Google hasn't released its wearable device, Glass, just yet, but the Mountain View-based search giant is already teasing another wearable project: a smart contact lens with metal uses.

There's a very tiny wireless chip and glucose sensor, which are pegged between two layers of contact lens material. Google is reportedly also already working on embedding tiny LED lights for notifications, too. Before Google moves further with this new wearable project, it is in talks with the FDA and other partners - so this is a while off yet, folks.
