A hand held device that detects and announces colour of a surface it is pointed to. When switched on it beeps until placed on surface with no light infiltrating the sensor. The device then announces basic colour and shade, for example, "very light blue". The device is useful for people who cannot identify colours due to a vision impairment or colour blindness.
