The Sensordrone, an invention that dramatically extends the sensing capabilities of smartphones and tablets, came out of the Consumer Products category, but could well have been entered in almost all of the categories because of its versatility. The keyfob- sized device includes sensors that enable consumers to run a variety of medical applications — from blood pressure monitoring to temperature sensing to breath alcohol testing. But, in addition to medical uses, the device is open to a wide range of applications, depending on whether it’s for home safety use, medical use, industrial, or construction use. It could be used to monitor carbon monoxide, humidity, light, and weather, or as an altimeter, barometer, stud-finder, data-logger, and more.
