An innovative gadget is about to make deciding on a paint color so much easier. Described as "Shazam for colors," the Datacolor ColorReader is able to determine a paint color that closely matches any everyday object you might come across. All you have to do is hold the reader against any object, and the app will pull up the closest shade across all major paint brands.

The ColorReader is available for $99 on Amazon, and for $249, you won't even need the app because the ColorReader Pro is able to display the paint color on an embedded screen. Shop the time- and sanity-saving home gadget ahead.
