Aidmics to Release Fertility Gadget For Your iPad

This story is certainly not going to be a typical iPad feature, but I can promise you it’s unique. iPads are versatile and can be used to run a multitude of applications for a vast array of industries. You know the phrase “think outside the box” Well, Taiwanese startup by the name of Aidmics has invented a device which connects to an iPad with the aim to measure sperm.

I know, I can hear the editor of eTeknix crying as well, but let’s continue, Aidmics is hoping to cash in on the $40 billion global human fertility market with the iPad compatible gadget. The early concept of this design has been sold to livestock farmers, with the outcome being 200 sets sold since August 2014. The aim for this product is to re-market the device for the commercial mainstream.

The price point at which this device is to be sold to the general public would be between $100 – $200 (£64 – £128), so how does it work? Well, I did research this and I do wonder what Google now thinks of me, but it operates by utilizing a tiny microscope which enlarges the contents of a few drops of sperm from inside a pipette which is backlit. The light beams the moving image to the iPad camera, and algorithms then analyse the sample for total sperm count and motility and how fast sperm can swim; more details are below.

It’s a useful invention which does have real world potential to assist couples in their quest to have a child, but woe betide anyone who has their iPad hacked into.

Thank you Aidmics and Reuters for providing us with this information.
