Dr. Aydogan Ozcan at UCLA has created a disease-detecting cell phone by hacking a Sony Ericsson w810i camera phone. Using a filtered light source, the hacked cell phone captures images of cells that are then analyzed on a desktop computer.
According to Wired, Ozcan’s technology allows the hacked cell phone to detect specific diseases like malaria or count CD4+T cells to monitor an HIV patient’s health.
