A small drop of blood is dropped into a small receptable where nanostrips and reagents react to the blood's contents. The whole cocktail goes throug a spiral micro-mixer and is streamed past lasers to come up with a diagnosis. There's also a vital patch that delivers results via Bluetooth.
Lastly, given iDevices initial focus on Bluetooth, one has to wonder if the short range wireless technology will be central to the new platform. As I’ve written before, Bluetooth is certainly gaining steam as a smart home technology, and a HomeKit powered system could certainly add to the momentum.
The internet of things doesn’t need proprietary software and M2M platforms, it needs developers. The key isn’t the things, but the data these things generate and the applications that will be built on top of them.

THE Beacons are here. And they might not be all bad.
Beacons, tiny low-powered radio transmitters that send signals to phones just feet away, have quickly become a new front in the advertising industry's chase to find you whenever, and exactly whereever, you are.
