen has a rechargeable battery, and for only US$150 it has the potential to revolutionise the art and design world.
