Sense. Compute. Record.
COMING SUMMER 2017!
As featured in the hit Star Trek (tm) series, our real-life Mark 5 Tricorder is packed full of high-tech sensors to aid you in exploring inhospitable planets, detecting alien life-forms, and undertaking your latest scientific endeavors.
The Mark 5 Tricorder is designed specifically for activities related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), although it can also be utilized in virtually any situation - the only limit is your imagination!
The name Tricorder is a contraction of "triple-function recorder", in reference to the device's three primary functions: sense, compute, and record. Please see Wikipedia for more information.
Our Tricorder is the product of years of research and development by Dr. Peter Jansen of the University of Arizona, with customized updates made by the Auto-Parallel Technologies development team. A history of the Tricorder development process may be found on the old Tricorder Project website, as well as Dr. Jansen's website.
Dr. Jansen has passed the torch of Tricorder development to APTech, and we are carrying the project forward with his personal blessing and moral support.
