What IT is

According to Gary Marshall, well with this Android app you can’t, but scientists have made a metal detector app. So if you are a emergency physician and you have a patient you can see if they have an implant. I think this is cool because if I had a hand held metal detector in your pocket.imgres.jpg

It is made by the students at Griffith University in Australia. It relies only on the GPS in the smartphone. I think this is cool because I don’t even have to drive it. imgres.jpg

        

Can you believe a phone that turns into a medical lab. Researchers at the University of Illinois have created a iPhone app that turns the device into a featured mobile medical lab. According to Gary Marshall It uses the phone's camera to detect toxins, proteins, bacteria, and viruses. Even though it only costs $200 it is just as functional as a $50,000 lab. I think this is cool because I can be safe most the time.

How IT Works

        Have you ever wondered if smartphones can work in space, well according to Gary Marshall in February 2013 a smartphone went into space. But it wasn’t in an astronaut's pocket it was the base of the satellite. Scientists call it a nanosatellite because it just about the size of a shoebox. It circles around the earth gathering data with the phone apps. For a little joke they used find my phone to see if it would work in space (it didn’t). imgres.jpg
