Will this be able to get pantone color codes?
nyichiban
Hi nyichiban! Although Pantone is not native to the apps, you can use the CMYK colors to convert to Pantone using Photoshop or online converters (we use the same CMYK profile as Adobe). If you intend on purchasing the Nix Pro and you own the Pantone decks, you can scan and import your own Pantone library using the custom upload feature. Let us know if you have any more questions! - Elaina Principato, Marketing Coordinator at Nix Sensor Ltd. 
WOW that’s an amazing deal on the pro!!! (the mini price is ok too but not at earth shattering) I cant decide if I can wait until the end of September to get this or just order the mini on amazon... I need it or a project now >_<
anyone with experience in both who can highlight the differences would be soooo helpful thanks
Anyone know what the warranty is on these suckers? I've read on Amazon that its only 60 days. Which seems incredibly unreasonable to me. If this is incorrect and it is more then 60, I'm totally onboard with this drop!

30 days through Massdrop

thats a shame.
I haven’t gotten it yet, so I can’t give it a favorable review.

Cool story.
Can these be used to calibrate monitors?
Knut
Hi Knut. Nix devices do not calibrate screens or monitors. They are designed to grab colors of physical surfaces like walls, fabrics, plastics, paint, paper, etc. and will match to paints or provide digital color values (RGB, CMYK, CIELAB, etc.). Feel free to reach out to our team if you have any more questions! Email: info@nixsensor.com Call Toll-Free (NA): +1.800.649.1387 Chat online: https://nixsensor.com/

Can it tell me what I need to mix to get to that color? If I scan a color I would like to mix my own paint.

I don't really see an option for that. It will give you RGBs, CMYKs, etc so maybe you can derive it from there
I work in a historical restoration firm. We needed something to take on a job site and discern a color. I got the green light to grab a Nix Pro and it has surprised all of us in the office. We've sent out paint chips for analysis and compared the results to the Nix scans. Near matches for most and some are spot on. For the price, mobility, and ease of use I don't think we could have gotten anything better.
Great ptoduct, I have one and have now bought another for a vety good interior designer I know who thinks it is the Bomb! Well-done Massdrop for bringing it, and thank you so much Nix for making this little magic gadget.
lol-lol
Thanks for your business! Any feedback is greatly appreciated!
Well it looks like I'm not the only one that thinks this product and the company behind it are NOT READY FOR PRIMETIME. Doc included in product minimal, website referenced in documentation has NO mention of this product, when you ask for a manual you are sent to a website that is not referenced in the main website or in the documentation and all it has is larger print version of the include instruction sheet. UNSAT Any company that produces a product that they don't send a complete manual with the product is obligated to provide access to a complete manual and in addition some kind of FAQ. As best I can determine the companies idea of a manual business card 5 panel "instruction" sheet - heck they don't even tell to to match your bluetooth with the product. UNSAT So at this point I have to take time out of my work day to call them to "try" and get this item to work with my phone. UNSAT

Hi msjordan,
First of all I just wanted to say thanks for your business. I'll try and help out as best as I can.
Do you have a Nix Pro Color Sensor or a Nix Mini Color Sensor?
It sounds like you have a Nix Mini Color Sensor,
The apps for the Mini can be found at https://nixmini.com/apps/
Unfortunately you are right, the FAQs are hard to find, they are at: https://nixsensor.com/nix-faq/
We are working to combine the two websites in the next few weeks to make this a lot more clear.
Thanks for the feedback! Always feel free to call us at Toll Free (NA): +1.800.649.1387
This number goes directly to our office in Canada (9-5 Eastern) where our team can walk you through any support problem you might have.
Cheers,

Mr Sheridan 2 emails to your "support" staff sent in the past 8 days, in response to a request for help a week ago - no response So much for customer support
This is such a cool product.. I couldn't hope to afford one right now but I've saved it for the future :D

This is a super good deal! Oh man Thanks folks at nixsensor, i will have to get it in the next time you guys drop by here. Maybe as a christmas gift to myself.
Thanks for voting on the drop! If you have any questions about our products please feel free to reach out here, email us at info@nixsensor.com or call our office 9-5 eastern at 905 581 6363
Sorry I'm jumping in too late, but I'd advise caution here...
I funded the Nix Kickstarter and have two of them. They've never worked. At all. The first one they sent me would never sync with any bluetooth device, so they sent me another one. That one would sometimes power on and send a color reading to the app. That color had absolutely no relation to the surface it was on. For example, putting the Nix sensor on white wall and it would tell the app that the color is purple or brown.
After repeated emails to the company for support - which went unanswered - I finally gave up.
Beware, folks...

How about you folks offer to give me my money back and pay for the time that I've wasted rather than "generously" offering to go through the same process again?
At this point, I'd settle for just getting my money back and write off the time wasted as educational.

Not all Kickstarters are successful but I do think your commentary. I was skeptical about it and never would get it. This post ensures that I won't.
This device is not made to calibrate monitors or printers, it's for interior design color matching.

Hello, I am interested in the pro version and had a question regarding its use. Must the device lay completely flat on the surface color being read? How big is the area in question? What is maximum distance the device can be used at to measure a proper reading? I am asking in regards to remodeling jobs where my customers often have objects that they wish to color match but have odd, uneven, or small dimensions such as floor/crown moldings, furniture, textured walls, etc. Thank you.
yoface
Hi! The device should lay flat on the surface for the best results. The patented Nix shape blocks out all ambient light and provides it's own calibrated light source inside. The measurement area is ~14mm diameter.
Hopefully that answers your questions! If you have any more please don't hesitate to reach out.
Cheers,
Matt Sheridan - CEO of Nix Sensor Ltd.
Can this calibrate a monitor?
This is under photography but it doesn't seem to be capable of calibrating printers or monitors as far as I can tell?

Hi Yirg,
It's Matt here from Nix. The Mini and Pro don't have native color calibration built in for printers, but you can scan a print to find it's exact color and then feed that data back into your workflow software such as Photoshop or Illustrator to tweak the values.
The Pro also has a built in Delta E 2000 calculator so you can do a QC check on any physical object's color. If you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to ask. You can post here, call our office at 905 581 6363 or email us at info@nixsensor.com Thanks!
Thanks! There are so many different uses for the Nix Mini and Pro but one simple way of thinking about it is that it's "the Photoshop Eyedropper in real life". You can "steal" colors from your surroundings and use them however you might like in the digital world.
