Google’s Smart Contact Lens project
Google announced last week they’re currently testing a new “smart” contact lens which uses a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material to detect glucose levels for diabetics.
The prototypes, not yet FDA approved can generate one reading per second using tear fluid from the eyes of it’s wearer. The contact lens is also being tested to detect early warning signs that would trigger a tiny LED light to indicate a spike or decline in normal glucose levels. The project is still in its early stages, but making leaps and bounds in clinical research to help refine the prototype as said on Google’s blog.
