What do you think about tricorders in your pocket? Here’s Lapka that has launched an easy way of monitoring your personal environment as you go about your everyday life, such as a new set of sensors specially designed for Apple’s iOS device that have been called it Lapka’s iPhone sensors. Details after the jump!
Lapka has developed a prototype of a sensor that measures how your organic food is, especially useful when you’re sick and tired of food manufacturers and vendors mislabeling their food products “organic” in an attempt to cash it on the latest health food trends. Organic means natural without any chemicals that can keep your body protected from other attacks. Lots more to say about organic food, below are some casual details about it.
Lapka has designed to calculate the amount of nitrates in raw foods and drinking water caused by residues of synthetic fertilizers. Whereas nitrate is a common chemical found in fertilizers that are used in non-organic farms, for that the Lapka’s sensor can also be used to detect humidity, temperature and radiation in the air & electromagnetic feedback, and then displays the results in a handy companion app. This can also be shared with your neighbors and friends:
