Ever wonder if that zucchini at the farmers market is really organic? What about if your cell phone is emitting radiation? Well now, there’s an app for that.

Lapka has created a free app and accompanying “personal environment monitor” attachment for your iPhone to measure nitrate concentration in food. The chemical is used in non-organic fertilizers, so any residue left behind is a sure sign of a fraudulent label.  The device will also come with attachments to detect radiation, electromagnetism, and humidity and should be available for sale to the public by the end of the year. (Finally – an app to officially monitor the impact of humidity on your hair!) The sleek and modern Lapka hardware sports a plastic cover made from recycled materials. At $220, it’s not cheap but the more inquisitive among us may find themselves with a favorite new toy.

Users will be able to take “snapshots” of the readings and share that information like they might with regular photographs. There are  plenty of uses for this new invention for the professional scientific community as well for the curious amateurs. How people might use this information remains to be seen, but it may come in handy when choosing a hospital, restaurant, home, or just a place for your yoga mat.
