open challenge to nanfluidics/biometrics/adaptive controls engineers out there

Design a chip that…

  1. Can be implanted in a subcutaneous blood vessel.
  2. Can accurately measure blood glucose with a sampling frequency of once per minute or better.
  3. Gets the power it needs to perform measurements from motion (e.g., of the arm in which it is implanted) .
  4. Has a 5+ year lifetime.
  5. Transmits its readings to a watch-sized device near the implant site.
  6. Interfaces, via the watch and an adaptive control law, with an insulin infusion pump to maintain blood glucose at 100 mg/dL, given an estimate of carbohydrate intake supplied via the watch or pump UI.

And then sign me up for a human trial.  Thanks.
