Scientific Sci-fi Scanner Lite

Scientific Sci-fi Scanner Lite


Please send bugs to the support email with device type so it can be fixed! There are over 2200 Android devices, so it takes time to support them all. Thank you for your patience!

A REAL interactive multi-sensor and data visualization scanner with a sci-fi look and feel. This scanner has 9 modules: Solar, Geo, Weather, Audio, Gyro, Mag, GPS, Cam, and Device, three of which are free. Full HD graphics!

SOLAR MODULE
Graphs the last 96 hours of solar wind plasma readings from the US ACE satellite and displays the most recent Solar X-ray. Measured parameters are Proton Density, Bulk Speed, and Ion Temperature.

GEO MODULE
Displays animated global satellite data from NASA on a 3D globe. Last 10 months of land surface temp, sea surface temp, vegetation index, and chlorophyll concentration.

WEATHER MODULE
Displays current meteorological conditions from closest weather station. Temperature, wind speed and direction, pressure, humidity, precipitation.

AUDIO MODULE (requires low-latency hardware, experimental)
Displays a spectrum readout of the microphone's audio, as well as current dB levels and Hz frequency. Some Android phones lag or crash on this feature (those without low-latency audio or with lots of background services running).

MAG MODULE
Displays device-relative magnetometer readings. Comes with a spheroid visualization and raw microtesla vector and total field data.

GPS MODULE (free)
Displays WGS84-corrected coordinates on a 3D globe based on NASA satellite images. Zooms and rotates. Also displays readout of latitude, longitude, and altitude values and has a working compass.

GYRO MODULE (free)
Displays device attitude in real world space (3-axis bubble level). Includes gyro sphere pointing to world up and numerical data for world up vector.

DEVICE MODULE (free)
Displays device data (unique ID, system memory, graphics memory, graphics API, OS, processor name, number of cores, device name).

CAM MODULE (experimental)
Turns the scanner screen into a live movie feed. Also displays raw RGB levels of your phone's camera.

QUALITY BUTTON
Adds screen FX to simulate a CRT monitor. The noise and chromatic aberration effect tax the GPU, so "high Q" may not work on all phones.

SND BUTTON
Toggle computer beeps and scan hums.

RECOMMENDED TECH SPECS
-Low-latency audio pipeline (for Audio Module only). This allows for live analysis of microphone data.
-Screen resolution larger than 480x800, 300+ ppi.
-If you experience crashes outside of the Audio module, quit other open applications (in Android's Settings menu) and try again, as this is typically due to an out-of-memory error. The app will also continue to be optimized over time to accommodate older phones.

Can be beter It is very cool and looks good but it has very little features on it some of it does nothing wean tapped and sound is very low and is not making all the regular tricorder sounds and its missing all the flashing leds and blinking lights. I wish to point the devs to a video of a guy on you tube that builds costume tricorders that have way more functions and features than this app. Devs please look and apply some of that ideas from that video. This app is ok but it can be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
