One of the future trends I’ve written about has to do with sensors that will be implanted in the body. A recent article in phys.org reports on how scientists have engineered a protein that changes shape when it attaches to glucose. Incorporated into an implantable device, the protein could be used to monitor blood glucose continuously.
As technology develops, we will be seeing more and more sensing and monitoring devices that are implanted into our bodies. The age of bionics is about to take off.
