Simplicity by making health data more accessible
A company called Nuralogix has done the impossible … it’s made selfies decidedly more useful.

GutNote from Suntory, the Japanese beverages company, shared the world’s first smartphone application that enables users to check their gut health through the sound of their peristaltic motion—wave-like muscle contractions that move food through the digestive tract.

Gadgets that wow engage audiences for just a moment. But those people and things that make our lives better stay with us for a lifetime.
