Not quite a tricorder, so the inventor calls it a "bicorder."
Looks like fun, I may have to make one of these.

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.

Plasmonic pixels could be used to make non-fading paint - (Phys.org)—Researchers are developing a technology that could one day make paint and color packaging labels that never fade. The color is produced by a type of nanostructure called a "plasmonic pixel." These pixels are made of aluminum nanoantennas, and when the free electrons in the metal collectively vibrate at specific frequencies, they produce a specific color.

Water = Rocket Fuel Ore
 
Water on the moon? - Prior to the Apollo missions to the moon, scientists speculated that volatiles - including water - may have accumulated in permanently shaded regions at the poles. Then the Apollo era brought the return of lunar samples, enabling real measurements: They found none of the water-bearing minerals common on Earth. Over the past ten years, however, several developments have reinvigorated the discussion. In particular, new analyses of volcanic glasses in the sample returns ha...
