Become a Vulcan in real life with the Tricorder for Android: a true working geological, meteorological, and biological scanner!
In case you're not "in" with the Trekkie crowd, a Tricorder is multifunction handheld device used for sensor scanning, data analysis, and recording data. There are a ton of other different versions of Tricorder, specific to class like medical and engineering, but this one's just your good old fashioned run of the mill geological, meteorological, and biological scanner.
Once you launch the app, your main controls are laid out on the left side and include the Êgravitational field, magnetic field, acoustic environment, geographic information, electromagnetic spectrum scanner, and solar information.
Had enough nerd thrown on you yet? No? Good, because with highly customizable notifications and settings, this app goes even further down the spiral into Trekkie territory!

Lots of useless information
Some useful information
Detailed manual included (you need it!)
Only as cool and useful as your device's hardware
Interface and display looks dated (but kinda cool)
For a ton of (mostly) useless information, and a downright nerdier view of the world around you, of course you have to download the Tricorder! There are also versions available for iPhone and iPad, so Apple folks - you can become Vulcans IRL, too.
