After smart watches and smart glasses, Google’s ditching accessories and going straight for the eyes. Its latest high-tech wearable isn’t just for show-- its purpose is to help diabetics manage their blood sugar levels.
Developed in conjunction with Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis and their Alcon eye care sector, the smart contact lens Google announced in January will analyze the wearer’s tears to keep track of their blood glucose levels.
Google[x], the team responsible for such futuristic concepts as the self-driving car, will continue to develop the lens along with Alcon. The goal is for all the sensors and microchips present in the lens to reach a working level of seamless integration and communication.
Although primarily developed for diabetics, both Google and Alcon claim that this smart lens technology might offer relief to people suffering from presbyopia, the inability to focus on near objects.
“Our dream is to use the latest technology in the miniaturization of electronics to help improve the quality of life for millions of people,” Google’s Sergey Brin said. “We are very excited to work with Novartis to make this dream come true.”
