Looking for a way to tag the photos you snap with your blood pressure and body temperature? Sony has a patent filing in the works that could do just that.
Published on Thursday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, a patent application called "Camera button with integrated sensors
" describes the technology.
A sensor in the mobile device's camera would record stats of the photo shooter, such as body temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate, blood oxygen level, and skin conductance. That information would be recorded into memory and tagged to a specific photo, just as the date, time, and other details are recorded as metadata for digital photos today.
Why would someone want to take a selfie and tag it with vital signs?
