FaMe color recognition device
A FaMe color recognition device should not be missing: You hold it on the object and trigger the color measurement simply with a button. The FaMe then tells you the exact color, including how strong and how light it is. The three-color sensor from FaMe enables a very fine color resolution and can recognize many thousands of colors.
