Google has filed a new patent for a wearable device from its semi-secret Google X research lab in California that can detect and destroy the painted cells. It is described a Calico developed device that can automatically modify or destroy one or more targets in the blood that have an adverse health effect.

These could include proteins, enzymes, cells, hormones or other molecules that may affect health when present in blood. The wearable can modify or destroy the cells by transmitting energy into blood vessels, this could be by radio frequency pulse, time-varying magnetic field, acoustic pulse or infrared or visible light signal.

The energy provokes a physical or chemical change in the targets to fight illness, including cancer. Besides these, Google also believes that the device could also help Parkinson’s patients, as certain proteins have been noted as a partial cause of the disease. If the wearable could destroy these proteins, disease progression might be slowed.

Basically the device is a wearable that can be worn on the wrist, like a fitness band or a smart-watch and it has the capabilities to help the patients to get rid of that cancer. However, it remains to be seen if Google would ever create such a device and it is an intriguing idea and does sound like it has a lot of potential.
