Who would have thought that the average smartphone cover might actually evolve into something that offers far more than just cosmetic appeal and protection for the handset? Take a look at what Japan’s biggest mobile carrier, NTT Docomo, recently unveiled – we are talking about a bunch of specially constructed cases that have far more in mind for the user than to deliver the usual.
Imagine your smartphone cover being able to measure the level of radiation – definitely useful when you take into account the massive earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown that happened in Japan earlier this year, not to mention it might just help you detect the Incredible Hulk around if he happens to want to play a little bit of hide and seek with you.
Not only that, there is also another smartphone jacket that can know just how your body fat and muscle bulk readings are so that you can take the necessary action and precaution to make positive steps towards your taget. There is also another model that the police might find handy – as that jacket is capable of measuring the amount of alcohol in your blood. All the hardware are stashed away on the smartphone’s cover, while the smartphone will provide the relevant interface.
