MIMO & Spector

Designer Fiona O'Leary makes technology to improve our lives. Two of her latest products are aimed at designers and addresses two problems. The MIMO provides a new interface for Copy and Paste, allowing you to copy four items to your clipboard. With a simple interface, both physical and virtual. With effective colour coding and visually seeing what you've copied the MIMO would be really handy to a designers workflow.

The Spector can detect the typeface, font size on a printed page. The camera can also detect colour to a specific CYMK, RGB or Pantone reference. Spector makes printed pages interactive and bridges the divide between screen and print.
