Lapka Electronics‘ sensors measure everything from your home’s radiation levels to how organic your organic food is. The sensors are plugged into your iPhone via the headphone jack and you can read the measurements directly on the screen using the bundled iOS app. The other included sensors are an electromagnetic field detector and humidity sensor. Lapka plans on adding allergen sensors and fitness trackers once their product is released.
