This new iPhone App and also a clinical device attaches to your iPhone and does wonderful things that normally you’d have to pay a huge sum for. The app is called the iPhonECG and i’m sure just by the name you’d have known that attached with the case this app turns the iPhone into an ECG reading machine. It also works with the iPod Touch and the iPad, though obviously not as a case.
The case connects to the iPhone/iPod Touch and the iPad via Bluetooth and it’s supposed to hit the market with a price tag close of $100 including the app. The case is developed by a company called AliveCor and has two electrodes behind the case that isn’t as great as a real ECG machine but does the job quite well monitoring your heart rates and patterns. Check out the video below and see how it works:
The device will be showcased at CES next week. Thus, once it’s launch you won’t have to spend a lot on medical checkups of your heart, that is if you trust this device.
Here’s a new QWERTY Keyboard Case for the iPhone, just strap it on and there you go, well not exactly. You get a fully functional full QWERTY keyboard that connects to the iPhone via Bluetooth and charges itself using a USB cable.
The additional keyboard is by a company called Boxwave and they’ve named this wonderful attachment as the Keyboard Buddy Case, which acts as a slide-out keyboard and also as a protection case for the iPhone.
Once the Keyboard Buddy is attached to the iPhone, it doubles the size and thus adds a few more ounces to the weight too. Not too bulky though, unlike other iPhone keyboard cases out there this is quite slimmer and on a full charge lasts upto 45 days. This would be very helpful for people who want to get an iPhone but aren’t comfortable with the on-screen QWERTY.
