If curiosity never leaves your head and you are always looking to learn about new things, and are fascinated by technology, not to mention the fact that you are at a constant awe of how much we have advanced form being Neanderthals to controlling everything, even our money, through a few touches on an illuminating screen, this is your lucky day. This is your lucky day because we are going to be covering an app that deals with the sensors on our android devices and how they function. So let us give a very warm welcome to Sensor Box for Android (I am very excited!).
Sensor Box for Android detects all available sensors on your Android device, and vividly shows you how they work with amazing graphics. Sensor Box for Android also tells you which sensors are supported by the hardware, and provides extremely useful sensor tools that could be used in our daily life.
Now is that cool or what! Whether you have or not given the sensors a thought before reading about this app, it does not matter once you get to know about Sensor Box for Android. This is that app that one does not really require but it is always good to be well informed. This app plays with the curiosity of people’s minds because it gives you information that no other app can provide.
Now, I am sure you are wondering about the various kinds of sensors, so here it is:
– Gyroscope Sensor
Gyroscope sensor can measure six directions at a time. You will be able to see the effects immediately by rotating your phone slightly. Now Gyroscope sensor is mostly used in 3D game development, and possibly indoor navigation in future.
– Light Sensor
Light sensor is applied to detect the light intensity of the environment, and then adjusts screen brightness and determines whether to turn off the keyboard light. Test the effect by putting your phone in dark place and retrieving it.
– Orientation Sensor
Orientation sensor is applied to detect direction status of the device, i.e. auto rotate screen when device is rotated horizontally. It can also be used as measure equipment like Spirit Level.
– Proximity Sensor
Proximity sensor measures the distance between two objects, usually the device screen and our hands/face etc. Test the effect by moving your hand forward and backward in front of the device in Sensor Box for Android.
– Temperature Sensor
Temperature sensor provides information about your device temperature, thus you can take action when the temp is too low or high.
– Accelerometer Sensor
Accelerometer sensor is applied to detect device directions, i.e. auto rotate screen when the device is rotated vertically. It is also widely used in game development.
Sound detects the sound intensity around you and provides you detailed information about the intensity changes.
– Magnetic Field
Magnetic Field is used in many areas like metal detection and compass, which bring us lot convenience in our life.
Pressure is used to detect environmental pressure, thus to forecast weather and temperature.
This is a very refreshing app that gives vital knowledge about how things function. It is a must to download as everything you get to know through Sensor Box for Android will definitely leave you awe struck!
