coljac writes "Wired have posted this article about the Health Special Interest Group gathering held by MIT's Media Lab. The article showcases some recent advances, describes the 'wish lists' of the participants, and focusses on the move to home-based health care." An excerpt: "Perhaps the most far-reaching developments on display were found in the interface between wireless communications, biological sensors and nanotechnology [emphasis added]. The Lab's new recruit, Scott Manalis, now leads the nanoscale sensing vanguard — moving toward remote microscopic laboratories that conduct body chemistry and genetic tests from anywhere, including inside a person's body."
