Google, Magnetic Pills and Cancer

Watched an in depth tv special on this. Boggles the mind. I understand now why my grandson plans a career in microbiology.

Google magnetic pills seek to search and destroy cancer

It seems that the potential goes far beyond cancer and disease and into genetics.

New stuff beyond driverless cars and Google glass.. look for glucose measuring eyeglasses, and project Loon...http://www.google.com/loon/where/

What next?

Whole organ regeneration from your own cells.
Tengion : Regenerative Medicine Brought to Life

Life extension in general (google funded)
Calico (company) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Still very early days, but slowly we are taking steps to biological immortality. Not counting on it in in my lifetime though (and I'm 34).

Unless Google is also developing a warp drive and/or terraforming technology I find the implications of biological immortality most distressing...
