Here,a small tiny wireless chip and a glucose sensor are added between the two layers of contact lens material. Those Chips are thinner than human hair. And, Google is saying that this method was worked already while doing project on embedding tiny LED lights for notifications. Cool ah?
This Smart Lens project was lead and headed by Brian Otis and Babak Parviz at Google. And they thinks, that this would be useful for all diabetes patients and to solve them. They hope, that these devices can save peoples who suffers from diabetes.
There are many devices available for monitoring the Glucose level. But Google Smart Lens will be the best tool for monitoring and for detecting diabetes level by using the patients tears. Google has discussion with the FDA for promoting this technology to market. And in that discussion, Google says,
We’re in discussions with the FDA, but there’s still a lot more work to do to turn this technology into a system that people can use. We’re not going to do this alone: we plan to look for partners who are experts in bringing products like this to market. These partners will use our technology for a smart contact lens and develop apps that would make the measurements available to the wearer and their doctor.
And One more interesting thing here is, the main aim to add LED lights into the lens is to notify. When the LED lights changes its colour, then it’s noted as the glucose levels is increasing or over the normal level.
Hope this project will be a super and useful gadget for all. [via]
