    Abstract:
    Bioscope is a sensor that, according to developers, is able to perceive a physiological state of biological organisms. The sensor is based on measuring the intensity of light scattered from a thin opaque material. In this paper we describe two replications of this sensor, performed by two independent laboratories located in different countries. Measurements are curried out with biological (plants) and organic objects, and different rotational, entropic, fiber-optic and hydrodynamic devices. Additional high resolution sensors of temperature and humidity are utilized in over a hundred of measurements. The obtained results do not allow making unambiguous conclusions and require revising the design of reflection-scattering elements. Some measurements demonstrate uncharacteristic dependencies between temperature, humidity and sensor output, which indicate a necessity of further research with this device.
