The Google X Lab is currently creating a smart contact lens, which will be able to monitor your body’s health.
The main aim of the lens is to help track the blood glucose levels for people who suffer from diabetes, so they no longer have to use the lancet, which pricks the finger and can be somewhat painful.
According to a representative of Google ‘The lens has chips and sensors so small they look like bits of glitter, and an antenna thinner than a human hair.’ They are also hoping to add an LED light that will flash when glucose levels are abnormal.
The news of this contact lens comes after the creation of the Google glass and it appears that they next step for technology will be in the form of glasses or contact lenses.
Technology keynote speaker, Ian Pearson informed us that the future of technology would be in contact lenses and if the up and coming Google creations are anything to go by, he appears to have predicted correctly.
