When I originally heard about the Apple Watch I was hoping for the impossible … a device that would read my blood glucose levels in real time, all the time!
We’re not there yet but perhaps Google is ready to help.
Check out this Forbes article, Google Reveals Gigantic Ambitions to Fight Cancer, Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Heart Problems:
Google’s new health unit was born directly from the company’s ongoing work on smart contact lenses, which was described by Brin in a recent Google+ post as an “immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health”.
It is just the start of Google’s vision to transform the way scientists detect, prevent and manage disease, including heart health, and potentially attempt to increase the length and quality of people’s lives with its Calico business.
Brin said he was “delighted” at the smart contact lens project’s progress, but added that he “could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into: a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.”
Maybe along with Gmail’s “out of storage” alerts I’ll soon get cortisol levels with emoticons 🙂
