From The News Wire: RDIF, Non Invasive, Not Tested on People, BG Metering

Well it sounds like they just started to me but what to I know? The headline is "Researchers Finish Work on Needle-free Glucose Tester"

The idea is a skin patch that talks to you cell phobe via RDIF

Developed by Gentag, Georgetown University and SAIC, the system uses a non-invasive skin patch to measure a patient's glucose level, and an RFID-enabled cell phone to receive that data.

Sept. 30, 2008—A team consisting of Georgetown University's Georgetown Advanced Electronics Laboratory (GAEL) researchers, Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), and Gentag, has finished development on a glucose measuring system that, once commercially available, would allow diabetics to monitor their glucose levels electronically—using an RFID-enabled cell phone—without needing to prick their fingers.
