Inside the lenses, a sensor will measure glucose levels, with a tiny RFID transmitter to send that data to a nearby device. Mind blowing? A little bit. And that’s only the beginning. You might not be able to see it, but teeny-tiny inventions in nanotechnology are forever changing the [Continue reading...]

Mobile Tech, Reimagined: Could These Crazy Concepts be the Future of Phones?

Kambala
