Cue Health Tracker: The Hypochondriac’s Dream – Nightmare? – Gadget

by Lambert Varias

Technology companies are really going after the wallets of health buffs nowadays, what with specialized gear, music players, weighing scales, fitness trackers and more. And now there’s Cue, a device that analyzes samples from your body and provides recommendations on improving your health based on its findings.

Cue may sound like your personal Gregory House, but it’s not going to be able to check you for lupus. When it launches, Cue will be able to measure the levels of your testosterone, luteinizing hormone (to detect fertility), C-reactive protein (to detect inflammation) and Vitamin D. It will also be able to alert you of the onset of flu by detecting the presence of the influenza A virus in your body. Other types of cartridges may be released in the future.

You need Cue’s proprietary one-time use cartridges and wands to collect samples. Depending on what you want to measure, you’ll use a wand to collect blood, saliva or skin from your nostril and then insert the want to the right type of cartridge. The cartridge goes in to Cue, which will analyze the sample and then send its findings to your mobile device. Cue works with iOS and Android devices that support Bluetooth 4.0.

See if your browser’s doing okay then head to Cue’s official website for more information and to pre-order the device. As of this writing, the device costs $149 (USD) and comes with a set of cartridges. Additional cartridges will cost $20 for five cartridges and five wands, with the exception of the flu cartridges, which will cost $30 for three cartridges and three wands. Check yourself before you wreck yourself, but don’t check yourself too often or you’ll go broke. Yourself.
