Digitimes Research: Google Glass for medicare?
Danny Kuo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 14 March 2014]

Wearable devices' functions have extended from the traditional area of information management to health management. This trend was highlighted by many smart health-monitoring bracelets showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014.

Google announced in January 2014 that its Google X laboratory will start developing smart contact lens that is able to constantly monitoring a person's blood sugar levels. The smart contact lens relies on a technological concept similar to radio frequency identification (RFID) and the firm has already created a prototype of the lens.

The smart contact lens could be a perfect match for Google Glass, which can act as a wireless signal transceiver of the contact lens. Digitimes Research believes the smart contact lens is more than just another addition to the health management market. It could help extend the value of Google Glass.
