+ - Smartphones Take on Silent Killers->

Submitted by Velcroman1
Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "New technology can turn your cellphone into a portable “silent killer” detector. And in the near future, this technology has the potential to convert the average cellphone into a handheld detector capable of warning you of chemical warfare attacks and automatically calling for help.

On Wednesday, the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology division demonstrated at the California Fire Department’s training center exactly how this new Cell-All technology — which we learned about back in April of last year — can save lives. As of this week, Synkera Technologies has a Bluetooth version developed with DHS available to the public for trial and evaluation. An external sleeve that would go over the phone — and was developed by NASA's Center for Nanotechnology with a major smartphone manufacturer — may soon be available as well."
