Google is Patenting a Watch That Sucks Your Blood
In their constant quest to take the world of technology and its implementation as far as possible, Google is now going to be making devices that work with your blood.
This is a really interesting concept, and is a potentially an incredibly significant health-oriented breakthrough; the technological arms race Google and Apple seem to have going is leading tech and innovation into some very interesting places.
Gizmodo has the whole story about the patent that Google has just filed for a watch that actually analyzes your blood--if you want the specifics and the details as they're available, you can check them out here.
Now, because no press releases or anything of the sort have been released just yet, it's impossible to know for sure what the plans for implementation are. But obviously the blood is an important aspect of the human existence and if casual technology allows the average person to monitor efficiently and safely the condition of his or her blood, this could be a significantly useful tool for people who suffer from ailments like diabetes, for people curious about studying nutrition, and for performance athletes to determine just what's going on inside of their bodies.
On the other hand, it's a watch that sucks your blood, which will undoubtedly make some consumers a little bit apprehensive.
