New biosensor could monitor glucose levels in tears and sweat

Constantly tracking a person’s glucose levels through their tears or sweat could be one step closer to providing people with diabetes an improved monitoring tool. Researchers report in the journal ACS Nano the development of an ultra-thin, flexible sensor that could be incorporated into contact lenses or on the backs of watches for real-time glucose tracking.

Virtual reality goes magnetic

International research team develops electronic “skin.” The recent success of Pokémon GO made many people very familiar with the concept of “augmented reality”: computer-generated perception blends into the real and virtual worlds. So far, these apps have largely used optical methods for motion detection.
