Fun with Blood Sugar

Tthe Glucoboy is a game cartridge that doubles as a blood glucose testing device for child diabetics. One need only prick one’s finger and provide the Glucoboy with a fresh blood sample to play the game. According to the Glucoboy site, “blood glucose test results are converted into Glucose Reward Points (GRPs) that can be used to unlock games, or converted to in game currency.”  So the more you bleed, the more you win.  Sounds like fun — I just hope they don’t combine it with Pokémon. “Gotta catch ’em all” indeed.
