Takedown Of Digital Pregnancy Tests

Rumble / Health & FitnessI love a good teardown as much as the next gadget nerd, but two teardowns of digital pregnancy tests on Twitter illustrate how “technology” for reproductive health often misses the mark. The first teardown comes via Twitter user @CrunkComputing: “My wife had been checking if she was pregnant, initially with test strips, which can cost as little as 20 cents each,” the user wrote. “She got some positive readings, so wanted something ‘more accurate,’ a digital test.” Except upon cracking open the Clearblue digital pregnancy test, it became apparent that the only thing the “techy” parts did was... read a manual test strip.
