FLOTONIX LLC and new subsidiary Beanmetrix
We are a new company in Oregon, specializing in wireless sensors.
Beanmetrix division was launched in June 2015 move the analysis of coffee beans
from guesswork into a precise and repeatable science using a smartphone computing platform.
A Seismic Event!
Inspired by the sensing of concrete as it cures, we have applied seismic network analysis to the coffee bean.
Experiments have shown that each coffee bean has a unique spectral signature with resonant frequencies
that change as the bean ages and handled and roasted.
By providing an electronic tweezer with built in piezo analyzer and wireless connectivity, this bean signature
appears on a smart phone and can tell a coffee buyer whether the bean is recently picked, damaged by moisture, roasted to first crack or second, a host of information to help ensure bean quality.
