The main problem with Google Glass is that you have to talk to your glasses. Think about that. I still know people who have a problem with speaking into their cell phones. Scratch that, I know people who have a problem speaking to people. Talking to your gadgets is most certainly the least efficient way of controlling them and I can’t for the life of me figure out why this is being forced on us. Futuristic gadgets are supposed to make us feel like superheroes, not look like idiots.
Remedying this, a team at University of Washington lead by Samuel Achilefu have created glasses to be worn by oncology surgeons which turns cancerous cells blue. That is an incredible superpower which along with canine cancer detection gives us a great new future in detecting and treating cancer. Yes, dogs can smell cancer and surgeons can wear glasses to turn cancerous cells blue. We’re one dog-to-human translator away from the most realistic version of the X-Men ever.
The technology will help surgeons to clear out more cancerous cells during the first surgery which will minimize the chances of patients having to return for surgery a second time. While this is an incredible advance, the technology needs further testing and improvement. Still, it was successfully tested on Monday. Considering we all know someone who has been affected by cancer, this is pretty awesome news. Bring on the dog-to-human translator. [Source]
