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.
