    Good one Google - keep them coming

    Latest development from the mighty Google BBC News - Google unveils 'smart contact lens' to measure glucose levels

    This sounds like a potentially very useful device.

    I got really excited when I saw BBC's short headline (on the RSS feed) of Google unveils 'smart contact lens'

    "Yes!" I thought, "the future is here! They have shrunk Google Glass down to a contact lens already, and soon we will all be able to pretend we're in Neuromancer!"

    So most disappointing news story of 2014 so far for me

    I'm excited about it, regardless of it not being Google Glass or whatever. Its a step in that direction, but its also a huge step in terms of health monitoring.

    Apart from the bit where people who suffer from diabetes are generally advised not to wear contact lenses.
