Kernel-of-Life-by-Fuseproject_dezeen_ss_1It’s true we’ve featured a slew of projects headed up by Yves Behar on this site (see Soda Stream Bottle, XO Tablet; Jawbone Wristband; Whole World Water bottle), but it’s only because we admire his belief in design’s ability to change the world. To that end, Behar’s Fuse Project has just unveiled Kernel of Life, a wearable medical device aimed at populations where doctors are in short supply.

The device allows the user to test his or her own saliva, urine or blood for signs of certain diseases, specifically malaria and other chronic illnesses, and then transmit the results via a smart phone app to the nearest doctor. Still in concept stage, Kernel of Life, alas, is too expensive to be realized just now, but Fuse Project believes it could be realized in 5 to 10 years. We can only hope they’re being unnecessarily pessimistic.
