An Envirokit are a set of scanners used by Environmental Specialists to better study new and usual environments. This kit contains only three items, but they are very sophisticated pieces of equipment that require a skilled operator to properly use and interpret the results.
A standard envirokit contains the following:
- Bioscanner — This device consists of a network of straps and electrodes connected to a readout gauge. When attached to a plant or animal, living or dead, it can determine what type organism is being examined and whether it is edible or poisonous.
- Geoscanner — The geoscanner can break down up to a first-sized sample of rock or soil and analyze it. It will report what minerals the sample contains and whether there are likely to be valuable ore, gas or oil deposits nearby.
- Vaporscanner — A vaporscanner is a small device that contains sensitive gas analyzers. It will report on a digital screen what gaseous elements are present, their quantities and whether breathing them is dangerous.
