Sensor Illustrations

Hello again! Decagon is constantly producing new instruments and sensors, which I think is intensely cool. And by "cool", I mean "interesting", in that they have teams of scientists who find a need for data in some arena (soil, water, etc.) and then they invent a sensor that's capable of collecting that data. Not only that, but they're constantly improving on older sensors as well. This kind of innovation is fascinating and also somewhat baffling to me. I wouldn't even know where to begin if I wanted to, say, create an instrument that's capable of detecting soil moisture. My complete lack of scientific wherewithal makes the innovation and ingenuity at Decagon all the more impressive. I'll tell you what I can do, however, and that's draw them sensors. Like these ones here:
