How Green Is Your Grass

We HEART the grass scanner idea from the RCA Design Interactions show - it is AWESOME. Every summer an unofficial 'How Green Is Your Lawn' competition takes place across the UK with particular attention being paid to the front lawn as this requires no excuse or small talk preperation to peer over the garden fence.

Cue the genius idea that is the Grass Scanner - a device designed by Alice Wang to measure how green your grass is.
Using 3 Pantone Color Cue devices, it takes reading from 3 random patches of the grass and outputs a Pantone colour code for one to compare. With the codes, one can refer to the PARKTONE cards which contains average grass colours of Royal Parks and other green areas in the UK for people to match up with their own garden. As grass condition in different areas of a given park may vary, each area was measured several times before an average of the data was used to create the PARKTONE card.
