While still in the development stage, several New York lawmakers want police to be able to use textalyzers to determine if a person was using a hand-held electronic device while driving. Currently, police must obtain a warrant to search phone records.
What if there was a device that could rapidly establish whether a person has influenza? This could enable the correct medical advice to be given. This will soon be possible thanks to a new breathalyzer.

A new hand-held breathalyzer that allows individuals to easily assess their blood glucose levels has been developed. The device informs the user bout diabetes risk and it differs from a medical device we reported on earlier this month.
It had to happen at some stage. The world’s first breathalyzer that can detect if someone is under the influence of marijuana has been invented. The device is likely to be adopted by many law enforcement agencies.
Imagine having a couple of drinks and taking a breathalyzer test without a police officer's involvement.
Gadgets like Bactrak and AlcoHAWK have made that possible for several years. But accuracy claims of these devices are often questioned.
While the changes are not expected to affect many cases, the court found portions of the 2008 law infringed the presumption of innocence. But the Supreme Court upheld an important change that eliminated the "two-beer" defence.
