Behind The Specs

Eyewear is by all means a necessity and a frill at the same time, but when it comes to quirky facts about it, can you think of any interesting pieces of information that is worth knowing?  If you do… well, lucky you I have dug out a few interesting facts about the so-beloved spectacles.

Google Glass – Hot or Not!

Google glass is being tested by a wide range of people, such as Doctors, Hikers, Teachers, DJ’s and even Zookeepers. At the moment the design looks like a prop for a science fiction movie, however they are looking into implementing the technology on designer glasses.

7 Awesome Bionic Contact Lenses of the Future

Google’s new experimental project is inventing ‘Smart contact lenses’ to help people with diabetes to manage their disease by measuring the glucose levels in their tears.  At present, most people with the disease monitor their glucose levels by testing drops of blood.

It’s early days yet but a tiny wireless chip and miniaturised glucose sensor is to be embedded between two layers of lens material.  It will continuously monitor the level of glucose in the bloodstream and relay that information to a smartphone or computer.  This will prevent the more serious side effects before they
