Google has no doubt proven themselves worthy of being helmed a revolutionary tech company. From tech to auto, retail, entertainment, mobile and now health. Officially on Google Blog, a team of developers in Google X unit have been working contentiously on a revolutionary contact lens which aims to measure glucose levels. The team is in the process of creating a prototype that would do reading once per second. This invention is definitely a must have for those who need to deal with type 1 or 2 diabetes. A new revolutionary research by Google to change the way we maintain our health. Now, instead of pricking your finger to test blood sugar, all you need is just an easy pair of contact lens! Nicely embedded on the lens is a very minute sized chip which transmits data of blood sugar levels. There is also a small pinhole between lens and eyes that allow an easier flow of fluid into the lens itself.

Google X project leads Brian Otis and Babak Parvi talks about their take on using  “At Google, we wondered if miniaturized electronics—think: chips and sensors so small they look like bits of glitter, and an antenna thinner than a human hair—might be a way to crack the mystery of tear glucose and measure it with greater accuracy.”
