Ok, when I think about chips being put into people, I immediately think government conspiracy and the like. Yet, reading more about the Implantable Silicon-Silk Electronics shows me that there is, of course, more to it than that. But I don’t have to like the idea of them.

Using special materials, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have created Implantable Silicon-Silk Electronics, which can almost completely dissolve inside the body. These implants could potentially make the procedure of monitoring the nervous system for medical purposes easier and safer. Stats for Dissolving Body Chips Trending: Older & Chilly
