GlucoBoy available in Australia - other areas may come soon

Here is a nifty idea to help diabetic kids pay attention their blood sugar levels. The game, called GlucoBoy, is a game for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance that rewards kids for timely monitoring of their blood sugar levels. The game cartridge functions with or without the Game Boy as a glucometer, but plugging it into the Game Boy Advance means kids can earn points for timely monitoring and for keeping their levels within healthy limits.

Points are scored and acquiring points unlocks game on the cartridge. A great idea to get kids more involved in their own health. Hopefully it will be available everywhere soon.
