Google Smart Contact Lens
While Google Glass does its awkward and — let’s face it — not very enticing debut dance, there’s another piece of eyewear that may wind up being more useful sooner than later, especially to people who suffer with diabetes. Google says its “Smart Contact Lens” lets diabetics measure their glucose levels through their tears. At first glance, that certainly sounds more important than being able to surf the Huffington Post with your eyeballs.
The lens apparently uses a miniscule electronic chip and antenna to read blood sugar levels whenever the wearer watches Schindler’s List. Google says FDA testing and such will take a while before everything gets the green light for public use.
