Video: Novartis joins Google to make smart contact lens

Looks like Google and health care company Novartis are seeing eye to eye. The duo struck a contract Tuesday to make the search giant's futuristic contact lens a reality.

​​In January, Google first teased its smart contact lens project and began looking for partners to bring the idea into the consumer market. It focused on creating noninvasive biometric sensors and wireless data transfer for the thin, clear circle so many people depend on. 

This new partnership will fuse Novartis' expertise in biology and Google's ability to produce cutting-edge technology on a miniature scale.
