While, the search engine giant Google is working on a lot of projects this year including Google Fiber, Google Wave, Driverless car and more, simultaneously the company has also filed a patent that should put an end to the blood test pain we all have gone through.
Yes, latest news is in that Larry Page's company has filed a new patent for a "needle free blood drawing system," which could use either wearable or a hand-held device (maybe smartphone) to take blood samples from the patient's body.
How will it work?
Reportedly, the device will send a pulse of gas into a barrel with a micro particle that will penetrate through or puncture your skin without any needle to draw a small drop of blood. Once the blood will come out, it will extract via negative pressure barrel.
As per the patent, it says, "Such an application might be used to draw a small amount of blood, for example, for a glucose test."

Also, Google suggests that the device could even replace the glucose tester used by diabetic patients in the form of wearables resembling a smartwatch.
Moreover, Google filed this patent last year on May 28th and it finally got an approval on December 3rd, 2015. However, this doesn't mean the wearable device would see the day of light.
Apart from this, Google is also said to be working on smart contact lenses in association with Novartis, which will be used to measure blood sugar levels through tears. Additionally, it is also said to be connecting cloud connected sensor that could monitor your glucose levels.
