SCiO is the world’s first affordable molecular sensor that fits in the palm of your hand. SCiO is a tiny spectrometer and allows you to get instant relevant information about the chemical make-up of materials around you, sent directly to your smartphone.

The Challenge

The main challenge of the project was focused on creating a desirable object that will empower the users’ curiosity and will be clear and simple to use.


SCiO’s spectrometer was designed to be a tangible object that enables the user to easily discover the physical qualities of the world around him. Anodized alumimun was selected as the prime material of the product in order to enhance the tactile qualities we wanted to achieve and encourage the user to touch the product as frequently as possible.
