Cellscope announces Oto HOME, which turns your cell phone into an otoscope.

Sparkfactor Design worked with Cellscope to design an iPhone case that allows the iPhone to be used as a otoscope. This device allows the diagnoses of ear infections to be done remotely. This updated version, nicknamed Oto, attaches onto an iPhone, generating an image of the ear. It’s not just for doctors: parents, school nurses, and caretakers can use it for a quick read of conditions within a child’s ear. See the news articles below for more information.
