Every now and then I think about small spectrometers (my university final year project was one). Today I'm thinking about ways to have a battery-powered spectrometer communicate with a smart device.
The way I did it in the project was to host a web server on the spectrometer and have it act as a WiFi hotspot. This seems massively overcomplicated and gave me an intense dislike of creating webapps.
@piggo Nice, that really is similar! Just a different thing being sampled. I did get this UI working in the year after I finished the project (the original one wasn't this pretty)
@piggo Oh and I got these parameters to be editable. It's actually super cool, I just hated developing both server+client side. Maybe for that reason I should just make it an all-in-one device and focus on optimising the physical UI.
