New Microchip Technology to Track ‘Smart Pills’

Researchers at Caltech have developed a prototype miniature medical device that could ultimately be used in “smart pills” to diagnose and treat diseases. This new technology’s location can be precisely identified within the body, something that was challenging before. A smart pill contains a one-square-millimeter sensor . Once swallowed, the sensor is activated by electrolytes within the body. […]
