Absolutely freaking brilliant.  I want to meet this guy.  Crap.  I should have thought of this.

GlucoBoy brings blood sugar monitoring to GameBoy

glucoboyGuidance Interactive have created GlucoBoy, an attachment for the Nintendo GameBoy that monitors blood sugar levels.  Creator Paul Wessel noticed that his son, who was diagnosed with diabetes at age 3, carried his GameBoy everywhere.  Wessel figured, hey - why not just turn the thing into a blood sugar monitor?  He is also developing games that work with the GlucoBoy beyond the standard testing. [Engadget]

What a great idea. Appropriate technology at it's best. If only they could make one that worked with your Crackberry. :)

I found you via Amy. I have definitely bookmarked you and I'll be adding you to my blogroll next time I log in there. I've also passed your link to my parents list. Glad you're around and one of these days, my son may pick your brain extensively. Xx Martha (Mom to 8-year-old with D, dxed in July 2004... come visit)
