An App That Knows Why You Cough — Smartphone apps in development will help diagnose and manage diseases-including cough causes, sleep apnea and bipolar disorder Celebrities and professional athletes are among the few Americans with doctors and other health care workers at their beck and call.

Would you buy this UV-sensing pen that stops sunburn? — We all know we should wear sunscreen to protect ourselves from burns and help prevent skin cancer. Trouble is, putting on that protective layer of lotion, and keeping it up, isn't an exact science. Package instructions, and even the FDA, suggest reapplying sunscreen at least every two hours.

How one startup plans to end the EpiPen Monopoly — Kleenex has tissues. Band-Aid has bandages. Dunkin has doughnuts. And EpiPen has automatic epinephrine injectors. To the millions of Americans with food allergies (dairy, peanuts, soy, shellfish, and so on), a shot of epinephrine can be the difference between life and death.

The Hacker's Guide To Smart Yards [Interactive] — Smart energy is about more than what device you use; it's about how you use it. Soon, you'll be able to program your home to draw from personal solar and wind systems whenever they're producing electricity. The dark side of a yard is the upkeep. These tools will help you take back your weekends.

These Absurd Robots Do Pointless Jobs — One day, robots will most likely take on many of our most mundane chores. No more folding of laundry or washing of dishes. But until that day comes, we'll have to settle for ones that take on less-necessary duties. These three ridiculous machines are masters of their utterly odd jobs.

How Mountain View-Based Startup Veniam Is Putting Wi-fi On Wheels — The reasons to love public Wi-Fi are many: downloads go faster than on cellular networks, it's cheap to set up, and it's free to use. Too often, however, it's also spotty: strong in one place, weak in another.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 5

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 3 — All smart thermostats share a common goal: save money while staying comfortable. An Internet connection allows them to adjust the indoor temperature based on outdoor conditions--some even factor in humidity. But the best way for a home to adapt to its residents is still up for debate.

Make Your Home Smarter, Step 1 — Different products can cause chaos when they don't communicate. So choose a platform that uses a networking hub or an app (or both) to marry disparate devices and give your house a centralized brain from the get go. Most WeMo devices can connect to an app right out of the box, no tinkering required.

The Hacker's Guide To Smart Homes — Sure, we've heard a lot about smart homes and how they're the wave of the future. Yet that future has always seemed just over the horizon. But now several home-automation platforms have emerged that give Internet-connected devices--gizmos like lightbulbs, outlets, thermostats, and motion sensors--something they lacked: the ability to communicate with one another.
