Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 20 January 2014 at 09:15 AM EST. 7 Comments
The ColorHug has been one of the more successful OpenHardware projects of recent times. The ColorHug is an open-source display colorimeter for calibrating LCD panels for accurate displays. This open-source hardware was designed by GNOME's Richard Hughes and obviously features first-rate linux support. He's now working on a new ColorHug+ device.

The ColorHug+ was announced today by Richard Hughes' company, Hughski Limited. This device for calibrating displays and printers is an upgrade over the original device but isn't shipping quite yet: there's only one prototype of the ColorHug+ right now and it's estimated the first production batch is up to nine months out.

The ColorHug+ will feature a 5nm optical resolution, 2nm electrical resolution, will be supported by colord and libcolorhug on Linux, and other features. Those wanting more information on the ColorHug+ (or the original ColorHug) can visit Hughski.com.
