Why Google Is Making Human Skin


As per the authentic sources, Google is making the artificial human skin as the part of special research projects which is “wristband that can detect cancer, impending heart attacks and many other diseases”. It is well known fact that Google is trend setter and now this search engine giant is developing the synthetic human skin only to test cancer-detecting nano-particles, which can work with a combination of wristband. Currently, Google is working on many health related and as well as non-health related projects to give better and comfort life to humans.

In the press conference, last year Google has announced that they are working on magnetic nano-particles, which can be the helpful to find the cancer cells in the bloodstream and it will have the ability to report back to a wristband. And in present, Google is working on synthetic skin so that they can develop the technology.

As per one of the employee, “New technology will use the light signals to talk to the wristband and it will provide the superficial veins for the wrist, which will be underside. Shining lights means it will use the skin on the different factors such as; colors and skin types and more, so that team of researchers in Google can built the fake arms with same as original biochemical components and auto-fluorescence.

As per the statement of Andrew Conrad, who is the Head of Google's Life Sciences department, “We all know that cancer cells are floating through our body, which constantly trying to kill us”.

Researchers of Google’s life sciences division are working in Google X laboratories in California to make every possible effort to test the technology. This project will help to theoretically detect the diseases and diagnosis it long before appearance of physical symptoms, in short it will us to reduce the fatality rate of illnesses.

The main idea behind this project will identify slight changes in the person's biochemistry, which could act as the early warning system. Google X lab is dedicated to investigate these potentially revolutionary innovations, so that many ideas can be implemented to make it more effective before being made public.

Google has believe that with this technology it is possible to make the cells light up with magnetic wristband and this magnetic wristband will help to detect the them as soon they will pass through the arm in the bloodstream. But still there is question that “Is people will be comfortable to have monitoring system in their body”.

In the research patients would be swallow a pill¸ which will contain the nano-particles and that will be tailored to attach the makers for different conditions like; chemical levels or cancerous cells linked to disease. Previous researches has included that research in to glucose measuring contact lenses, so that patients with diabetes and a spoon can counteract the tremors that can caused by Parkinson's disease. Google has also some non-health related projects such as; Google Glass, delivery drones, self-driving cars and internet balloons in the stratosphere.

Google Exploring A Way to Search Bodies for Cancer, Heart Disease

Google X life science
US based tech giant Google Inc is exploring with the help of advanced technologies at its disposal to search inside the human body for the early signs of life threatening diseases such as the cancer and heart disease.

Google is working on developing a technology that combines the disease detecting with the use of nanoparticles, which would be sent into the patient’s bloodstream through a swallowed pill an it would emit its finding to a wrist worn sensor.

Google Plunges Into Human Biology With Dynamic Technology

Google is aiming to diagnose cancers, impending heart attacks, stokes as well as other deadly diseases before they could become fatal and beyond treatment. Google is working on the idea of identifying the slight changes in the human biochemistry, which could act as an early warning system. This ambitious work is at its nuptial stage.

It should be noted that the early diagnosis of deadly disease is the key to treating disease in the modern healthcare. Many cancers such as pancreatic could only be detected after they had become untreatable or fatal. There is also a marked differed between the healthy and cancerous tissues. Google ambition is to constantly monitor the blood for extracting and identifying the unique traces of cancer. In turn, this would allow the early diagnosis before any physical symptoms could even appear.

Google X: A Health Research Unit

Google has assembled a Life Sciences team at the special project Google X Lab which are experimenting with the nanoparticles. These nanoparticles would be transmitted in the human bloodstream to hunt for the signs of the medical trouble there report its finding to the sensors, which would be worn by the people. This project is conducted by the Google’s research unit known as Google X, which is dedicated to investigating potentially revolutionary innovations.

This project is also seen as the Google’s latest shift into the medical sector. Earlier it has worked on creating glucose measuring contact lenses for diabetic patients. It has also acquired a start-up, which has developed an innovative spoon to counteract the tremors caused by the Parkinson’s disease.

The Use Of Nanoparticles 

Nanoparticles are expected to have a unique magnetic quality, which would allow them to drawn to the worn devices and counted as well using a non-invasive detection method such as light or radio waves. Google is ultimately going to create a wristband, which could take these readings from the nanoparticles via the light and radio waves, one or more times within 24 hours.

Google even asserts that if its innovative technology gets successful then it could help physicians in detecting the diseases before their deadly onset in the human body.

Google is even planning to license its technology to the companies who are interested in using it specifically for the medically approved diagnostics.

Google had bought stakes in an anti-ageing research company Calico in order to address health and ageing problems by harnessing the advanced technologies.

Google X, a Secret Lab!

Google; the Mountain View giant just not only develops computer and internet solutions. In the shadow, future applications, future energy, future vehicles, artificial intelligence and future technologies etc are studied by laboratory Google X. But recently their secret projects are suddenly revealed to the public. It is very strange but Google seems to play the card of full transparency on its development division.. Google X lab was Founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin in 2010, this complex base is in Mountain View aims to develop the technologies of tomorrow and today we need to recognize that little was known about it until now. As odd as it may seem this department supposedly secret now finds itself in full light. This information were disclosed by some online sources, which tells more that the Mountain View giant has big and does not exclude any project if it is futuristic. Its latest acquisition in progress is also Makani Power. A startup that develops wind turbines mounted on drones and connected to the ground like kites. Eric Teller, the current director of Google X Lab, hopes the takeover lead to pioneering technology. As Larry Page said during the last conference Google I / O, Google develops IT solutions, but her current work allow it to connect with the real world. Regarding the acquisition of Makani Power no amount has been disclosed at this time, but in terms of the development possibilities are endless. "We look forward to working with our new colleagues at Google X for the turbine airborne something profitable," says Makani Power on its website. This may sound crazy, but "if you do not take your chance, no progress is made" believes Damon Vander Lind, chief engineer of the project. Such work on wind energy in the future could compete with fossil fuels, and especially to be a huge commercial success for Google. A niche where we do not necessarily expected. Constantly looking to the future, the main objective of Google is the same as its competitors in advance. How and in what direction? Nobody really knows, but the company's claim to want to save the future world; From all future problem of humanity, “we will find a solution and we will correct it," said the director of Google X Lab. Business Week says that since its inception, the lab seeks to impose itself as the heir of classical centers such as Bletchley Park, to whom we owe the modern cryptography, or the Manhattan Project, which created the first atomic bomb.

Today, companies withdraw from the research and prefer to turn to the side of innovation startups. By revealing its secret projects, Google seems to play cards on the table and show that it takes advantage of the situation to try to help. But then, the space elevator, teleportation ... It's the public fantasize and it stops there. Suddenly raise the veil on its secret department does not hide the fact that the company operates like any other. The purchase of small businesses is the best way to integrate new skills to innovate and expand its market by diversifying. For example Android, one of the biggest successes of Google, which were already existed at the time of the creation of Google X. The mobile OS is not born from a brainstorming session in Mountain View. Many people forget. This mobile operating now present on 75% of Smartphones worldwide system was originally developed by a startup acquired in 2005. Not sure today the acquisition of high-tech kites Makani Power works as well. Designed by Google and straight out of the X Lab, there is also the Google Glass. According to optimistic forecasts Business Insider Intelligence, 21 million pairs could be sold annually by 2018. If the price is around $ 500, this would be a market for Google to $ 10.5 billion over the next five years. But this is debatable. Currently, the geeks only seem to be really ready to wear. Such success will obviously depend on the interest of developers and especially the social integration of the product. Constantly be equipped with a camera that is not to the liking of everyone. Besides increased, signed a future innovations could be the reality namely Google Car.

 Testing vehicles already circulating throughout the United States and Director of Special Projects, Sergey Brin, has predicted that the unmanned autonomous cars will be on the market by 2017. "The world is no longer limited by IQ We are all limited by the bravery and creativity," said Eric Teller at a conference South by Southwest festival in Austin. A month ago, Eric Schmidt has surprised many by announcing that "by the end of the decade, everyone on Earth is connected to the Internet." Knowing that today 40% of the planet is connected to the Internet, the task seems very odd, but it may possible and Google has the skill to do it. To solve this problem, Google X Lab proposes to set up broadband transmitters on balloons sent at high altitude. Will keep for some time to head in the clouds. Seriously, all this comes at a cost! Who said research tells resources, and Google will give here a cold sweat to its investors. Mountain View can certainly afford such follies. For now, Google continues this and wants to show they like risk. Eric Teller believes that Google X Lab should not be judged solely on its financial performance, but also on the progress it brings. "We're still in our adolescence," he says. According to him, the research center will study two or three new projects per year. Google somehow becomes the Microsoft of the 2010s. With futuristic innovations in everything goes, the public will quickly dream. But in the real world, the more difficult will obviously sell these inventions and especially to get to the sale. While at Google X Lab are the open side research and development, it is much more difficult to obtain information on the work of Apple Technologies division led by Bob Mansfield. The iWatch is obviously one of great expectations, but Apple seems otherwise master its internal circuitry. Two modes of management opposed. On one side the transparency of Google, where one of the founders directs all, manages records and left a colleague freely invent the future. The other, a more decentralized method work and much less exposed. Apple is more discreet coordinating its research around small teams to think about the future of computing. Beyond imagination, Google remains to be seen which of the two techniques will be most productive.
