Samsung patents phone that would send vitals to doctors
05/04/12, 4:35pm
Samsung has filed a patent some time ago with the USPTO for a phone with built-in biometric scanners that is hooked up to the Internet. The so-called biological analysis device would monitor a user's health and could send that data to a hospital, diagnosis service, or a doctor located in another city, country, or continent.

Biochips, or sensors that a user wears or has them somehow implanted, could also submit the data they collect to the phone for retransmitting the information. Exactly when or even if the gadget will hit the consumer market remains to be seen. [via Engadget]
