Look Into My Eyes... And I'll Know How Sick You Are
from the who-needs-medical-monitoring-equipment? dept
Having recently had an unexpected trip to the hospital (nothing major happened) it's an interesting experience to see how the nurses and doctors quickly swarm around to do various tests to make sure you're not about to die on them (at least, I hope that's what they were doing). Now, one company is trying to simplify that process with a special scanner that can scan your eyes, and give a reading on a variety of health issues. Apparently, your eyes provide a lot of information concerning your health, including "injuries, illnesses and physical abnormalities." Of course, the next thing we'll be hearing are scare stories about advertisers getting their hands on these things (though, probably not at their current cost) and pitching ads to you based on your physical problems.
