Believe it, y'all: scientists are developing cheap, disposable chips that will be able to diagnose any of a range of sexually transmitted diseases that you might be carrying. All you have to do would be to pee on your phone. Or pee on a chip, and then plug it into your phone. And, viola, you've got male itch. Or female itch. Or whatever.

Joke about dropping your phone in the toilet, joke about coverage area, joke about app store, joke about loving your phone. Joke about herpes.

This is disturbing on so many levels. Doesn't this pose a public health threat? Most people are not trained in lab safety and I am having nightmares about urine soaked chips and phones passing from person to person... Disgusting!
