HP Labs and mobile phones: coloring people beautiful


Mobiles can do just about anything these days -- and oh! do we love it -- but fashion and color choice advice was apparently lacking. HP Lab's new software "Color Match mobile service" has come to the rescue armed with color wheels and image processing software, to save society from the perils of mismatched make-up. Users of the system simply snap a photo of themselves holding a special color chart up to their face, fire it off as an MMS to an image processing server that will clean up the pic and reply by SMS with some color choices that will suit their skin tone. Pretty handy business all around and if you are a color-challenged fella, there is hope this idea will be extended to help you pick out just the right tie for that troublesome outfit.
