Video: Glucose-sensing lens

0Need at least 3 ratings

This Alphabet (formerly Google) designed  contact lens prototype  looks like any other contact lens on the market, except tiny antennae run rings around the outside of the lens. They are connected to a tiny sensor that can measure glucose levels found in the wearer’s tears once every second. That information can then be transmitted to a receiver, such as the wearer’s smartphone. According to the blog post on the lens, the company is even exploring such options as tiny lights that would illuminate if the wearer’s blood glucose level trended too high or too low. It’s an incredible tool for anyone who wants to monitor their diabetes.

As mentioned in Chapter 4 of the book Super You
