Lapka detects organic food, measures radiation and EMF levels
A product soon to be on the market claims to take the guesswork out of whether organic produce is truly “organic”.
Lapka, which is own by a European technology firm and is in its final production stage, is a “personal environment monitor” that, when hooked up to an Apple iPhone, can help determine a number of things, including how “organic” food really is. The device works by measuring the number of nitrates in raw foods and water through a stainless steel probe. A high level of nitrates signals residues left by synthetic fertilizers.
Measuring nitrates in organic food isn’t the only thing Lapka is capable of. The device also detects radiation and electromagnetic frequency levels, as well as temperature and humidity. Lapka will reportedly sell for around $220 when it is released.
