Do you worry about electromagnetic pollution? Wireless is cool, especially because it works without wires. On the other hand, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, broadcast radio & TV transmitters, mobile phones and a plethora of electronic gadgets and instruments with base stations on every roof are polluting the electromagnetic environment in which we live. Is this pollution harmful for living organisms or not? Nobody really knows.
Does this worry you? Do you wonder how dirty the ether that surrounds you really is? Then the Elektor Tapir is what you need. A tapir is a large browsing mammal, similar in shape to a pig, with a short, prehensile snout. The Elektor Tapir is a small electronic device, similar in shape to a cigarette lighter with an antenna. It comes as a complete kit including two types of electromagnetic detectors and earphones. Sturdy and easy to build, the Elektor Tapir will sniff electro smog of almost any frequency.
The Tapir PCB is sponsored by Beta Layout allowing us to sell the kit of parts at a ridiculously low price of only £13.30 / € 14,95 / $21.50!
