Today’s smart phones, smart wristwatch / bracelet, and other so-called “smart” devices can help people complete the work of a number of physical health checks at home. But Google seems to be more ambitious plans for some of them in January 2015 applied for a patent on the bathroom, this patent was published on July 21 this year, if true, Google will help people create a health bathroom monitoring function.
According to the details of the patent it shows that Google hopes arranged a series of sensors and cameras in the bathroom, in order to monitor human health, and medical institutions when necessary notification. Specifically, Google has such a future bathroom mirror capable of sensing different colors, measuring pressure and electrical changes in the foot, pressure-sensitive ultrasonic bath and toilet seat.
From a functional point of view, the mirror can measure changes in the user’s skin color, floor mats can measure heart rate, blood pressure can be measured and the toilet seat and the overall health condition of the body. Although the ultrasonic bath may issue a high frequency sound waves to complete the echo test, but it can be realized how specific function is not clear.
Although this patent, the monitoring is focused on the user’s cardiovascular health, but Google think these monitoring tools can do more for the health of the user. When not good at hardware, Google can this patent a reality is another matter.
