Motorola introduced this strange invention a few months ago.. the Edible Password Pill. Swallowed once daily, the pill consists of a tiny chip that uses the acid in your stomach to power it on. Once activated, it emits a specific 18-bit EKG-like signal that can be detected by your phone or computer, essentially turning your body into a password.
This has real implications for future medical care… and tech. Imagine the kind of data that a human body can start storing, all the different ways we can deliver medicine. We are starting to approach a slightly dystopian future, but I can’t wait.
