It’s still relatively early in mobile health, although there are glucose monitors that can be tacked onto iPhones, heart rate and sleep monitoring apps and of course, plenty of exercise and diet-tracking products. Now that many basic product concepts have been laid out, it’s time for iteration.

Red Dress Effect: Women In Red Deemed Open To Sexual Advances, Study Of Men Shows
Red dresses muddle men's minds, just ask The Matrix's Neo. In a scene from the 1999 sci-fi film, the hero is famously ambushed after becoming distracted by a woman on the street wearing a slinky red outfit.
They showed 25 men a photo of a single woman doctored to look, in different cases, like she was wearing either a red or white T-shirt. The researchers then asked the volunteers to gauge, on a scale from 1 to 9, how keen the model seemed to be on romance. In other words, the men answered the question: "Is she interested in sex?"
Men interpreted the red outfit as a signal that the woman was indeed more open to sexual advances. In fact, the guys tended to grade the woman's disposition to sex about 1 to 1.5 points higher when she was wearing a red rather than a white tee, by Mar 7

Objects that resemble faces are everywhere. Whether it’s New Hampshire’s erstwhile granite “Old Man of the Mountain,” or Jesus’ face on a tortilla, our brains are adept at locating images that look like faces. However, the normal human brain is almost never fooled into thinking such objects actually are human faces. “You can tell that it has some ‘faceness’ to it, but on the other hand, you’re not misled into believing that it is a genuine face,” says Pawan Sinha, professor of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT.
How does our brain know what is a face and what's not?
Babies can tell when their parents are telling a joke according to research published in the Society’s British Journal of Developmental Psychology. Mums and dads use a particular tone of voice when being humorous and when babies hear this, along with laughter, they understand that they are hearing a joke. The study was carried out by Dr Elena Hoicka of the University of Stirling Baby and Toddler Lab and Merideth Gattis of Cardiff University.
