Camera support on Android

The new public beta of phyphox on Android includes support for smart device cameras. There is a first set of experiments that utilise it: “Brightness (Luminance)”, “Color (Hue Saturation Value)”, and two camera stopwatches for brightness and colour.

All smartphone scientists being fearless and/or keen to experiment: try it, break it, and report back what you notice in our forums or by mail.

Aachen phyphox summer training

On September 8, our Aachen phyphox summer training (in German) will be held again, where the whole phyphox team will present experiments and features around phyphox with talks and workshops. We have some new stuff in the program like a blockly-based experiment editor and more about (our own) wireless sensors.

This year we will return to the lecture hall center “C.A.R.L.” in central Aachen directly at the train station “Aachen West”. Participation is free of charge and possible for half or full day.
