Mobosens is a smartphone-attachable sensor that detects concentrations of different water contaminants, including nitrate, arsenic, ammonia and phosphate, and transmits the data to preferred social media outlets and private servers. Further expansion plans on this nanotechnology-enabled sensor include other contaminants, such as heavy metal, carcinogens, and bacteria, as well as improvements to render the tool better-suited for use in low-resource settings.
