Australian designer Sam Whipp is behind Gluco diabetes management, a conceptual device designed to make it easier to monitor glucose levels. The device resembles a smartphone in both its looks and functionality. An upward sliding motion reveals the lancet and another upwards sliding motion shows the test results.
The best thing about Gluco diabetes management is that it shares the results of tests with your smartphone using Bluetooth. In addition to sharing test info with your phone, Gluco can also provide advice on carbohydrate intake and medication dosage. Smartphones can do just about everything these days, so it only makes sense that designers are creating future medical devices that are compatible with mobile phones. Don't get your hopes up, but trips to the doctor's office may become a thing of the past.
