RIM to enter forensic analysis market?

RIM to enter forensic analysis market?

by Nirave18 May 2012

Ever wondered when the world of forensic analysis, i.e. all that fancy stuff from CSI (and other such TV programs) would become more “mobile”? Maybe you haven’t but RIM’s latest patent application should get you talking.

Waterloo based RIM have applied for a patent outlining an “apparatus” connected to a portable electronic device (think phone or tablet) that would shine light on nearby objects, take photographs and display results including potential contamination.

Why have they applied for the patent? It’s either a wacky and ingenious way to get the BlackBerry platform into more government departments or just a wild guess at something that could be used in the future. Either way, it doesn’t look like it’ll be a real tangible service/product soon (or maybe it will, who knows?)
