AliveCor has produced a FDA approved EKG that costs $99. The company which was started by a number of ex-googlers is attempting to take on heart disease by combining an inexpensive EKG with a four-layer-deep neural network.
The Kardia from AliveCor is about the width of two sticks of gum. Stick the $100 device on the back of your phone or slip it into your wallet, place a few fingers on it for 30 seconds, and you’ve got a medical-grade EKG reading on your phone.
