Tooth-Mounted Sensor Tracks What You Eat

We are well into March and I wanted to share what might be the next "wearable" to come to the market. This sensor that is placed on a tooth surface can help track what we consume daily. Check out the article here. Pretty neat stuff!
Monitoring in real time what happens in and around our bodies can be invaluable in the context of health care or clinical studies, but not so easy to do. That could soon change thanks to new, miniaturized sensors developed by researchers at the Tufts University School of Engineering that, when mounted directly on a tooth and communicating wirelessly with a mobile device, can transmit information on glucose, salt and alcohol intake. In research to be published soon in the journal Advanced Materials, researchers note that future adaptations of these sensors could enable the detection and recording of a wide range of nutrients, chemicals and physiological states.
Happy Near Miss Day,
