Friday January 17th, 2014
Google are working on a smart contact lens that measures clucose levels in tears. It is aimed at helping people with diabetes.it uses a tiny clucose censer that will trigger tiny LED lights when clucose levels become a concern.
There is still a lot more testing to be done before the device can be launched though ,Google said.'It's still early days for this technology, but we've completed multiple clinical research studies which are helping to refine our prototype,' the firm said in a blogpost.
'We hope this could someday lead to a new way for people with diabetes to manage their disease.'
It is one of a growing trend of wearable technology that will be part of our lives in the near future. Other devices include sensible baby, a gadget that is put in a baby's clothing during the night, that monitors the baby's condition throughout the night and sends an alert to a smart phone if there are any problems, (temperature, heart rate etc) only last year Sony fitted a patient with a smart wig, that monitored the patients temperature blood pressure and pulse of the wearer.
