Microchip Will Deliver Drugs In Your Body By Remote Control

Why take a drug by the Bottle or Pill when you can just have an “Implantable Microchip”? that’s what is being proposed according to a report by MotherBoard where Biomedical engineer Robert Langer has proposed an implantable microchip that can deliver drugs by wireless signal. The chips Langer and his team are working on are around two centimetres squared and contain up to 1,000 tiny “wells” you can put different drugs in, each with a little cover. As the covers are removed, the drug is released. You could put 1,000 doses of the same drug in to be released over time, or different ones. “You can also literally have a pharmacy on a chip if the drugs are potent enough,” he told me in a phone interview.
