The mobile phone liver sensor

Boffins from the Korean Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology have created a liver health senor that connects to your mobile phone. Technical details are still sketchy, but it apparently reminds users when it’s time to measure their liver health, which it does by checking two enzymes in your bloodstream. A picture leaked online shows the sensor connected to a handset via its power charger port.

The sensor then uses the handset to send its findings to a participating hospital for analysis, from where a doctor presumably gives you a call if, well, it’s time to cut back on the Egg Nog and Brandy shots.

The institute’s researchers are believed to have already filed a patent application in Korea and abroad, so it may not be long before we’re all waiting for that dreaded call from the doctor.
