The new iPhone sensors by Lapka measure your personal environment through its set of four peripherals. The accessory collects analog measures of humidity/temperature, organicity (whether or not a food is really organic), radiation, and electromagnetic frequencies, and then tells the user whether the levels are acceptable or not.
Probably the most intriguing piece is the organicity sensor. It works by looking for significant quantities of nitrates in raw foods and drinking water in order to detect residues of synthetic fertilizers, allowing you to test if your food is truly organic. Simply plug in the sensors to your phone’s headphone jack and read the measurements right on your screen.
The design of each sensor and how they all fit together is quite beautiful – Each one is made of wood and ivory-like plastic and has its own unique design (so you can easily tell them apart!). As of now the product is still in prototype stages but it is planned to be released in December for $220. Via FastCoDesign, gBlog
