    This technology has helped scientists to experiment on tiny models of human organs but they require near-constant monitoring.

    According to a new study, published in Scientific Reports, researchers have developed software and hardware that is allowing them to go about their days while the high-tech glasses kept watch on their experiments.

    With the Glass, the team was able to control livers and hearts on a chip remotely, dosing out pharmaceutical compounds by using valves. The authors said that the software might be particularly useful for doctors or researchers running risky experiments, such as those involving highly infectious bacteria or radioactive materials, by allowing them to keep a safe distance.
