The Google X team is known for its secrecy, working on moonshot ideas like quantum computing and balloon-powered wireless signals, but a new report may have tipped their hand. Bloomberg is reporting a meeting between the FDAs medical device team and three members of Googles secretive research team. The FDA staffers involved reportedly specialize in devices targeting the eyes and heart, while one of the Google X team members, Brian Otis, holds a patent on a wireless contact-lens biosensor. The meeting was classified in the FDAs public calendar as a meet and greet, so its unlikely there was a specific application being discussed, but the meeting offers a surprising window into the companys plans, and displays a new willingness to work with regulators as Google expands into the medical field.
