I SciSpy with my little iPhone eye
Everyday we have the opportunity to make scientific observations, but without the time, tools or training ... well, it's just never going happen. But now, using the Science Channel's SciSpy mobile app, anyone who wants to can help advance scientific research: specifically, the study of the natural world.
As long as you have the SciSpy app on your iPhone, all you have to do is capture and submit photos of living things: a unique bug on your kitchen floor (a new species perhaps?), or an unusual-looking mushroom you find sprouting in your backyard.
When your photo is submitted, it's automatically date stamped, geo-mapped, classified, and entered into an online database, available on ScienceChannel.com, where scientists around the world can analyze it and use it for their own research.
