I recently had a dream that I was attending the ‘Design of Medical Devices‘ conference at the University of Minnesota. I had no idea such a thing existed until somebody signed me up to their mailing list. I was hoping for a free invitation, but nothing ever came of it. Must have been someone’s idea of advertising.
In my dream, I was sitting at a table with a number of other people, all of us listening to presentations. One guy had designed a wireless blood sugar interest monitor. That’s right, interest. As in, how interested are you with your current blood sugar?
It looked just like a wireless router, hanging high on the wall just above a light, and it was giving this guy a readout of everyone at the table.
0% interested, 0.01% interested, 0% interested, then he got to me. 28% interested. Almost a third of my active brainpower was being consumed just worrying about my blood sugar.
I know it was just a dream, but I’d say there’s a pretty good slice of reality in there somewhere.
