Is your food really organic? This iPhone sensor can tell you:

The sensors, which connect to your iPhone through the headphone jack, display measurements through a free app. Rather than displaying raw numbers, the app displays levels in a more comprehensible way, letting you know whether environmental levels are in a range that should raise concern. The range is adjusted depending on your particular environment, meaning that the app recognizes that the radiation levels in an airplane will be different from the levels in your home. The app also displays levels in a second, more abstract way, which shows particles accelerating in a red pool as levels climb. So if your chicken gives off a higher-than-expected measurement for nitrates, you can take steps to make your meal healthier.
