What’s the primary function of a new booger-reading iPhone app?

Answer: Monitoring health

by News Staff / June 13, 2014

A new device and iPhone app called Cue makes recommendations based on its health readings and the user’s schedule. The user loads a sample (of saliva, blood or, well, boogers) into the device to measure one of five metrics, including vitamin D, inflammation, influenza, testosterone and fertility.

After making its readings, the device sends data to the user’s smartphone, which graphs levels and makes recommendations like doctor visits, meals or exercise.
