Google testing smart contact lens for diabetes patients
Re/code: Google announced Thursday that it is testing a smart contact lens that could help diabetes patients.
The lens contains a tiny chip and sensor system that sit on a flexible circular gold foil antenna around the perimeter of the lens. The technology is designed to measure glucose levels in tears every second.
According to the company, the goal of the smart lens is to create a less invasive way for diabetics to monitor their blood sugar levels.
I read about this a few months ago, but I had no idea it was in the testing stage. It would make my nerd heart so happy if the next development in diabetes care was a tech thing.
