To go along with that Japanese cellphone which analyzes your skin, a whole bunch of health-care handsets turned up at Korea's International Medical and Hospital Equipment Show this week. Among them, a cellphone for diabetics from LG with a microchip that can measure glucose levels, then gather up the data and automatically send it off to a person's doctor; a phone which can measure the percentage of fat in your body; one that gauges skin humidity level; and lastly, a handset with a built-in "massaging function" (we'll leave that up to your imagination).
