A Sewing Machine with Custom CMYK-Colored Thread

The Leitfaden Sewing Machine concept by designers Monika Jakubek and Anna Müller will match your thread to any swatch of fabric.

Using what we're guessing is a similar technology to whatever the guys at the paint store use to match colors from stuff you bring in, this sewing machine can "copy" color from fabric or paper and apply it to previously-white thread using CMYK color process, just like your desktop printer.

And this concept, unlike most, doesn't give up form for functionality. It's got an open design and backlit work area, plus your stitch pattern can be projected on to the fabric that's about to be sewn.

    How expensive for the colored ink? will the colors come like ink for a printer in a all in one color OR separate cartridges? How long would it last??? Is the BIGGY. I do a LOT of embroidery.
