Functional Contact Lens Monitors Blood Sugar Without Needles (HD version)

Loading ....


Researchers from the University of Washington (UW) and Microsoft Research Connections (MRC) are working together to develop a non-invasive, technological solution that promises to improve both the health and overall quality of life for diabetics: a contact lens that monitors blood glucose levels. This innovative solution represents a trend in technology, the Natural User Interface (NUI).

  1. Very cool. One issue I see though is that diabetics typically don’t produce tears very well. Many have dry eyes continuously throughout the day and take eye drops. How could this impact the readings?

  2. The idea of being able to put an interface on the contacts is cool. But the whole diabetic thing is a load of shit. Diabetics already have problems with blood being able to travel to small blood vessels especially that of your eyes. when you put contacts on your eyes, it suffocates the eye even more. meaning youd have greater chance of going blind. First of all, this is a great example of how money persuades technology to go the long route with healthcare. Type 1 diabetes is a bad disease, but it is a very unnecessary one, one that can be cured simply by a transplant or helping your body rebuild the pancreas which it is fully capable of. All that is necessary is the right diet, one with fruits and vegetables, natural medicines. T1D was created by humans anyway, putting vaccines in our body that cause our immune system to attack its own beta cells. This is a great example of how technology always takes four steps backwards before taking one leap forward. People don’t want to keep monitoring their diseases, people don’t want more ways to see how their body is failing them.  Citizens want cures. Governments, want to feed off the sicknesses of its people, Sheep like to believe them. It’s sick-care, and its the truth.

  3. I think for someone like me who’s very forgetful, a natural interface in the form of a contact lense would be extremely helpful.

  4. fake ! google made it farst

  5. yay i can cheat on exams now with the high pro technology way  

  6. good

  7. no, you just see clearly.

  8. How does anyone even do this kinda thing? Can anyone teach me? This is incredible

  9. you are hilarious xD

  10. Error windows and BSODs are coming true!!!

  11. now anybody can watch pron without people knowing it >;)

  12. I must have this!

  13. That sounds amazing. I have two questions (I couldn’t find the answer in the case study):
    1. Power source? Is there “just” a passive RC circuit in the lens and someone can get the current value reading with a wireless device? Or it’s active and has some kind of battery?
    2. If tear can be used for measurement, can it be used without the lens? So the patient would tear periodically throughout the day and some external device would gathers/sample and read. That would be cheaper?

  14. Good Bless Technology!

  15. hello, future!

  16. Ah yes…
    Finally my fantasy of one day owning a fully functioning nanosuit a la Crysis is just one step closer to being a reality…

  17. Microsoft presents “the eye phone”

  18. the augmented reality concept would be sooooooooooo cool.
