Lapka

20 Feb

“I’m waking up to ash and dust. I wipe my brow but I swear my rust. I’m breathing in the chemicals.”

I hope your environment isn’t as bad as the lyrics from this Imagine Dragons song, but you don’t know for sure, do you? Wouldn’t you feel much better if you’d really know what’s going on in your environment? Lapka Personal Environment Monitor is a device to help you find out!

What is it?

Lapka is a small, personal environment tool, which works with your iPhone. The monitor measures, analyzes and collects information about your environment. It gives you all the information about the things that we normally don’t think about, like electromagnetic fields, temperature, humidity and radiation, but it also measures the organicity of food. To measure all these things, Lapka uses sensors. You can easily download the Lapka app on your smartphone.

Why is it cool?

I think the Lapka app is really cool, because it’s a good example of Transparency. It shows you all the things you normally can’t see in the environment around you. You are living in it every day, without knowing what’s really going on out there. Because you can find out with Lapka, I think people become more environment-friendly and more aware about the environment they live in. The more people will know, the more they can do to approve their environment, which will also approve their Quality of Life.

Why does it have future growth potential?

The app has, in my opinion, definitely future growth potential. I think the most important reason therefor, is the awareness people get by using this app. If they can see all the bad things within their environment, they might make some changes in their ways of life. They will get more environmentally friendly, which will be much better for their further lives. The designer of the app could develop the app, so there will be even more transparency and people will going to live even more environment-friendly!
