Fancy peeing on your phone for a free diagnosis?

by Gareth Mankoo

We all have phones. Some major brands and some smart China rip-offs. But what matters at the end of the day is that we treat these gizmos as our connection to the rest of mankind. So, that makes them precious; enough to not want to pee on them. This new technology, that’s still in its development phase, allows self diagnosis by taking inputs from urine samples, using smartphones. It will help you know what that rash was all about or what the itch actually indicated. You can, privately, diagnose yourself to check for STDs.

The developers believe that the device that turns your phone to a doctor will be about the size of a USB dongle and may cost you just $1 a piece.
