Google Lens can make your life easier in all sorts of ways. I personally find it both fun and helpful to play with, and it keeps adding new features applicable to our daily lives. One of them has just been announced, letting you identify skin conditions. In fact, you can scan any change in skin, hair, or nails and find relevant results in a jiffy.
We already use our phones to do tons of things remotely, and their cameras will soon help us do more than just take photos and videos. Enter smartphone skin scanner (dermatoscope). It’s a coin-sized gadget that attaches to your phone and transforms its camera into a microscope. This device allows doctors to capture high-quality photos of any suspicious molds without requiring you to visit the hospital for an appointment.
A recent study shows that three out of four stock images show babies sleeping in unsafe environments. The study was carried out by Baby Center and analysed hundreds of images available on stock photography sites such as Getty Images, iStock, and Shutterstock.
Each year, there are about 3,400 sudden unexpected infant deaths (also called SIDS or cot death) in the United States, with strangulation and suffocation in bed among the top reported causes, says Baby Center. 77 per cent of the stock images analysed show babies sleeping in a manner that goes against safe sleep guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and other organizations.
