I-laps Transform your Smartphone into a Datalogger

Thought this might interest someone, you could use an old phone as a data logger with some wireless sensors. Phone sits inside a head unit to protect it from the elements.

Disclaimer: I have no connection to this, it just popped up in my social media feed.

Nice! I saw this a couple of weeks ago too. With more and more people having spare phones lying about (I think I have 3 unused iPhones at this point) this might be an area for growth. One thing for sure is you can iterate on the software much faster than you can with a device that takes firmware updates…

Maybe I’ll do my first KP review… With all my spare time?

/edit
Signed up for the testing program. If they can deliver on the promises on their website, this could be a fun and interesting tool.

This looks pretty trick. I signed up, we will see what it is like!

So here’s the latest on it. It’s an indigogo crowdfund campaign which makes me a little nervous with
hardware products, let alone one ambitious enough to be a software/platform one too.

@Eric_Gunderson and I spoke with Stefano Brozzoni in email to get some more detail, and it looks like they expect to be able to assemble the PCB and plastic parts in about seven weeks from now.

Did you sign up for the trial?

They will have to do something that really shows (in a real, practical sense) what differentiates it from the others on the market. Case study or similar.
