Medical device that uses spit, blood and boogers as the interface


A new device called Cue could be the first iOS accessory that uses boogers as a primary user input. The tabletop analyzer brings the power of a medical laboratory into the home and allows people to test their levels of testosterone, inflammation, vitamin D, and fertility with small amounts of blood, saliva, or nasal swabs.   While it may sound expensive for a home device,   the Cue starter pack costs $199, it is  an amazing value compared to the $40-400 dollars lab tests typically cost.  While the company is betting on consumers being the customer my prediction is the savy GP will want one so they can perform the standard lab tests right in their office–quicker, less expensive results.    As for the boogers and spit, my kids can’t wait for the flu season to test it out.
