Google is now cooking up a smart contact lens.
It seems Google is keen on making a name for itself, in the innovation front at least (if it hasn’t already done it). Well they are at it again, this time they are working on a smart contact lens that measures glucose levels from the moisture on a user’s eyeball to track this for diabetes patients.
This information was officially announced in the past week. Google had previously revealed the project in a post on its official blog. At that time, the project remained unknown, but now, project co-founders Brian Otis and Babak Parviz explained that the device was to help those with diabetes keep track of their glucose levels.
They continued to say that they have completed many clinical research studies that have helped refine the product. Nevertheless, it’s not expected to be available to everyone any time soon, with the company claiming that there’s still much work to be done.
Wearable devices were a huge hit at this year’s CES, I mean we got to see watches, headsets and even rings embedded with electronic devices.
