+Colorimeter
+-----------
+
+Design files, software and firmware for IO Rodeos's open source (hardware &
+software) scientific colorimeter kit for educators, students and DIY
+scientists. 
+
+Colorimeters are analytical devices commonly used in science labs to measure
+the concentration of a solution from its light absorbing properties.
+Colorimeters are extremely useful and flexible lab instruments for a wide range
+of science education labs. Some examples of how the colorimeter can be used for
+are listed below.
+
+* Investigate Beers Law - Use food dye or other colored solution to investigate
+the relationship between concentration and absorbance;
+
+* Water quality - measure several water parameters such as turbidity, pH, water
+hardness, phosphate content and more;
+
+* Population growth - measure the absorbance of a microbial culture over time to
+follow population growth;
+
+* Enzyme kinetics - measure the activity of an enzyme over time and different
+environmental parameters (temp, pH, inhibitors); Nitrogen cycle - quantify the
+amount of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate in a newly established aquarium.
