Every week another batch of cool ideas lands in my inbox courtesy of the trend spotters at Springwise.com. Noteworthy this week:
- The Kyocera-made Mi-Look is a GPS-enabled mobile device which helps ensure the safety of elders who live alone.
- Think about sandwich generation applications. How's Mom? What's she doing? Where is she?
- Curious about how your smoker's lungs look? Find out at SapientNitro.
- Think about other applications for so-called augmented reality - patient education, health counseling, pre-surgical orientation. As the website says, further possibilities abound. The hearts of non-exercisers. The skin of sun-worshipers. The livers of imbibers.
- Groundswell Health is a San Francisco company that’s bringing the power of Groupon-style collective buying to healthcare practices and other purchasers of medical supplies and equipment.
- "Now in beta, Groundswell Health aims to help the healthcare industry achieve real savings on the medical goods and services that are bought and sold every day."
