In this video, company Chaotic Moon Studios showcases their Tech Tats, wearable circuitry they define as "technology that is, in a sense, part of the user."

One example of a biowearable of sorts that’s serving as the weapon of choice for Google’s Life Sciences Division as they take on diabetes is a smart contact lens equipped with a tiny sensor that has the ability to measure the glucose level in tears. While it may seem a bit physically invasive, it’s actually making the testing process a far less invasive part of users’ lives. It doesn’t just spare diabetics the inconvenience of pricking their finger six to 10 times a day, but it allows them to monitor their glucose on the go without altering their normal behavior whatsoever. It’s completely automatic, completely easy, and it’s a wearable that experts believe those that suffer from diabetes will welcome into their lives with open arms (or, rather, open eyes).
