FDA Slaps Personal Genomics Startup 23andMe With Stiff Warning

FDA Slaps Personal Genomics Startup 23andMe With Stiff Warning | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Earlier today, the FDA released a letter it sent last Friday to personal genomics startup 23andMe. 

The warning letter served notice to the company — and the broader digital health startup community — that the power of the FDA is not something to be taken lightly.

 

Failure to take adequate corrective action may result in regulatory action being initiated by the Food and Drug Administration without further notice. These actions include, but are not limited to, seizure, injunction, and civil money penalties. James L. Woods — Deputy Director, Patient Safety and Product Quality, Food and Drug Administration

 

It’s a strongly worded warning against the high-profile personal genomics startup. Founded in 2006, the company has raised over $160 million through some leading Venture Capitalists including New Enterprise Associates, Mohr Davidow, Google Ventures — and Google Co-Founder himself — Sergey Brin. 

Olivier Janin's insight:

Lots of coverage and reactions about this news.  They underline how much the access to the datas and even more to analysis of personal genomics is a key issue for the Regulation Authorities. I personally think that bright Regulation is a key to develop this business with the individual privacy protection. 

 

On this topic, read also these reactions and info :

Somehow, Pebble is making a better smartwatch than gadget giants like Samsung and Sony | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Samsung is a multibillion company with 425,000 employees and a massive supply chain. Pebble is 40-strong and fueled by $10 million in Kickstarter money.

So you might be surprised at which one is making the better smartwatch. On Wednesday, Pebble unveiled the latest steps in its effort to take over your wrist. It has a new, more powerful developer kit, and it finally supports all of the notifications coming out of iOS. Oh, and it also has companies like Foursquare, Yelp, and GoPro making native apps for the device.

Glass Development Kit Sneak Peek

In this video Timothy Jordan gives developers a sneak peek of the brand new Glass Developer Kit.

 

“Unlike Google Mirror API, the interface that Glass developers have been using up to now, the GDK will allow for offline Glassware functionality, real-time user response and ‘deeper access to hardware, such as the accelerometer and the GPS.’ Jordan went on to demonstrate each of these additions via specific apps that take advantage of the GDK’s abilities,”

Nike’s Updated FuelBand: Better Algorithm, Worse UX

Nike’s Updated FuelBand: Better Algorithm, Worse UX | UX-UI-Wearable-Tech for Enhanced Human | Scoop.it

Over a year after Nike broke ground with their dead-simple FuelBand it's issued a second-generation model that tasks the user with correcting its Shortcomings.

(...)

The most standout new feature in the FuelBand SE canon is how it shifts the responsibility on users to record certain activities that it measured with less than perfect accuracy before. Take yoga, for example: Once an Ashtanga class is over, you’re now able to dial into the app and pinpoint exactly how much you exerted yourself during class, on a scale of low to medium to high intensity. From there, your FuelBand will add points.

The key here is that the FuelBand SE lets you fine-tune the intensity of the class, instead of the device calculating points for you. Given Nike’s industry-leading position in the wearable tech space, this self-reporting requirement reads like a major departure from the original design intention of a carefully streamlined user experience.
