Craig Allen Keefner's curator insight, March 20, 11:17 AM
  • Patent details a wearable that could target substances in a wearer's blood
  • This substances could be proteins linked with Parkinson's, or cancer cells
  • It would then 'modify or destroy' targets by transmitting energy into blood
  • This could include infrared signals, a radio-frequency or acoustic pulse
  • Scientists in the life sciences division of Google X laboratories are using human skin in their research to develop the wristband
  • Wristband could also work with pills that cause unhealthy cells to light up 
Courtney Bonner's curator insight, March 25, 12:56 PM

If this wristband ends up being approved by the FDA, it could be a major change for the medical field. Cancer is obviously devastating and ruins too many lives worldwide, so it would be awesome to see this wristband save the world.

If Twitter fails to fix its “noise” problem, it doesn’t face a prosperous future — that’s according to entrepreneur and early Twitter investor Gary Vaynerchuk.

Speaking at the Guardian Changing Media Summit in London today, the “storytelling entrepreneur, video blogger, self-trained social media expert and best-selling author” talked at length about how social media has changed brand-building in the digital age. Vaynerchuk touched on a number of related topics, but it was perhaps the vehemence of his Twitter views that stood out.
