Seeing Glucose in the Google Lens


tearsIt’s been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. If you’re Google, you say that the eyes quite possibly can be a way to measure blood glucose, according to the latest press release from the company with the motto “don’t be evil.

Last week, Google announced that it has begun developing a lens to be worn in the eye that can measure glucose levels in tears.  The mastermindss behind this project are Brian Otis and Babak Parviz . The Google[x] Lab has been working on this miniature marvel the last few years and hopes to bring it to the diabetes market within the next 5 years.

The most exciting thing about this GOOG news is that it’s coming from Google. The deep pockets of Google and immeasurable brain power in the think tank give hope to a world where glucose can be accurately measured without shedding blood. This may require a tear or two but that’s just for dramatic effect.
