DuoFertility skin patch keeps watch on ovulation

It's been quite a while since we've seen any significant advances in ovulation monitoring technology, but this new DuoFertility skin patch looks set to shake things up a bit, with it taking an always-on approach to keeping tabs on your (or your significant other's) fertility status. That's done with the help of a patch worn under the arm, which continuously monitors basal body temperature and can be read at any time in just a few seconds with the aid of the reader (pictured above). If you need a bit more information, you can then plug the reader into your PC and get your fertility status in chart and graph form. No word on a release 'round these parts just yet, but those in Europe will apparently be able to pick 'em up "later this year" for $1,000 apiece.
