Mm... disease on your breath. This is already such a sexy phone story.
Symbian Freak is reporting that UK nano-scale production company Applied Nanodetectors have modded a Nokia N95 with a chip that can detect gases such as oxygen, ammonia and nitrogen. Different levels of these gases can indicate certain diseases, so, using an app written for the N95's S60 platform, the phone can then report the detection of these diseases.
The company says the device would be able to detect food poisoning, diabetes, lung cancer, asthma, and the obvious one, drunkenness.
They will first discuss the sale of the phone with carriers in Japan, and no schedule has yet been determined for European markets.
