In brief: Artificial pancreas

The artificial pancreas is a continuous glucometer that communicates with an Insulin pump.
They exist but are not fda approved due to issues with hypoglycemia, but will likely be the future of Insulin care. Pancreas transplantation is currently the most reliable way to achieve optimized glycemic control at the price of a large operation and lifelong immunosuppression.

In brief: Artificial pancreas

They have been working on this for decades.
Replacing cells of the pancreas is complex and is going to take time. Artificial pancreas project is close to a pump that will monitor your blood sugars and adjust Insulin given through a pump. This is the first step toward dramatically improving the lives of millions of people with type 1 diabetes. Current pumps require a laptop but will get smaller.
