Bluetooth Pregnancy Test at CES (Why Do We Need This?)

Elle.com reports on a new Bluetooth pregnancy test from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). My question: why do we need this?

For the record, you have to pee on a stick, but this fancy new stick connects to your iPhone via Bluetooth.

But also! You can watch soothing videos while you wait three minutes for the results. From Elle.com:

The company released its Pregnancy PRO Digital Pregnancy Test at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. The sticks, which look just like your typical pregnancy tests, sync with a smartphone app via Bluetooth. You then urinate on the stick, as you normally would, and the app notifies you once it detects a sample. Then, a countdown clock shows three minutes until the result is ready. While you await the anxiety-ridden three minutes, you can click on “Calm Me,” “Educate Me,” or “Entertain Me” to either learn about fertility or just watch puppy videos to ease your nerves.

Oy vey. Maybe it won’t catch on.
