The latest fantastical project to come out the Google X lab is a smart contact lens, the company said in a blog post on Thursday.
Word leaked last week that Google was talking to the FDA about a new project involving biosensors.
The lens is being developed specifically to help track blood glucose levels for diabetics, as an alternative to the painful pricking-of-the-finger that diabetics must endure today.
And yes, Google is talking to the FDA about these lenses.
