    Microchip that tells the GP if you’ve taken your pills
    By Jo Macfarlane

    New technology: Doctors could soon monitor whether a patient has taken medication by microchips in pills
    Microchips in pills could soon allow doctors to find out whether a patient has taken their medication.
    The digestible sensors, just 1mm wide, would mean GPs and surgeons could monitor patients outside the hospital or surgery.
    Developers say the technology could be particularly useful for psychiatric or elderly patients who rely on a complicated regime of drugs – and are at risk if they miss a dose or take it at the wrong time.
    It could also be used for the chronically ill, such as people with heart disease, to establish whether costly drugs are working or whether they are causing potentially dangerous side effects.

    The sensors could even remind women to take the Pill if they forget.
    The ‘intelligent’ medicine works by activating a harmless electric charge when drugs are digested by the stomach.

    This charge is picked up by a sensing patch on the patients’ stomach or back, which records the time and date that the pill is digested. It also measures heart rate, motion and breathing patterns.
    The information is transmitted to a patient’s mobile phone and then to the internet using wireless technology, to give a complete picture of their health and the impact of their drugs.
    Doctors and carers can view this information on secure web pages or have the information sent to their mobile phones.
    The silicon microchips are invisible to patients and can be added to any standard drug during the manufacturing process.

    Two major drugs companies are investigating the technology, developed by US-based Proteus Biomedical. Trials are to begin in the UK within 12 months.
    Professor Nick Peters, a cardiologist at Imperial College London, who is co-ordinating
    trials, said the technology was ‘transformative’.
    ‘This is all about empowering patients and their families because it measures wellness, and people can actually be tracked getting better,’ he said.
    ‘Psychologically speaking, that’s hugely helpful for patients and enormously reassuring for carers.
    ‘Normally patients would have to be in hospital to get this level of feedback, so the hope is that it frees up beds and saves the NHS money.’

    This was recently posted on. Try doing a google search on "RFID patents" and click on the links. You'll be amazed at all of the technology at the doorstep relating to microchips and the various uses available.

    Yikes! That picture was scary. I really can't sleep now-guess I'll leave the light on.

    Default IBM, Motorola Execs Say RFID Is Key to Better World

    RFID can be used to instrument social, economic and environmental changes globally, according to IBM's Martin Wildberger and Motorola's Jerry McNerney.

    Apr. 30, 2009—Radio frequency identification and other sensor technologies can do more than just improve business value—they have the potential to change the world. So say IBM's Martin Wildberger, a VP with the company's software group, and Jerry McNerney Motorola's VP of strategy and business development, speaking to attendees at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2009 conference, held this week in Orlando, Fla.

    IBM has been championing the use of technology to support what it calls an age of a globally integrated and intelligent economy, society and planet. In support of that concept, the computer technology firm launched its Smarter Planet Initiative in 2008.

    "I have been coming to RFID Journal LIVE! for several years," Wildberger said. "In the beginning, the conversation was about the technology. The keynote addresses now focus on the business value. That's great. But if you look at what makes you happy at the end of the day, one of the things I've always been motivated by is the impact of our work on the world."

    Wildberger challenged attendees to imagine all of the possibilities with RFID and other sensor technologies. "Often, we in this room see ourselves as leaders, and that we are pushing the envelope as to what this technology can do," he stated. "But our vision isn't grand enough."

    Wildberger cited opportunities to leverage RFID and sensor technologies in food and cold chains, to improve product safety and reduce the incidence of food-borne illnesses by enabling companies to track the location of goods in a supply chain, as well as temperature, humidity and other conditions. Wildberger said he's seen statistics indicating there are approximately 76 million cases of food-borne illnesses in the United States every year. "Up to 60 percent of produce and 75 percent of our seafood in the U.S. is imported," he added, "but only 1 percent of the food that crosses our borders is inspected."

    In addition, Wildberger said, there are also enormous opportunities for RFID to increase patient safety and lower health-care costs, by facilitating electronic medical records systems, improving communications flows and tracking assets, patients and employees.

    We know where this is going and who is doing the motivating behind the scenes. But, we also know who wins in the end! Thank you Lord Jesus!

    Default Computer Chips in bar soap

    It happened in bangalore india couple of days back. Bathing soap carried microchips causing quite a flutter. When enquired it was said that it was part of an effort to improve poor peoples living standards. It was revealed that the chip was capable of recording number of times the soap was used and frequency it was used thus giving them feedback on how to educate the poor on cleanliness.

    Sure it is.

    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.

    Well, they wouldn't get anywhere with our youngest. To quote a line from Mercer Mayer's Little Critter book entitled, "I Just Forgot:"

    "I didn't use soap, but I didn't forget to. I just don't like soap."
    "Oir is leatsa an rioghachd, agus an cumhachd, agus a gloir, gu siorraidh, Amen." ("For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen" -- Scots Gaelic)
