For the Gen X the future has turned out quite different. We don’t see any flying cars nor have we faced an invasion from machines yet. So, is this as far as it goes?
Certainly not! Medical technology hasn’t let us down. With its futuristic inventions, we have something to look forward to in the near future (flying cars maybe?). Until then, take a look at these intriguing and futuristic medical breakthroughs.
#1. Google Eye Implant
Continuing its innovative streak, the world’s most preferred search engine Google is working on a project called Google Contact Lens that can be implanted in one’s eye and replaces the natural lens in order to correct poor vision. It bonds to the eye with the same material as a soft contact lens. The lens also has various other medical applications such as recording glucose levels of diabetic patients, reading blood pressure of glaucoma patients as well as checking and accounting the wearer’s vision. However, it is still too early to predict when it will be out in the market but a patent has already been filed and clinical trials have proven successful.
