Google announces partnerhsip to develop special contact lenses

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Google is announcing a partnership with European drug maker Novartis to make a contact that monitors your blood sugar.

The contact would monitor the wearer's blood sugar level, using miniature sensors and a radio antenna that's thinner than a human hair.

The information could then be uploaded to smart phones and used in real-time for doctors and patients to better tailor treatments.

Google hopes to have a prototype for testing in January.
