Google Smart Contact Lens To Soon Become A Reality As Licensing Deal Gets Signed

When it comes to technology, we cannot even for a second doubt the innovative abilities of the search giant Google and now its presence in the mobile industry is truly mesmerizing. The Google Glass for instance, though controversial, is the most popular device but that isn’t the only project which the company is working on. The smart contact lenses seem to be in the pipeline. These lenses are going to offer significant health benefits those suffering with diabetes and this project soared to a new height as Google went into a licensing deal with Novartis subsidiary Alcon. Though we are thinking there wont be anyone who wont be familiar with Novartis, but just for the benefit of the few of those who don’t, it is a pharmaceutical giant and the most well known in the industry and Alcon serves as its eye care division.

This deal between two giant companies is a huge deal particularly for Google and its smart lenses project. These lenses with the ability to measure glucose levels of tears and push this data to a user’s smartphone, and with the ability to alert a diabetic when these levels are too high, it is the most health centered product. The smart lenses have run through a couple of trials but this deal with Novartis is just the confirmation we needed.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
