Apple Hiring More Medical Sensor Experts

18 January 2014


Dougherty’s work at Sano Intelligence is incredibly interesting in light of Apple’s work on wearable devices, and it seems likely that she will bring this expertise from Sano over to Apple. While Sano Intelligence has yet to launch their product, it has been profiled by both The New York Times and Fast Company. The latter profile shares many details about the product: it is a small, painless patch that can work on the arm and uses needle-less technologies to read and analyze a user’s blood.

Having something that can analyse blood without cutting into the skin is a hard concept to wrap my head around. Having that strand of biological analysis in a smartwatch is equally difficult to visualise. How would it be marketed for one thing?
