Two innovative uses of technology came forward this week:
Apple applied for a patent on new light-metering systems for iOS5. THe system uses face tracking combined with metering. The idea is to make sure in your pictures, there's a high enough exposure so that you can see the faces of backlit people.
Smart pills could help you be sure you;ve taken your medication. Copper and magnesium in the pills combines with digestive fluids to produce a very low voltage. This is picked up by a skin patch, that then notifies an app on a smart phone that you've taken your medication. Doctors say it could help with patients who need help caring for themselves. THe FDA has approved the technology, but it;s only been used in placebo pills.
