The creepy and amazing world of computer implants

Cameras embedded in human skulls. Chips that translate thoughts into actions. Contact lenses that diagnose eye diseases. These computer implants will blow your mind.

'The Wireless Body'

PositiveID's Wireless Body, a new healthcare-management system for diabetes patients, uses an RFID microchip that's slightly larger than a long grain of rice. The chip is usually embedded in the patient's arm. Rather than enduring daily finger pricks, diabetics use a wireless scanner to get readings from the implant--an easier way to monitor and record their blood-sugar levels. Love it or hate it, RFID technology will soon play a major role in our daily lives.
