Cute, tiny Xrite Colorimeter released

Xrite has released the cute, tiny Xrite ColorMunki Display and i1 Display Pro; both are display profiling solutions that center around a very nice colorimeter  that looks like a toy searchlight:

In the above image, the ambient diffuser cover which can fit over the lens has been rotated down to act as a tabletop support for the unit, which can be aimed at a screen for projector profiling.

Fear not, the device fits very snugly even on a laptop display when hanging from its USB cord, I know because I was a beta-tester. The cord actually bears a sliding push-in adjustable counterweight aka retaining clip that hooks over the display edge, and works wonderfully on laptops. 

Depending on the version, the software for this unit has zilliions of new features, among which display uniformity testing, and building profiles that take ambient light levels and display flare into account.
