"At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier in January, we ran into Gecko Health Innovations, a young startup hoping to ease the difficulty of managing children's asthma with a simple, but brilliant, gadget. It's called the GeckoCap, and it's a small, Bluetooth-enabled rubber accessory that you can place atop your child's inhaler. The cap contains a tiny, colored LED light that starts flashing when it's time for your child to use the inhaler, and that will not stop until he or she does."
