Really, who DOESN’T want a tricorder?

Someone’s made a working prototype.

Peter Jansen, the engineer responsible for the tricorder has even given you helpful instructions on how to make your own! He’s like it to be as accessible as possible to lay people and children:

“I’m also actively designing the next model, and keeping it inexpensive in the hopes that children and ‘big kids’ like me will have easy access to them sometime in the near future,” he says.

His tricorders are “portable sensor systems that can measure atmospheric measurements (ambient temperature, pressure and humidity), electromagnetic measurements (light or magnetic fields), and spatial measurements (distance and location). ”

I totally would have made this (maybe with Dad or Sister’s help…) as a kid. Awesome way to learn about a bunch of different branches of science!
