Are we teaching our students to think like this? How do standardized test cutlrures in schools  help students create out of the box products like this?—TBH

Here’s the cool part: The results from the app are within 5 percent of those from commercial spirometers that run into the thousands of dollars. That level of accuracy means the app is already meeting medical standards.

The app, called SpiroSmart, analyzes the sound waves from a strong exhale to judge the health of the person’s lungs. The results from testing on an iPhone 4S were presented earlier this month at the Association for Computing Machinery’s International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing.”

Apps can help us do so many things. This is great.
