Submitted by PocketLab on Thu, 10/05/2017 - 16:23

There are three types of PocketLabs that work across different platforms. PocketLab Voyager, PocketLab Weather, and PocketLab One (our original PocketLab). We are working very hard on app updates to make compatibility and functionality as uniform as possible across all platforms.

Here is the status of our two apps, each platform:

PocketLab Frequently Asked Questions

Submitted by PocketLab on Tue, 09/19/2017 - 21:57

What’s the difference between PocketLab One, PocketLab Voyager, and PocketLab Weather?

All PocketLabs are wireless multi-sensors for science exploration that can connect to the free PocketLab app to stream and record data from the numerous sensors packed into each device. See compatibility requirements for the PocketLab app here.

The PocketLab web app is available on Chromebook and Mac OSX (click here for instructions on how to see if your Mac is compatible). Use the web app if you want to connect to PocketLab Voyager, PocketLab Weather or PocketLab One on these devices. You can also connect to the web app on an Android tablet or phone using Android 5.0 or later. Android also has a native app that you can download from the Google Play Store. 

Plot calculated data on the pocketLab app or how to build an app for that

Submitted by Henricus on Fri, 11/17/2017 - 22:55

I'm loving my pocket lab and can see a lot of really useful applications in the field I work on, biomechanics.

I just wish I could calculate some data with the app or find some guide on how to be able to do it myself.

For example I'ld like to calculate an angle at a certain axis real-time. Would also be amazing to calculate power output and height of a jump.

Would really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction


Retrieving Data

Submitted by digthefalls on Tue, 11/14/2017 - 12:06

I have completed my first data collection project. One sensor did not make it through the test sequence...

The second sensor will connect to my Android App, but I cannot retrieve the data via Chrome App. I have tried two different laptops...
Both laptops show "bluetooth adapter unavailable", although the sensor does show in connectable devices in the Bluetooth connection window.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Calibration of temperature sensor

Submitted by Gams on Sat, 09/30/2017 - 10:01


I recieved my pocketlab yesterday and am testing the sensors right now.  The tempersture sensor seems to be off a few degrees, but i think it would just need some calibration. My question is if its possible to calibrate it via app, so that the values that are calculated from it (dew point) are more precise too, right?
