Let’s build a smarter planet together.

For the first time, more than 100 million Americans have smartphones, according to a report by research firm comScore MobileLens … About 234 million Americans over the age of 13 used cellphones in January, meaning that the penetration for smartphones in the U.S. is around 43.3%.

Mobile Health: AgaMatrix iPhone glucose monitor | MedTech
This is an awesome device that turns the iPhone into your own personal  blood glucose meter. Well…that’s boring right? My glucose meter does  that right now. Not quite. With iPhone being directly linked to current  wireless technology the app for iBGStar automatically logs data and  sends it to the office of your health care professional so that data is  available for review is a precise format. This way your healthcare  professional can analyse the data as it comes in and make decisions to  optimize the patient’s dosage and other medical management without the  patient coming to the office.

Transitflow: An Urban App in The Making | ReadWriteWeb

Adam Greenfield was the author of what is still my favorite book about the Internet of Things, Everyware (first published in 2006). Greenfield is now walking the talk with a IoT business called Urbanscale. I’ve been following its progress, via Greenfield’s weekly newsletter on the Urbanscale blog.
One of Urbanscale’s projects is developing an iOS application called Transitflow. It’s in the design phases currently, with the goal of being a real-time transport notification and timetable app. It’s fascinating to watch this app unfold, piece by piece. It’s also an indicator of where the Internet of Things is heading.
In Week 29 of Greenfield’s notes, he introduced us to Transitflow. It’s a part of something called Project LAFAYETTE, described as “both the guts of a standalone iOS application called Transitflow we aim to launch later on this year, and the beginnings of the framework that will furnish Urbanflow with its transmobility functionality.”
Transitflow will be an iPhone app that helps you plan your travel in real-time. According to Greenfield, the aim is “to take a step beyond generic journey-planning and timetable apps, and offer people something that will reduce or eliminate the kind of experiential hassles the current generation of interactive services does very little to address.”

Timely: An iPhone App That Warns You When Earthquakes Are Coming - Technology - GOOD
In the wake of every natural disaster, people are often left uttering  the same sad refrain: “If only we could have known this was going to  happen.” Along with luck, preparedness is the key to surviving most any  disaster, even if that preparedness is hastily thrown together. When  earthquakes strike, like they did in Japan earlier this year and on  America’s East Coast yesterday, minutes and seconds can mean the  difference between life and death. Today, technology may have finally  caught up with disaster victims’ desire to see the future.
In Japan, which is still reeling from the earthquake and tsunami in March, Apple just released news that its new iOS 5 operating system will  allow users the option of receiving early earthquake notifications on  their iPhones. The warning app plugs directly into Japan’s national  earthquake warning system, one of the most advanced in the world,  and can buy iPhone users anywhere from seconds to minutes to prepare.  That’s not a lot, but it’s at least time enough to get out of a building  or move to higher ground.
Judging by the panic in New York City  and Washington, D.C. yesterday, it’s obvious that many Americans would  appreciate their own earthquake warning app. Let’s hope Apple considers  that before releasing iOS 5 to the U.S. this fall.

Next Generation Augmented Reality Will Transform Live Events | Fast Company
Imagine watching a basketball game and seeing all of the vital  statistics surround your favorite player without taking your eye off the  game. CrowdOptic aims to visually enhance the event experience through a  heads-up display on an iPhone.  Instead of marketing to consumers, however, CrowdOptic is able to  charge event organizers, sports managers, and advertisers a (sizable)  premium for hyper-detailed analytics of knowing which performers are  most popular and when. While the app itself is certainly a step forward,  what it represents is the next stage in the event experience.
Clever readers may know that commercial optical recognition, such as Google Goggle’s,  hasn’t advanced to the point where users can snap a picture to identify  a person, let alone a moving target. CrowdOptic works by sensing the  iPhone’s GPS location, compass heading, and time of day to know which  object is most likely being viewed through the iPhone screen. It needs  at least one other user looking at the same object to triangulate the  position. Thus, it can tell which band is on stage, which side of a  tennis court a player is on, or which soccer player is running down  field.
CrowdOptic then overlays the screen with data such as the name  of the song being played, say, or the point guard’s free throw  percentage. “Its the live action that matters,” says founder Jon Fisher.  Users can then snap photos, and share with friends across the social  media universe.

iPhone/Android app allows doctors to quickly diagnose stroke | KurzweilAI
Doctors can now make a stroke diagnosis using an iPhone/Android app  with close to the same accuracy as a diagnosis at a medical computer  workstation, researchers from the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Medicine have shown in a new study.
The  Resolution MD Mobile app lets physicians view and manipulate remote  medical images in high-resolution 3-D on the iPhone or Android phone,  allowing for a quick diagnosis for the treatment of stroke, cardiac  arrest, or other emergencies. The app allows for real-time access to  specialists such as neurologists, regardless of where the physicians and  patients are located, and is particularly well-suited for rural medical  settings.
