With hundreds of applications promising everything from neat party tricks to keen organization, the iPhone’s usefulness may have finally outdone itself!

While the upcoming Gyromaniac iPhone application doesn’t really provide a colonoscopy (thankfully), it is a potentially invaluable tool for teaching gastroenterologists and medical students about performing colonoscopies,, and about the various pathologies they may encounter on the monitor.

What else is on the horizon for colon-conscious iPhone users?  Rumour has it that Subversus Interactive developer Vishal Srivastava is working on a game that allows you to use the latest iPhone’s gyroscope to manipulate your way through a human colon and other interesting interiors.

Can you think of any ways we could use this kind of technology for the good of patients and caregivers?  We would love to hear your suggestions!
