But there are still some things that we need to capture. This crazy gadget can detect fonts and colors.

There are several font detectors available in software form, but this is the first physical gadget to detect fonts and colors. The Spector can identify seven different font families and can also detect size using an algorithm. The device capture an image of the font and then those images are processed via an algorithm which identifies the font by checking its shape and matching it with the fonts database. The prototype can also recognize colors from different sources which are shown in the video below. It can detect colors and can break them into CMYK or RGB format. Spector is not available for sale but having a dream of expecting it soon in the market is not bad.
