With so many things turning smart, there is another smart device on which Google is working on – “Smart Contact Lenses”. Novartis has teamed up with Google and announced that its eye care division Alcon will be licensing the search-giant’s much-anticipated “smart lens” technology for all ocular medical uses.
Novartis has signed the deal with Google[x], a team behind the Smart Contact Lenses that Google has been developing for quite some time. Alcon, the company’s eye-care subsidiary, will develop and commercialize Google’s “smart lens” technology, which was revealed earlier this year.
Under the agreement, Google[x] and Alcon will collaborate to develop a “smart lens” that could totally change how humans react and respond to health worries. One of the applications of the contact lens is to help diabetics keep a closer eye on the insulin levels. The lenses have been designed to measure tear fluid in the eye and connect wirelessly with a mobile device. They could also end up helping the visually-impaired to see again. Novartis says non-invasive sensors, microchips and other miniaturized electronics which are embedded within contact lenses have the potential to address ocular conditions.
