This Pixel has a hidden health feature
Researchers at UC San Diego have created an app that can detect diseases like Alzheimer’s by using the camera to examine a patient’s pupil. It’s the latest way smartphone cameras have been shown to be effective in diagnosing disease. And while it’s good to know that you may already have a health monitoring tool in your pocket, how far this technology goes could have an impact on you beyond your health.

How close do you all think we are to a future where your smartphone can replace expensive bespoke medical devices?
I'll trust an electrical engineering PHD over a social justice internet writer on what's useful thanks
The nothing ear (1) is selling for 64usd in India on flipkart. Should I buy it now?
That is actually pretty cool! I wonder what the future will hold and if we'll see things similar to this
Watching on my pixel 4 xl
This has to be one of the dumbest smartphone features that has ever been released.
That is creepy. Cientists use Lidar to find cities long lost and dozens of meters under the surface. What can they do with it on our smartphones???
Whole new meaning to EyePhone 👀
Thank you 🙂,

Quite literally the worst phone I've ever owned ever.
We call it Voight Kampff for short
Wow, so project Soli was useful!!
Feels strange to find this video randomly at the day it was uploaded… wow… I usually don't watch this kind of videos
People sweating profusely in Final Destination world
great vid, im still using my 4 :)))
Why are so many people discussing the Pixel 4 in 2022 all of a sudden?
I have a pixel 4 where can i download this?
Samsung S8 to note 9 all of em had iris scanners as well, innit?
how can I participate in this study?
This is pretty impressive as long as it’s controlled and not weaponized to further expand the capabilities of biometric identification
Stopped watching the video mid way because I got shown 3 unskipable ads in just over 4 minutes of viewing time
Dieter bhai ko wapis leke ao…tum logo se nahin ho payega!!
Upgraded from P4XL to P6 because I don't like the curved screen on P6 Pro, but now I feel it's not worth it.
I knew Vjeran had to be from Croatia! Greetings from Slovenia my man!
I think I will hold onto my Pixel 4XL a little longer after this video. Lol
Nothing is free after that here come the google to the rescue by sending you medication promoted by them
Make it short at least
I guess they chose the Pixel 4 since it is one of the few devices with the IR camera and that on Android they can hack into that system unlike iOS and Face ID. But it is a one off device that didn’t sell that well. I think if they brought this to every iPhone with Face ID, it would have a greater reach. But if they’re trying to reach customers that don’t have access to good healthcare (poorer, rural, etc) these people are likely to have older phones like the 6, 7 or SE or cheaper Android devices that don’t have the capability to do this.
More useful than building a device from scratch. Everyone has a phone, so if we can use a wide range of devices already readily available it can open up a wide range of healthcare diagnosis.
Cool useful innovations. looking for more development in near future.
