Titan may Produce Glucose Watches Soon
Titan, a TATA company, is in negotiations with Prof Vijay K Varadan, an Indian born US molecular engineer attached to the University of Arkansas, to start production of ``glucose watches''. The talks are in the final stages. The deal is yet to be finalized.
Varadan holds the post of Director of the Centers of Nano-, Micro- and Neuro- Electronics, Sensors and Systems; High Density Electronics Center (HiDEC) and Neurosurgery Research Programme in University of Arkansas. He is with Penn State University, the hotbed of nano-technology.
The watch is likely to have carbon nanotubes at its bottom touching the skin. Connected to an electronic device, the sugar level will be displayed on the watch. In future designs, the company could go in for watches that would administer the drug also.
