Google invented this weird-looking gadget to collect people’s medical info

Verily_croppedThe life sciences company started by Google (now part of Alphabet) has created a special gadget to collect and sync medical information for people participating in clinical studies.

The so-called “Connectivity Bridge” was revealed in FCC filings on Tuesday, providing an early glimpse into the mix of innovative hardware and big data analysis that the company is developing to gain a foothold in the competitive healthcare business.

The connectivity bridge, which looks a little bit like a snorkel mask, appears to be designed to serve as a wireless hub that can be installed in medical facilities or in homes, so that patient data collected with various sensors can quickly be uploaded to the cloud for analysis.
