Philips has developed a lightbulb that connects to broadband networks and then lets iPhone users change the colour and brightness with an app.
The Philips ‘Hue’ lightbulb, which cost 179 pounds for a starter pack that includes broadband connection equipment and three bulbs, screw into existing sockets and use just 20 percent of the energy of conventional bulbs.
Users are then able to turn lightbulbs on or off or adjust their brightness from anywhere in the world - from their sofa or while on holiday, the Telegraph reported.

iTypewriter: Yes, It’s An iPad Typewriter

BECAUSE IF APPLE CAN’T FIGURE OUT IPAD TYPING, WE’RE GOING TO TAKE SOME EXTREME MEASURES.
Some say typewriters ruined writing, making it too impulsive. Others insist the word processor really did it in, making it too editable (and thereby even more impulsive). But as a writer, for whatever my flimsy badge be worth, I think it’s pretty clear that the iPad (and iPhone) ruined writing, as every ducking word that I type comes out wrong.
So maybe it’s fitting that Austin Yang designed the iTypewriter—a real, functioning typewriter that strikes its hammers right against the iPad’s Gorilla Glass keyboard instead of paper.

AliveCor lets you check your pet’s heart rate using an iPhone
Veterinarians looking to measure the heart rate of their furry patients now only need to look as far as their iPhone 4 or 4S. AliveCor’s Veterinary Heart Rate Monitor combines an iPhone case and a free app so that users can take an ECG (electrocardiogram) using only their phone. The $199 case, which is currently only available in the US, features two electrode strips that make contact with the animal’s skin to take the necessary readings. That information can then be read via a free mobile app, as well as be stored online for later access. The company says that the monitor is ideal dogs, cats, and horses, and it’s also working on developing a version for humans — though its website points out that the device has yet to be cleared by the FDA for use in the US.

Have you ever tried making a smooth panning timelapse video? Did you try holding your camera with superhuman steadiness or maybe even bribing a turtle with a fancy artisanal salad?

What if taking your blood pressure was as easy and straightforward as making a phone call?
Withings Launches iOS Device Connected Blood Pressure Monitor with Online Monitoring and Measurement Storage.
This revolutionary new product created by Withings, dramatically improves access to BP measurements for users worldwide.
With hypertension affecting almost 25% of the world population, blood pressure measurement can help to save lives. However, until  now, taking your blood pressure required the use of complex devices with multiple manipulations, mathematical operations and data recording procedures. Self-measurement has been recommended by the medical profession for many years, but no one had yet found concrete solutions to expand its use.  
This is why Withings chose to rethink the blood pressure monitor and turn it into an attractive, user-friendly connected device.   
With the Withings Blood Pressure monitor, measuring and understanding your blood pressure couldn’t be easier. All data is recorded and saved to the user’s secure online space for easy measurement access and retrieval through their iPhone, iPad or iPod. 
Self-measurement is made simple by the Withings Blood Pressure monitor.  It improves the reliability of readings and offers the option to share them with relatives, healthcare providers or medical professionals. 
Through the Withings API, specialist partners can interface with the platform to offer additional services, as Withings has already proven with its WiFi Body Scale and partners such as Google Health, Microsoft HealthVault and numerous health & sports coaching websites such as DailyBurn.com, RunKeeper.com, FitOrbit.com, gymtechnik.com, aujourdhui.com, Strands.com, Danholt4mac.com, Jogmap.de…and many more. 
Says Withings co-founder Cédric Hutchings: “Apple revolutionized the world of smartphones by making them more user-friendly than ever before. By adding connectivity to high-tech devices, we simplify their usage and enrich them with extra services. Our goal is to take the drama out of using devices that can promote healthier lifestyles for all. We have achieved this with our Withings body scale, and are now repeating our success with the Withings Blood Pressure monitor”.
