Our core technology actually started as a curiosity exercise a few years ago at the MIT Media Lab. We challenged ourselves to create a scientific grade spectral sensor that works with a smartphone. Our first version was a prototype that connected to a smartphone via the audio jack and we were able to 'record' an optical signal as a 'sound' like signal. That was a breakthrough! Through several iterations and many messy prototypes, we are finally ready to create a neat, portable and most importantly, accurate device that works with a smartphone. We are all about pocket science. We believe everyone should have access to the best technology.
