GlucoPhone: What Can’t Cell Phones Do?


By Evan Ackerman

Maybe your cell phone plays music. Maybe it plays videos. Maybe it lets you surf the web. And maybe it even lets you make the occasional phone call. But can it check your blood sugar? That’s right, the hot new cellphone feature is now a built-in glucose meter. GlucoPhone is a module that attaches to some Verizon Cell Phones that uses small blood samples and test strips to check your blood sugar levels.


You can also download software into your phone that tracks and records your glucose levels, and then sends them to your doctor (or anyone else who might be concerned about those extra donuts). Currently it’s only compatible with the Verizon LG5200 phone, but more models should be forthcoming.
