How Cell Phones Will Help Prevent The Next Plague

Did you always think your mobile device would never amount to anything but a giant time-suck? How many times has someone told you to "stop looking at that thing!"? As it turns out, phones can be used to actually make the world a better place.

Who would've known?


This article details an initiative by the Office of Naval Research to use mobile phones in biological and natural disaster areas in order toe map and contain the spread of disease, illness, earthquakes, and any other natural phenomenon that can be easily mapped. The system uses a combination of text messages, pictures, vocal recordings, and any other data that can be pieced together to form a more thorough depiction of an outbreak. This system could save thousands of lives, and it runs off of your #1 time-suck.
