Have iPhone, Will Take Spectra

I've seen apps for scientific communication and even for microscopy. It was only a matter of time until someone wrote an app for an iPhone's camera to be able to separate light into its components: the iPhone spectrometer. The great thing about this is you just need some black construction paper and a diffraction grating ... and an iPhone or iPad. Then you can go around separating the light around you into rainbows that reveal how the light is made. I'm feeling a home science project coming on right now ...

Check it out here.
