Sick of the stacks of paint chips and countless shades of beige? A new Google Glass app can help.
Powered by paint retailer Sherwin-Williams, ColorSnap Glass lets users turn photos of design inspiration — a favorite piece of art, a scene from your backyard — into a custom palette.

First, a Glass user snaps a picture of their inspiration, which is sent to Sherwin-Williams’ server. The photo’s primary colors are translated into a set of paint colors, so a snapshot of flowers in a garden is reduced to a palette of pinks and reds; a specific shade of green is extracted from a photo of your mint ice cream.
Users can share photos and colors with friends and find Sherwin-Williams stores through the app, too.
ColorSnap Studio, a version optimized for the iPad, lets you change the color of your walls in photographs of your home — a virtual experimentation of colors before committing.
ColorSnap Glass was developed by Resource, an independent marketing agency, as part of Google’s Glass Explorer program, according to a press release. ColorSnap Glass is still in beta,download it now.
