Some people drive high.
They shouldn't, but they're high, so they don't really know what's good for them and what isn't.
Should they get stopped by police, the long nose of the law can sometimes sniff the presence of marijuana in their car.
Should they happen to have nosed their way into some cocaine, there might be traces of white powder around their nostrils.
As yet, though, there hasn't been a machine that can detect the presence of such drugs on one's breath, as there is for alcohol.

We put the S Translator app found on the new Samsung Galaxy S4 in action in the below video, and tested out two phrases in different languages. The first is, "Excuse me, where is the hospital?" and the second is, "Let's go to the mall."
Our verdict: It's not too bad, but you will need a data connection for this to work. Which means that if you're traveling, you will need to pay for a data roaming plan to make full use of this (or hope to get on free Wi-Fi networks).

Technology has tiptoed into kids' pajamas with onesies covered in QR codes that link to bedtime stories.
"It's time for bed, Tommy. Brush your teeth, put on your PJs, and let's scan you."
Smart PJs, called the world's "first and only interactive pajamas," require downloading a free app for iOS or Android and scanning one of dozens of codes from the Smart PJs with a smartphone or tablet. The device then reads aloud a story, sings a lullaby, or broadcasts pictures of animals or other bedtime-appropriate cuteness. … Read more
