Submission + - Boffin Makes Working Shoe Phone & Finds Use Fo (g-s.es) 1

Now a Flinders University computer scientist has combined the latest telecommunications components to produce the real thing. While it was devised as a prop for an amateur theatre production, Flinders post-doctoral fellow in bioinformatics, Paul Gardner-Stephen, realized the concepts behind the shoe phone have potential for the development of biomedical devices."
