Forget Google glass, now they are working on contact lenses.

Scientists at the Google research facility in California are working on contact lenses containing tiny electronics that can constantly monitor glucose levels in the tears of people with high levels of glucose.

It may not help you much if you aren't diabetics, but is a great challenge for who does have this disease. Can you imagine have your glucose checked without the every day pain&blood process?

Of course, "It’s still early days for this technology, but we've completed multiple clinical research studies which are helping to refine our prototype," Google claimed. "We hope this could someday lead to a new way for people with diabetes to manage their disease."

A tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material. They may be able to insert a LED light to indicate that the level is close to the thresholds. Also can communicate with smartphones or tablets for helping you to talk with your doctor. Another big difference? It's something you can wear every single minute in your day without noticing.
