Google's Smart Contact Lens expected to arrive before 2019

Google is all set to release Smart Contact Lens before 2019

Google announced in January last year that it has developed a smart contact lens that will be able to measure sugar level in people affected with Diabetes. With their official announcement of this discovery, Google also said that there is a lot of work which needs to be done; therefore these contact lenses will be in market, no sooner than 2019.

Although in a recently released application, Google revealed several designs and ways in which it could package and sell these lenses. This, however, suggests that project can finish sooner than expected. A year ago, the organization declared that it was chipping away at a lens that would have the capacity to gauge a wearer's glucose levels by dissecting their tears. This lens could possibly uproot the requirement to prick fingers and draw blood to check the glucose level of Diabetics.

Google had previously passed the statement that this product will almost take 5 years to finish. But, this recent advancement shows that this product is in or near the completion phase. A Google representative said on the issue that product releases can’t be inferred from patent applications.

While, according to Quartz, “However, for a project that is supposedly in the research phase, it seems an interesting step to apply for a patent on how to package the product for consumers.” Alongside these issues, many people especially diabetics are impatiently waiting for the lens to be released soon.
