Default Star Trek Tricorder released (Scientific Sci-Fi Scanner)

Hi all - I just released a sci-fi scanner app today. Let me know what you think and how I can make it better! I've been releasing biweekly updates with fixes and new features.


Scientific Sci-Fi Scanner

A REAL interactive scanner that displays information from your phone's sensors with an sci-fi visual style. Modeled after the TR-580 tricorder from TNG / DS9, this scanner has 9 modules: Solar, Geo, Weather, Audio, Gyro, Mag, GPS, Cam, and Device, three of which are free. Full HD graphics!

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.

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

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

Displays a spectrum readout of the microphone's audio, as well as current dB levels and Hz frequency.

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

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.

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.

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

Turns the scanner screen into a live camera feed. Also displays raw RGB levels of your phone's camera.
