XPNDBLS and SiWare collaborated to develop a handheld optical spectroscopy scanner around Apple smartphone devices. NeoSpectra’s unique features bring a new perspective to optical spectroscopy. The sensors are constructed from low cost, robust, permanently aligned, and highly reproducible components. The core technology is based on semiconductor fabrication techniques promising unprecedented economies of scale.
What is Neospectra?
Have you ever watched Star Trek and wondered whether you can ever live to see a real life Tricoder?
In January at Photonics West 2017, XPNDBLS and Si-Ware announced NeoSpectra Phone case bringing the dream of realizing a Tricoder a step closer to realization on mass scale levels.
State of the art technology optimized for mass usage opening limitless possibilities for consumer and industrial use. Now with a single click on a phone APP, the user can recognize and analyze fine details about material being scanned. Food quality and ingredients analysis never before possible has been realized and successfully demonstrated. Please see link below for vide and demonstration.
Miniturizing large scale lab equipment into a handheld formfactor was the fruit of technology and art placed together in an innovative melting pot allowing us to realize the orignal dream of Wah Ming Chan, the original visionary behind the iconic design of the Tricoder gadget in the Star Trek series.
Ergonomic body design optimized for daily operation of the NIRS NeoSpectra Scanner.
With built-in battery and a universal communication channel to the iPhone, NeoSpectra case
BTW, A tricoder is a multifunctional handheld device, equipped with sensor and data analysis for scanning and recognizing surrounding environments. It was featured in the science-fictional Star Trek universe.
