It has four sensors and is built into a standard four pole audio jack. It is made from aluminum and titanium. These four sensors sends an audio signal which than reduce the signal amplitude witch depends on the actual readings. The software is using the calculation of the matching temperature, humidity, UV radiation and atmospheric pressure, and shows these information on the screen of your device.
