A team of researchers at UCLA has transformed Google Glass into a powerful, wearable medical testing laboratory. Aydogan Ozcan and his team developed an application that reads dozens of different types of diagnostic tests for malaria, prostate cancer and HIV, to name a few. Glass uploads the results to secure servers and provides anonymous data to epidemiologists. In the American Chemical Society’s (ACS’) newest Breakthrough Science video, Ozcan demonstrates how the app works, and explains the broad impact it could have on medicine.
