Looking into next year, we can expect to see the arrival of the BG Star, a blood test meter that actually works with your iPhone. The BG (as in ‘blood glucose’) Star plugs into the bottom of your iPhone. You use this part to do your test, but all the results are stored in your phone and can be accessed via software, also on your phone. In glorious technicolour, you can review your readings while sitting on a train, or waiting for a friend in a café just by opening the app and scrolling through. Should be with us in January 2011.
