Google Smart Contact Lens

No, it's not an eyeball-mounted version of Glass. Instead, the Google Smart Contact Lens aims to help those with diabetes manage their disease by using a tiny wireless chip and sensor that are embedded in the contact and constantly measure the glucose levels in the wearer's tears. Obviously they're still in the testing phase — they're even considering integrating tiny LED lights to indicate when levels spike or fall below certain thresholds — but for those suffering with diabetes, it can't hit the market fast enough.

  • Fitbit Flex

    If you still haven't picked up a Nike+ Fuelband or Jawbone Up, you ought to add the Fitbit Flex ($100) to your list of fitness trackers to check out. Like the others, the Flex is designed to be worn on your wrist, and tracks your steps, distance traveled, calories burned, active minutes, and quality of sleep, all of which it syncs to your iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth 4.0. It can even vibrate to wake you up gently. Arriving this Spring in a variety of stylish colors.
