A team at the University of Washington has developed a way for medical implants and contact lenses to communicate with devices like smartphones and watches.
Electrical engineers call it "interscatter communication."
The technology turns the blue tooth signals into Wi-Fi signals -- using very little power.
Researchers say it could transform how chronic diseases, such as diabetes, are managed.
The team hopes to work with medical device companies to incorporate the technology.
