The fingernail sensor is a prototype, developed by IBM, that keeps track of your health. It is a portable and wireless device that continuously measures how a person’s fingernail bends and moves – an indicator of gripping power. In this way, the sensor can detect illnesses such as Parkinson’s and keep track of how these people are doing.
The prototype falls under Humanized Tech because it helps people monitor their health. So you’re in charge yourself, and that’s why this technology doesn’t dominate people but reinforces them.
