Samsung has just patented technology which is suggesting that the Korean giant might be on the verge of developing a revolutionary form of security measure. Title as ‘Real Time Authentication Based on Blood Flow Parameters,' the patent was filed way back in July, 2016 but it got approved just recently.


This technology will allow users to authenticate themselves on their smartphones and smartwatches on the basis of their blood flow pattern. On smartphones, it would be detected from the fingers, not unlike how it happens when we use fingerprint scanners, but on smartwatches, the wrist on which the smartwatch is worn will be enough.


Apparently, the arterial conduction paths of each human being are unique and therefore, safety is assured alongside the convenience of not having to use a fingerprint scanner on a smartwatch. To be honest, it sounds wonderful, but that doesn't necessarily mean that this technology will ever see the light of day. We will know soon enough I guess.

I don't know about you but I have always wanted an app that would tell me my blood group and save me the trip to the clinic each time I needed to get some blood tests done. It looks like that is not going to be a problem in the future as Google's acquisition of Senosis Health might allow smartphones to do just that.


The start-up from Seattle has developed a technology which can use a smartphone's camera, flash, accelerometer and microphone to measure hemoglobin in blood. The data collected with the help of this technology can then be used to detect early symptoms of certain types of tumors and cancers, lung diseases, kidney issues and most forms of undetected malnutrition. The application of this technology can change the face of telemedicine forever, especially in remote areas of the world and for patients who can't move about easily.


Although it will probably be a while before the kinks are ironed out and the technology is useable on a large scale, Senosis Health might just have handed Google a very potent tool to make medical science more easily accesible to the US and eventually the world.
