Lapka has created a personal environmental monitor via a sleek iPhone accessory and app that claims to be able to test for radiation, electromagnetic fields, humidity, and organicity by way of four separate plug-ins. The product should debut in late 2012 and according to the maker, the device "is designed to look for significant quantities of nitrates in raw foods and drinking water caused by residues of synthetic fertilizers." Notice the word raw: This won't be able to tell you whether those Newman-O's live up to their label.
