Are you a researcher, hacker, maker, plant enthusiast, professor, gardener, farmer, citizen scientist, grad student who wants to create and take part in global experiments on plants and algae?
Consider applying to be a Photosynq Beta Tester!
Photosynq is a platform for measuring information about photosynthesis. Using an open source Arduino-compatible device and a cell phone, collaborators can take measurements of plants and algae and view and share their data in real time. Any user can create an experiment, or take part in someone else’s experiment – which means experiments can be local or global in scale.
If you’d like more information, check out the links in the right sidebar of this page! –>
We’re looking for folks who will actively use the device, give feedback for improvement, identify interesting research opportunities which use the device, and help us work through bugs as they come up. We’ll choose about 30 – 50 beta testers total. We hope to begin the beta test by January 2014 (though sooner if we can manage!).
(PS – if you were one of the first 5 people to apply (between Sept. 4th – Sept. 9th) we didn’t get your email – sorry, our mistake! Please email Greg at gbathree at msu (dot) edu so we have some way to contact you if you’re accepted for the Beta)
