Kodak sez, eat this RFID

Share

The idea behind the edible RFID radio chip from Kodak is that you can swallow it, and your doc can monitor how your gut goes about dissolving it. Or it can go in your artificial hip or knee and phone home if there are any problems. Or it can go on your prescriptions so your nurses can see if you’re taking them properly. Big Brotherish as the latter may be, I personally take 20-30 prescription pills a day, and would welcome being able to have my computer explicitly hassle me (or be able to experiment with dosing at different times of day to see if the effect is improved, etc).
