Good question indeed mate. I think in most cases people are more scared to live and enjoy their lives due to many reasons.

>>So Google is going to become a medical device manufacturer<<

That's one area of application difficult to get on well with. Has Google really done much in medical space unlike other areas? I think regulation and policy to ensure standardization are an important factors in medical devices, and are highly necessary primarily because of counterfiet components/parts.

Electronics and software seems to find more ways to integrate into humans. This remind of the latest movie Transcendence :-)

@prabhakar, i think there is some danger of self diagnosis unless the relationship between doctor and patient changes. In the new world, there will have to be collaboration where the patient  is considered a good source of data for the doctor and the patient takes responsability for clearly articulating what's going on and reporting and going to the doctor,e tc.

Any wearbale that is targeted at health monitoring is good for the society in my opinion. 

But any medical device whether it is a monitoring device or a diagnostic device sgould have some kind of certification about its accuracy from the health authorities.

 

The danger of wearing such devices is that people will start making their own diagnostics which may sometimes contradict with what the doctor or the results of the pathogy lab say and that may lead to conflcit situations.
