Google’s new life science project: Body parts

A tiny arm? A second head? No, friend, meet the Flange.

Forget about the diabetes-monitoring contact lens. Google’s biggest life science  project has finally been revealed: they are building you a new body part.

Why? So you can add at least $1,500 worth of Google products to your body.

That delicious tidbit was courtesy of The Onion, everyone’s favorite satirical news site, which unveiled the new body part: The Flange. It’s a new synthetic skin appendage that fits between shoulder blades delivering the more body surface area for Google to attach its products.

Listen closely, because Google tips its hands to other next-generation healthcare products: a device that tracks how often you sleep on your stomach (or something).
