The far-reaching realms of science fiction literature and film constantly puts forth a future in which wetware, computer mechanisms embedded in our bodies, will be as common as wearing a pair of glasses. And while the real-world hurdles to some of those wetware scenarios have yet to be conquered, a significant challenge regarding brain-to-computer interfaces has finally been overcome by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The breakthrough technology is a tiny implantable fuel cell chip that uses glucose to power its functions and could one day be used to drive computer-to-brain interfaces. What makes the chip so groundbreaking is that, like semiconductor electronic chips, the fuel cell chip is made from silicon.
Active RFID chips can be read from considerable distance as they use a power supply and a transmitter to transmit the information to a receiver.
I'm trying to bring this to your attention so we can know what to expect in the near future. We need to stay one step ahead of the technology to avoid loosing all of our "rights".
