Google Hearts Diabetics

Google has filed a patent for a needle-free blood draw system, and while a patent does not equal a future product, it ties in with a couple of other items that could benefit diabetics. 
The company is already working on two devices designed to help diabetics monitor their glucose levels: smart contact lenses and a bandage-sized, cloud-connected sensor to help people monitor their glucose levels. If these projects are successful — and if they gain FDA clearance — that could mean big business for Google; about 29 million people in the US have diabetes.
