The year is 2045, and virtual reality is everywhere. People don headsets to log in to a virtual world called “Oasis”. Oasis provides an escape from reality, which can be in the form of a virtual vacation to an exotic place, a cyber casino the size of a planet, or any virtual game imaginable. This is the setting of the award-winning book, Ready Player One, which is now adapted for screenplay by Steven Spielberg. The story follows Wade Watts under the alias Parzival as he plays the game set up by the creator of Oasis before he died. The objective of the game is to solve clues and gain keys to ultimately win the rights to Oasis. Whoever gets Oasis gets control of the whole world. With the help of his cyber friends, Art3mis, Aech, Daito and Sho, they solve the clues together while fighting the behemoth company, IOI, for Oasis.

We present in this analysis a comparison between two patents issued to Google and Amazon Technologies, Inc. that relate to non-contact systems and methods for physiological parameter (e.g., heart rate) measurement.

Part of what makes the healthcare industry massive and daunting from a business standpoint is the industry stakeholders’ being not just your typical buyer-seller-supplier combo. The several enormous healthcare industry segments include patients, providers (e.g., hospitals, labs), prescribers (e.g., physicians, clinics and pharmacy clinics), pharmacy, pharmaceutical and medical equipment manufacturers, regulators, and payers (e.g., Medicare and insurance companies). Several of these segments represent separate immense industries on their own (e.g., drug, insurance, and medical device industries). On top of this, federal and state laws and regulations impose strict requirements regarding what can be sold, how products are to be evaluated, who is going to pay for which services, who is eligible for which benefits, who can practice where, etc.
Magic Leap, after much hoopla and protracted anticipation that later turned into doubts for some, has finally publicly introduced what appeared to be its first commercial product prototype last Dec. 20, 2017. Its CEO and founder, Rony Abovitz, refused to specify a release date or price, but he said the first product version will be available this year.

These are heady times. The recent years have been very productive in terms of scientific and technological advance. After so many decades, we’re no longer talking about the ascendance or preeminence of just one field such as biology, physics, chemistry, computer science, or engineering. Everything is now more tightly interwoven and interdependent. An advance in one field is almost certain to push other fields forward in significant ways.
