Those apps are really getting more and more unique. This one is even good to help you look after your basic vital signs. The new Philips Vital Signs Camera App for the Apple iPad 2 will certainly be something that would actually be a benefit to you.

The Philips Vital Signs is a unique app that makes use of the iPad 2’s camera to work. What it does is it measures your heart rate based from the color of your face. It also measures your breathing rate by analyzing the motion of your chest. All you need to do is place the iPad on the table and position your face inside the marked area on the screen. You need to sit still and remain silent as the app tries to measure your heart rate and breathing rate using the methods mentioned above.

The Philips Vital Signs Camera app should only be used as a basic means to monitor your heart rate and breathing rate at home. It should not be used in any way to diagnose or make clinical measurements of your vital signs. More accurate devices might be needed for that. Just consider it as a fun app to help you get some idea of your vital signs at home. The Philips Vital Signs Camera app is available for download at the App Store for US$1.
