A wearable sensor could soon mean the end of getting jabbed for blood tests. Scientists with the U.S. Air Force are developing a sensor that's like a bandage. The sensor would detect in sweat the same markers that are present in blood.
The Air Force says data retrieved by the sensor could be instantly sent to a computer, or even a smart phone, for analysis.
