(Wired)   Motorola, er, Freescale, cooks up an ARM system-on-a-chip small enough to be swallowed. Heck, subby's passed a kidney stone bigger than this thing   (wired.com) divider line 18

A well researched Motorola being necessary to the continuity of a free internet, the right of the people to purchase and swallow ARMs shall not be infringed.

One application that Freescale says the chips could be used for is swallowable computers.

Gives a whole new twist to the term "megabyte."

Well, humans ARE a series of tubes.

It's for a little computer in your stomach that releases hormones to control apatite and/or ulcers.

I could probably choke down a keyboard key.  Now, that chip I could snort.

TFA? Hey, that's pretty cool.

Kidney stones? FFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
I've had 5 of the jerks. Wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.

Cool. Will it stop bad breath and let me live for years on the beach in a nanosecond?

Computers will be in jewelry.
Medical devices will be in watches and rings.
that ring on your finger? Monitors blood pressure, and gives you a drip of adrenaline as you need it. Or BP meds. or whatever. Maybe Meth, if they gave you the Chinese stuff.
that watch you are wearing? It's you phone, camera, flashlight, tv remote, and car keys. Plus it holds your medical records but can only release them if you are alive and consent to give them up.
that necklace on that chick over there at the party? She just did a scan of your face and is running it against every single dating site out there, and within ten seconds, she knows you like black men on alt dot com, and simultaneously claim to be jewish, straight, and free of STDs, but somehow she doubts it, and she already knows your real name, don't bother to introduce yourself to her. She's not interested. Ah, the future.
No more stolen glances across the room.
More like cyber stalking preemptively and running a credit report before date #1 along with a criminal back ground check .
Good luck with keeping track of your grand kids  They'll be chipping you and putting you in the old folks' warehouse and making you eat soylent green, while you won't be able to stray from the mall, when they let you out for excersize, for your protection.

This one has a ~25% smaller footprint. 1.9 x 2mm vs. 2.17 x 2.32 (nom.)
