==> ‘TOOTH PHONE’
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.
