Hard not to let the mind swerve off into Big Brother territory with this news. The @UofR Medical Center ( @urmcdiscoveries ) has been granted a patent on a new technology that will allow patients to be monitored by their doctors at all times, allowing doctors to be alerted to minute physiological changes that could be the signs of worse things to come, such as a heart attack.
The chip actually contains living cells from the patient’s own body that are tied into the reporting system. So not only do you have a computer inside you, but you have a computer inside you that has you living inside it. Freaky, man:
