Engineers in the UK say they’ve developed a tooth implant that incorporates

a tiny vibrator and a radio wave receiver, and is capable of functioning

like a tooth-based cell phone. The implant does not yet have its own

microchip installed, but inventors James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau say the

technology has been tested, and that a fully functional phone is feasible.

Sound, received as a digital radio signal, would be transferred to the

inner ear by bone resonance, enabling information to be received anywhere

and at any time, with no one else the wiser. The invention raises the

possibility of financial traders receiving the latest stock market updates

while taking in a movie, or politicians receiving a secret briefing on the

issues while being quizzed by reporters.
