Obamacare Anyone?

Free healthcare? How about a $200 phone case?

Step aside, NHS, as Indian tech company Azoi have invented a phone case called Wello that acts like a doctor! It can measure your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, blood oxygen and more using it's built in sensors, which connects to a Wello app which displays all those vital stats, which you can then look at and see if you're nice and supple or borderline crippled. So, it's basically an ugly $200 phone case that tells you when to see a doctor. Genius.

No, really, it is!

You can buy the case for your iPhone 4S, 5 or 5S in Autumn this year, but if you have another iPhone or Android phone that runs 4.4 KitKat, you'll have to buy an attachment that fits the case, as all that technology could probably only fit in a case that size. Sure, there are plenty of other options if you want to get fit that are much cheaper, but if you've got money to burn and you want to keep a check on your healthy at all times, give the Wello a try!

What do you guys think? Should the Wello be able to be prescribed by doctors, so that they can check up on a patients help? Or is it just a novelty? Tell us in the comments below!
