What looks like a bulky female hygiene product is actually a health monitor that hooks up to an iPhone via Bluetooth, sending bodily information such as heart rates to the compatible app.To their engineers: Any color but white or light blue, okay?
It's not on sale yet, with Proteus' Raisin sensor only just being passed through the FDA, but it's another step for the iPhone into the operating room, after Apple showed off the Lifescan app by Johnson & Johnson at last year's WWDC, which works alongside a wireless glucose meter. Diabetes can analyze the glucose levels in their blood, with the information being sent to the iPhone app over Bluetooth.
The Zephyr HxM is a new Bluetooth heart rate monitor that looks much better. Doesn't work on iPhones, but apparently on everything else (Android, Nokia, BlackBerry).
