Google Glass Monitors Human Organs – What Should We Expect Next?

Google Glass Human Organs

It seems that some scientists have developed a system which allows them to use the Google Glass device in order to remotely monitor and control experiments on tiny human organs.

In concordance with the researchers, including the ones from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard University, this new system will be very useful for scientists that run risky experiments, especially for the experiments that involve highly radioactive materials or infectious bacteria, by allowing them to stay at a safe distance.

The researchers have developed an integral set of firmware, software, hardware and Glassware which enables wireless transmission of sensor data onto the Google Glass, which allows them to get real-time-analysis and visualization via the headset. In addition, the platform also allows the users to even control outputs entered via the Glass and achieve bi-directional Glass-device interface.

Organs on chips are offering a way to experiment on tiny models of human organs; however, they need near-constant monitoring. With other words, the new hardware and software will allow the scientists to not constantly monitor the organs, as the high-tech glasses will assist them in their experiments.

It is good to know that the scientists are able to remotely control hearts and livers on a chip, by dosing out pharmaceutical compounds via the valves that are controlled by Glass. With this device, they are able to monitor physiological and physical parameters such as morphology, pH and more.

As you can see, Google Glass is a very powerful device, which allows scientists to do their job with ease. Currently, the device is also being used by car manufacturers and people from all kinds of industries. With other words, it’s just a matter of time until new projects will be “helped” by this headset.
