A real interactive multi-sensor and data visualization scanner with a sci-fi look and feel. This scanner has 9 modules: Solar, Geo, Weather, Audio, Gyro, Mag, GPS, Cam, and Device. 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 surface 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.
AUDIO MODULE (requires low-latency hardware, experimental)
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 and has a working compass.
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).
CAM MODULE (experimental)
Turns the scanner screen into a live movie feed. Also displays raw RGB levels of your phone's camera.
Adds screen FX to simulate a CRT monitor. The noise and chromatic aberration effect tax the GPU, so "high Q" may not work on all phones.
Toggle computer beeps and scan hums.
RECOMMENDED TECH SPECS
-Low-latency audio pipeline (for Audio Module only). This allows for live analysis of microphone data.
-Screen resolution larger than 480x800, 300+ ppi.
-If you experience crashes outside of the Audio module, quit other open applications (in Android's Settings menu) and try again, as this is typically due to an out-of-memory error. The app will also continue to be optimized over time to accommodate older phones.

Tags: scifi simulations.
-Camera and Audio correctly added.
-Known issue: viewscreen is a bit off-center on some devices. The "Lite" version should work correctly until this is fixed for this version.
