Wearable Lab on Body

A lab on a chip is a device that integrates laboratory functions on a single integrated machine to achieve diagnostic automation or high-throughput screening. In the future, we envision that this technology would be integrated with the human body to sense biological signals related to health conditions and diseases down to the molecular level. We present a prototype of "wearable lab on body,” a platform for active continuous monitoring of human biomarkers from the biological fluid. Our platform contains both digital sensors for activity recognition, as well as an automated system for continuous sampling of biomarkers from saliva by leveraging already existing paper-based biochemical sensors. The platform could aid with longitudinal studies of biomarkers and early diagnosis of diseases.
MIT Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces group creates wearable systems and interfaces for cognitive enhancement. Our designs enhance cognitive ability by teaching users to exploit and develop the untapped powers of their minds and by seamlessly supplementing users' natural cognitive abilities. Our work is highly interdisciplinary and combines insights and methods from human computer interaction, body sensor technologies, machine learning, brain computer interfaces, psychology, and neuroscience to create new opportunities for studying and intervening in human psychology in-the-wild.
