Stratio have created a new handheld spectrometer called the LinkSquare which comes complete with its own SDK and provides a way to collect spectral data which you can then use to create applications, carry out research or simply sell on to others.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the LinkSquare and it’s featured when combined with the company’s in-house SDK software.
For the past two years, we’ve been hunkered down in our offices, thinking of ways to make spectroscopy more accessible. We’re happy to announce that something awesome is on the way: LinkSquare Software Development Kit (SDK). LinkSquare is a portable spectrometer, carefully designed by yours truly, and it comes with software to collect your own spectral data.
We want spectroscopy enthusiasts, developers, researchers, science-types, and tech-savvy curiosity seekers to use LinkSquare to explore anything and everything under the sun. With some know-how, you can analyze your data or create custom applications to do things like authenticate gemstones, distinguish regular and diet sodas, or match colors for home improvement projects. Join our Kickstarter community of early adopters and help us shape the future of spectroscopy!
Like all spectrometers, LinkSquare uses light to tell us more than what our eyes alone can see. It shines a bright light on objects and collects data on how they respond to different wavelengths. You can think of the data as a “spectral fingerprint” – much like human fingerprints, spectral fingerprints are unique and can be used for object identification or analysis. We can’t take any credit for discovering the principles behind spectroscopy (RIP, Isaac Newton), but we are humbled to be standing on the shoulders of giants.
