Google's Smart Contact Lenses

Google is developing a "smart" contact lens where the chips and sensors inside will help to aid with diabetes by tracking glucose levels in a person's tear.

"Tracking blood glucose, or blood-sugar-concentration, is a way to monitor the spikes and drops that are common in people with diabetes.

Google is still testing the technology in the contact lenses, which could eventually include tiny LED lights that could light up when a wearer's glucose levels cross above or below certain thresholds, the company says."
