RFID implant for a healthier diet

VeriChip implant can help monitor diabetes

RFID glucose-monitor implant

See, we told you. RFID is taking over the world. We can now add diabetic monitoring to the infinite list of RFID applications.

Unlike the chips that are inevitably destined for our brains, however, this implanted device seems to have an indisputably worthy goal. VeriChip's invention is designed to help diabetics--and presumably others with high blood sugar--check their glucose levels without the need to break the skin through traditional testing methods. The implanted chip, which The Wireless Report says can be injected, transmits the glucose levels to scanners without the need for batteries. That sounds even easier to operate than our tin-foil hats.
