Personal Tragedy, Tricorders and the Idea of Mapping One's Body - NYTimes.com

Tue, 01/28/2014 - 11:32 -- rprice

The object Scanadu is working on is an oval disk about two inches wide and a half-inch thick. Held to the forehead, it uses light to measure oxygen intake, an accelerometer to figure out how far the chest extends in breathing, and a small electrical plate under the thumb to measure heart rate. Other sensors, some still in development, will measure temperature, blood pressure and other body functions.
