OK Glass, Cure My Cold

Pffft, glasses? When is this, 2013?

Cool news today, as Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis have announced in a statement that they are licencing Google's new smart contact lenseseses. Even though they aren't Google Glass smart, they're revolutionary in terms of medical technology, as they can be used to measure someone's glucose levels, eliminating the need for diabetics to prick themselves every time they need to test, and also meaning that sufferers will be able to find out quickly whether their levels are low or not. Who needs doctors?

Still, not only are the lens useful for diabetics, but they are also being used to help the visually impaired. Novaris stated that the lens have "the potential to provide accommodative vision correction to help restore the eye's natural autofocus on near objects". It sounds like these lens will use autofocus tech found in cameras, so here's your chance to shine Nokia! Anyways, this is the first step into the future of Google lens, so what could be next?
