Thanks to Drew for sharing this project from Alex Hiam. Check out more on hackaday.io

I put this project together for the OSH Park Bring A Hack meetup at the 2016 Bay Area Maker Faire. It’s Tricorder inspired, but can’t quite sense everything, so the name “Bicorder” seemed fitting. It currently has a 3-axis magnetometer, a relative humidity / temperature sensor and an infrared range finder. It uses a 128×32 pixel monochrome LCD from Newhaven, which is divided into left and right sections, each displaying one of:

  • live plot of temperature (in Celsius)
  • live plot of relative humidity
  • live plot of magnetic field (Z-axis) in uTesla
  • a compass display (using the mag X and Y)
  • a distance readout in cm
