Google’s new wearable project is a smart contact lens with medical uses.

Google’s new wearable project is a smart contact lens with medical uses
ImageGoogle loves wearables and this time it’s getting even closer to your body with a developmental smart contact lens. Through miniaturized electronics, it can apparently measure the levels of glucose in your tears, offering diabetics an easier way to monitor their condition without the needles and the blood — something we’ve reported on a several before. A tiny (really tiny) wireless chip and glucose sensor are wedged between two layers of “biocompatible” contact lens material, and Google is saying that it’s already working on embedding tiny LED lights for notifications, too. There’s been no shortage of developmental contact lens tech over the last few years, but the clout of Google means this could well be the most realistic mainstream offering, in addition to its very practical use cases. Google is currently angling for partners with more expertise in the medical market to help make it happen and is “in discussions with the FDA” to ensure the tech ticks all the right healthcare boxes before it progresses further.

Recode’s got a deep dive on the make-up of the smart contact: we’ve added their science textbook-grade diagram right after the break.

Sizzling hot Alia Likes To Play It Hard

If one goes by Alia Bhatt’s debut, her magazine shoots and recent TV commercials it would be safe to tag her as a style-conscious diva whose world pretty much revolves around clothes and makeup.



But while Alia definitely loves her fashion, there is also another side to her.

Her next film is a gritty Imtiaz Ali thriller called Highway. And it has been a gruelling, outdoor shoot for her; minus all the gloss and comforts of SOTY.

At the launch of a music video for a cosmetics brand, we caught up with the Bhatt babe to find out if she dreads non-glam roles where she can’t showcase her fashion sense.

“I agree Highway has been a long and difficult shoot, while my ad-campaigns are all glossy and colorful. But it is not fair to ask me what is more fun”.
