Lapka is a personal environmental monitor that connects to your phone informing you of the unseen qualities of your surroundings. Lapka includes four independent sensors which feed information to an iPhone app. They can detect invisible particles, ions, molecules and wavelengths in the air. This data is then fed to the app displaying analysis on radiation levels, electromagnetic fields, humidity and even the organic levels of your food – through analysing nitrate and pesticide levels.
