Lapka is a personal environment monitor that connects to your phone. The device detects ions, molecules, particles, and wavelengths and monitors them to determine potential chemical or radiation threats. It will also inspect for significant amounts of nitrates in food, making it easier to determine whether a raw food is organic or not. Isn’t that cool? Sometimes it feels like we’re living in the future.

I just saw this at the Consumer Electronic Show in Vegas! The design and quality of materials used is impressive. I am excited to see how it does!

Oh, very cool Natalie. I am excited too.

Cool, but I think it would drive me up the wall!

No that is crazy smart.

Koseli, I went to a lecture by Dr. Eric Topol and it was truly mindblowing/mindexpanding. Part of his lecture (and not even the most mind-blowing part) was centred around apps and smartphone tools that can be used to improve the dealivery of health care and in fact health outcomes. Unfortunately there isn’t a podcast of the lecture, but check out this link to see a photo from it that is in the spirit of your post today:

Thanks for the link, Linda. That is so interesting. I really believe it’s going to be these makers and inventors that are going to come out of left field and help us figure out our health care crisis.
