Wireless Microchip Implant Set For Human Trials

Nicholas West

Once again, it seems that yesterday's conspiracy theory is today's news. 

However, the signposts have been there all along. Microchip implants to track pets and livestock and the elderly are now widely available, while microchipping kids is not far off. Extensive animal testing has been conducted on monkeys to enable them to control devices via brain-computer interface. Edible "smart pill" microchips have been embraced as a way to correctly monitor patient dosages and vital signs.

In the name of health and security - always the dynamic duo for introducing the next level of science fiction into everyday reality - a new wirelessly powered implant a fraction the size of a penny, as seen above, promises to offer a whole new ease of medical monitoring and drug delivery.

Futurist and a director of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, has discussed at length the imminent Human Body 2.0, which will incorporate medical nanobots that that can deliver drugs to specific cells and also identify certain genetic markers by using fluorescent labeling. Once these nanobots have entered the body, Kurzweil indicates that they could then connect our brains directly to Cloud computing systems. Most significantly, Kurzweil states:
It will be an incremental process, one already well under way. Although version 2.0 is a grand project, ultimately resulting in the radical upgrading of all our physical and mental systems, we will implement it one benign step at a time. Based on our current knowledge, we can already touch and feel the means for accomplishing each aspect of this vision. (emphasis added) [Source]
