Tiny Spectrometer  #MakeItProChallenge

Version 1


    I would like to research using Intel´s Edison board to build a small, low cost spectrometer that can be used for medical self diagnosis. The idea is to test your saliva´s photospectrum to check if you have a disease. Saliva testing is a non-intrusive and cheap way to check a person´s health since certain chemical elements like proteins and nucleic acids are present when you suffer from a common disease such as lung cancer.
