Researchers have come up with a new cellphone peripheral that might not allow you to hold clearer conversations even with a din going on in the background, but it is able to capture detailed images and analyze them to diagnose diseases including tuberculosis. Known as the CellScope, this add-on functions as a so-called fluorescence microscope, enabling it to identify the markers of disease. Hopefully this peripheral will be available cheaply to the developing world since such medical diagnostics are rare, although it is not uncommon to hold a cellphone.
