Google announced their smart contact lens a couple months ago – one that could measure glucose without the need to prick the skin, a huge boon for those with diabetes. Not the sort to pause and take a breath after a win like that, the mad scientists of Silicon Valley already have version 2.0 on deck at the patent office, and, like every good piece of wearable tech, it’s got a camera attached. This means that soon you could be snapping selfies in every reflective surface you walk by with just a whim and a blink. Or, better yet, you could take a picture of literally anything else. Of course, bear in mind these are just patents - it could be a little while before you’re trolling South Beach winking at every bikini you see.

Are you Spritzing?

Spritz is a Boston-based start-up that focuses on text streaming technology.  ’Spritzing’ is reading text with Spritz’s patent-pending technology.  When you’re ‘spritzing’, you’re reading text one word at a time in their “redicle,” a special visual frame they’ve designed for reading. The Spritz app lets you set the speed between 250 words per minute and 1000 wpm.  At the top speed, a reader could speed through the first Harry Potter novel (223 pages) in just over an hour.
