If this isn't real, as medgadget.com suggests, then it will undoubtedly be a reality in the near future. A product called p-Teq claims to be a USB pregnancy test kit. Pee on it, plug it in to your computer, and see if you are pregnant and if so, the estimated delivery date based on the concentration of hCG, hCG-H, and LH in your urine. Not pregnant? The analysis also includes your most fertile days to help you along.
Implications - This digitally enhanced pregnancy test takes results one step further than the conventional pink or blue stick. The test can detect exact urine concentrations, and the advanced LCD display will indicate insanely intricate information -- it can even tell you if you're having twins!
