The circuit will detect the color of the object that it's pointed at and send wirelessly to a computer or mobile device the HTML hex code for the color. The device will display the hex code and example of the color. The idea is to allow web page designers to have a real life "water dropper" that they can point at real objects, or maybe give people the ability to record a color off an object and take it to a paint store to get a matching color.
The code will be written in either Java or AVR8 assembly using Java Grinder (http://www.mikekohn.net/micro/java_grinder.php).
