Google's X team meets with US regulators who oversee medical devices

Is Google preparing to enter the operating room? Could we expect more doctors with Glass?

The FDA classified the meeting with the Google X team as a "meet and greet," so we probably won't know what they actually talked about. We do have something to take away from this: Google met with the FDA, which would lead us to believe the Mountain View-based search giant is looking to move into the medical field, with Glass maybe?
