You thought a personal computer was cool, then a laptop was cool, then the smart phone, whoa, Google Glass. Scratch all that, how about contact lenses.
No more, Okay Google or Okay Glass. How about Okay Eye. ;-)
Google announced last night they are testing a new contact lens aimed at helping those with diabetes. This contact lens is "a smart contact lens that's built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material."
That is just the beginning - what can it do in the future? Google said they are testing this version to use "integrating tiny LED lights that could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds."
Yea, well, what about Google in your eye, not over your eye like Google Glass but in your eye.
It is not secret that Google's co-founder said they want computing implanted in one's brain. This is the first Google product that is actually inside a person (if you consider contact lenses inside).
Amazing - just amazing. Check out Techmeme for more coverage on this.
