Blood-Sucking Glucose Monitors
Vampire Winny is a Friendly Fiend Who Feeds On Your Healthy Routine

Although the fearsome blood-sucking characters of folklore do not typically make people feel warm and fuzzy inside, the prospect of piercing one’s skin on a regular basis is not particularly pleasant either. In Vampire Winny, however, one designer has reworked the image of the creature so that she can take up the task of acquiring plasma samples in a way that’s less scary than typical glucose monitors.

Intended for kids, Diana Dumitrescu’s concept is cute and approachable and makes the process of testing oneself logical and interactive. Synced with a smartphone app, Vampire Winny has a virtual counterpart who requires constant feeding. The user is reminded when deposits must be made for the health of the fanged cartoon character, encouraging the child to take regular samples by pricking his finger in the mouth of the little monster.
