Largest IT tech Giant company, Microsoft is going to develop the next version of its smart glasses, which is known by the name as Glabella, that can work as a cuff-less, wearable and unobtrusive blood pressure measuring device, according to a new report which has revealed.
The device is also going to be come up with the some of the more additional features which include the optical sensors, processing, storage, and communication components, all integrated into the frame to passively collect physiological data about the user without even having any type of interaction, according to a paper published in Proceedings of the ACM Journal of Interactive, Mobile, Wearable, and Ubiquitous Technologies.
A pulse transit time of a person which is the time delay following each heartbeat as the pressure wave travels between two arterial sites — provides an indirect measure of blood pressure, according to a report which has been first reported by the IEEE Spectrum. Although the glasses works fine at the time of test run, they are not yet ready to hit the store shelves as the Microsoft researchers plan to evaluate the Glabella glasses in a clinical setting.
The team is also developing a next version of the device to make it more power efficient and effective while making the frame smaller, according to a report.
Currently, a small chargeable coin battery keeps the device running. One of the main goal is to shrink the device so that it could become a clip-on that works with anyone’s regular glasses, the report added.
