Helen sent me this interesting article entitled 5 innovative ways cell phones are being used to save lives, and it is good. Microscopes, body imaging, heart monitors and even pee-on-a-stick type diagnosis. Fascinating. Tri-corder lovers, eat your heart out.
Imagine a cell phone that could save your life. Sure, it’s there for calling your mother at three minutes to midnight when you’ve nearly missed her birthday, or taking those all-important self-portraits while on vacation. But imagine a cell phone that could transmit medical information to doctors or hospitals as quickly and easily as sending text messages. Sounds like science fiction, but innovations like this are coming to life today.
