Using A Smartphone Camera To Measure Heart Rate

Strange as it may sound, an app has been developed that can measure heart rate by using only the smartphone camera. Resting heart rate can be a meaningful predictor of future health, and by regularly using something like the Cardio Buddy app, it generates a useful history that a health professional can work from.

...research published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health revealed that for each rising increment of 10 heart beats per minute, the risk of heart attack mortality increased 18 percent among women and 10 percent in men.
