Everybody is familiar with the fact that diabetes is at its record high these days, every one of 19 people are diagnosed diabetic. Uncontrolled sugar levels can expose human body to very high risks, thus monitoring glucose levels becomes integral part of their lives. Sudden spikes or precipitous drops in glucose levels can be dangerous thus people use all sorts of equipment to monitor it which includes– glucose monitors with a glucose sensor embedded under their skin, or many have to still prick their fingers and test drop of bloods.
Google is now working on something which will help diabetics to get rid of these tiresome techniques for Glucose level monitoring. Google is now testing a Smart Contact Lens that’s built to measure Glucose levels in tears. What Google has does here is they developed a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material. Google is not stopping here and also trying to integrate a LED light notification which will indicate that glucose levels have crossed above or below certain thresholds.
