 Google Makes Fake Skin to Test Cancer-Detecting Nanoparticles

Google employee's mentioned in a video that their team will be using light signals to talk to a smart wristband through the superficial veins on the underside of the wrist.

It was earlier reported that Google was working on magnetic nanoparticles that would find out cancer cells in the bloodstream and will be reported in a smart wristband.

Andrew Conrad, the head of Google's Life Sciences department said that having cancer cells floating through the body that are constantly trying to kill people was way weirder in response to the reviews, which state that having nanoparticles in the body was odd.
