At $150 the Scanadu Scout sits at a very tempting price point for gadget lovers, which is only going to become more attractive as you learn about what it can do from Gizmodo. Aimed more at health nuts, there is still a lot of fun a geek who is less concerned about their health than the tech inside the SCOUT. In 10 seconds of you attaching the sensor to your temple, your Android or iPhone will receive data on your pulse transit time, heart rate, electrical heart activity, temperature, heart rate variability and blood oxygenation. Check out more about the SCOUT, the ScanaFlo and the ScanaFlu right here.
"The device you're looking at is called the Scanadu SCOUT and, basically, it's a medical tricorder that will give you precise vital information about any human being within seconds, just on contact."
