Glucose Sensing Contact Lens

Apr 23, 2015


Google gets the patent on a system that would likely contain a couple of parts: the contact lens, which would sense glucose levels; a "reader" device, which would communicate and power the contact lens; and a user display, where the reader and user display could be on the same device. The patent specifically mentions the possibility of eyeglasses, jewelry, earrings, necklace or even clothing as the reader. The display device could even be a smart phone, or wearable computer.
