Each week PSFK features many new and innovative apps. To give the best their due, we’ve compiled a roundup of the most interesting and creative apps written about on the site last week:

Is Your Environment Making You Sick?

A new app, ‘My Place History’ helps uses track the various toxins they may have been exposed to over the course of their lives which could be a valuable asset for their medical history.

Turn Your iPhone Into A Mini Arcade

Arcadie for iPhone is a retro cover that transforms the screen of your device into a mini arcade. You slide your iPhone into the rear of the Arcadie, which clicks closed, and then you’re ready to play one of the six free games using the 8-way joystick and A & B buttons.

Control Video Games With Your Mind

Companies like NeuroSky and Emotiv Systems are developing consumer-ready products that translate brain activity into on-screen activity. Expected to start at around $130, such devices pick up the electrical signals zipping around your brain and send the information to a connected smartphone or other input device.

Cure Acne With A Smartphone

Fujitsu Laboratories has announced a new app that uses a smartphone camera to measure a person’s skin condition. It tracks acne, blemishes, skin tone, and pore size, and can be used to monitor the health of facial skin and see how it reacts to certain skin care products.

Unlock All Of Your Passwords Just By Standing Next To Your Computer

Ogilvy Paris has developed a new app inspired by Ford’s key-free technology for unlocking and locking cars. ‘KeyFree Login‘ logs you in to all of your internet accounts (Facebook, Twitter, email, etc) by unlocking your passwords when your mobile device is close to your computer. When you move away, it locks them again by logging you out.
