What surfaces can and can't be captured by Cube?

Cube can capture colors from most surfaces. Some of them include:

  • Plastic
  • Wood
  • Paper (matte and glossy)
  • Cardboard
  • Concrete and plaster (textured concrete is generally OK)
  • Painted surfaces (matte and glossy)
  • Fabric (except loosely woven fabrics, such as wool)
  • Powders (such as ground coffee)
  • Natural items (such as leaves, bark and even skin!)

Cube uses an electronic light source and detector to read color, but some surfaces can't be captured very well. As a guide, these surfaces can be difficult to capture accurately:

  • Transparent objects (such as glass or clear plastic)
  • Liquids
  • Loose fabric (such as wool)
  • Metallic surfaces (such as car paint or jewellery)
  • Fluorescent surfaces (such as sticky notes)
