Announcing a Second Crowdfunding Campaign for Nix Sensor, a Portable Color Detection Device

Supporters of the Indiegogo campaign will experience color accuracy with the new smartphone accessory at a discounted price.

HAMILTON, Ontario, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- After a strikingly successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that enabled the first shipment of the award winning color sensor, Nix Sensor announces a second crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo. The new project ends on April 20, 2014, and will allow the company to manufacture a second batch of the Nix Sensor. The product is available at a discounted price through the campaign.

All funds raised through the Nix Sensor campaign will pay for the manufacturing of the device. The company expects a fast turnaround since they have already fulfilled an order once before. Backers can expect their new color-matching device delivered to them in May of this year.

Early bird supporters of the Indiegogo project will receive 50% off the retail price of the device. Only 100 slots are available for the early bird special. Other supporters receive the color sensor at 30% off.

The patent pending color sensor is compatible with iPhone, Android, PC, and Mac. It stores accurate color properties, which can be matched to real life color pigments. Colors of images or objects can be scanned and saved on the device with a swatch name and description. The swatch can then be viewed in any color model including RGB, CMYK, HSL, HSV, XYZ, HTML, and Lab. Next, the swatch can be converted to multiple mediums including wall paint, oil paint, makeup, watercolor, hobby paints, wood stain, automotive paint and more. Even crayon color can be selected for serious coloring book artists. Then, the user can select a particular brand of that medium. For instance, various brands of wall paint can be selected such as Behr, Sherwin-Williams, Ralph Lauren, etc. Once the color, medium type, and brand are selected, the user can search for a nearby store that sells the color product.

Nix Sensor is a perfect small device for interior designers, fine artists, makeup artists, architects, and anyone who deals with creating color services. The useful tool can replace bulky paint deck systems of various paint manufacturers, therefore saving money and space.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?
