  1. I know! I saw it a while ago and I thought it was just incredible! The fun fact is that some classmates where designing the same exact thing and they didn't know about its existance. We talked a lot about it and there were actually some issues: eg. that apple has actually hundreds, or millions of colors, what color would it pic? Then, the surface (matt or gloss) can change the appearance of the color...what if the color is in the sun or in the shade? Well...these were just some issues that probably normal people wouldn't even think about...but it's true! I mean, think about a beautiful match of color of a leaf of a bench or a scarf on a woodden table, then you decide to get those colors and when you use them together they don't look beautiful anymore: that would be so sad!
    But other than these nerdy observations it's an amazing product|
