Google is Using Synthetic Skin For Cancer Reasearch

In addition to making driverless cars and weird headgear, the Google X labs also has a life sciences department where the company is working on an early detection system for cancer.

The Atlantic got a look inside the lab and what it found was that Google is working on an armband that would be able to detect cancer via glowing nanoparticles in the wearers skin. It sounds awesome.

Apple Watch Ships In April – Tim Cook

The Apple Watch will start shipping in April to consumers, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook, who revealed that month as the expected target launch date for the company on Apple’s Q1 2015 earnings call.
