How about getting an EKG with your iPhone?

From Red Ferret

It seems that almost every day I’m amazed by what smartphones can do. Sure, making calls, sending emails and checking the weather are cool, but some companies are really making the most of these devices. Take, for instance, this iPhone ECG that is currently being developed.

This ECG is a case that will attach to your iPhone, and provide you with an accurate ECG reading, with nothing more than a phone. It can be used either in your hands, or against the chest to take a reading. The results can be stored both locally, and uploaded elsewhere via WiFi. You can perform breathing exercises for relaxation, and use the ECG to see how your heartbeat corresponds to the relaxation. The device is still awaiting approval by the government as a proven medical instrument, so it may still be a little while before we see these on the market. There is also an Android version in the works.
