Another device family
Some announcement for April Fools’ Day: there oughta be another device family running phyphox… 🎮👦🧑🔬
This cannot be, can it? Sebastian has at least pushed some limits, see (technical) details at http://there.oughta.be/gta5-for-the-game-boy and references therein…
Library Update: phyphox BLE 1.1.0
The Arduino library “phyphox BLE” provides an interface for Arduino IDE projects to the phyphox app on smartphones and tablets. The new release 1.1.0 adds
- more view options in phyphox experiments,
- support of the export block,
- support for the SenseBox Bluetooth Bee,
- increasable MTU-size for ESP32.
In addition, the CO₂ monitor experiment received changes and some bugs are fixed.
Three Million Installations
Almost exactly two years after our first million, we have now reached three of them in January. One driving force apparently are tablets in educational institutions, which are finally counted for these numbers since September.
Thank you very much to all ambassadors, translators, supporters, feedback and ideas providers and the users of our app. We are looking forward to further improve phyphox and the possibilities of smartphone experiments with you.

We started hibernation. From 10 January we start catching up what we missed. Happy restful Holidays! 😊🎄🧘💤
Our Review 2021 on Twitter still continues and there is a new smartphone practical on the Doppler effect for cycling by LEIFIphysik (in German) with a corresponding YouTube video to enjoy in the meantime.
Finally, you should totally check for news here on Christmas Eve…
Version 1.1.10: First Depth Sensor Support
Version 1.1.10 has been released including new sensor rate strategies, first depth sensor support, and tons of bug fixes. Find detailed information at https://phyphox.org/wiki/index.php/Version_history#1.1.10 and https://phyphox.org/lidar.
Phyphox selected for final funding phase of “Wirkung hoch 100
The Stifterverband‘s anniversary initiative “Wirkung hoch 100” (Impact to the power of 100) is entering its third and final funding phase, and we are part of it. Ten of the more than 500 projects originally applying have been selected in a multi-stage process since the fall of 2020 in search of the best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of the future. They will now receive a total of one million euros in funding. The ten finalists will present their proposed solutions to challenges in science, education and innovation to all interested parties in November 2021, in order to make them more visible and even more effective through networking with other stakeholders. We very much look forward to the upcoming further collaboration with the other wonderful initiatives.
CO₂ Monitor Update
Some documents on our CO₂ monitor have received an update and we have added an experiment description and a corresponding video for photosynthesis. These are only available in German at the moment. If there is enough interest, we try to find some time (or volunteers) for translations.
