    the color changing pacifier is a brilliant concept – if only we can figure out how to do it. If my dog can tell when I’m having low blood sugar, there should be a way, non-invasively to figure it out.

    great ideas Wow – what a great contest you ran

    Just a heads up – that tool for calculating insulin dosages that we developed is now out of prototype and up and running!

    The “diabetes digital cloud” isn’t really creative, but it is by far the most important concept I’ve seen so far from this year’s contest. It’s really not very complicated either, relative to most of the other products that would require physical product development, FDA approval, etc.

    I simply want to easily export my data from my BG monitor into an open database on my computer. Even a spreadsheet would be fine. As suggested in the demo, a web site would be fine. From there my data would be available for any manipulation or visualization. Maybe I need to reformat my data so that my doctor can process it more easily? Maybe I want to build something in Google Charts to look at my BG levels from many different angles. I can’t do either of those things with any of the existing software I’ve tried. Animas has probably the best solution I’ve seen, but its still not open. All we need is an export button and we’d be in business…

    The cloud would work great with your winner, the iPhone glucose sensor. It frees data from the meter and makes it easily available to patients, parents, and health care professionals. I would like to see what a data visualization expert would do with this data. An open API would allow innovation in data display, charts, graphs (think Charmr) that we are not seeing from the meter companies. I hope they are listening!
