Digital Implants You May Expect to See in Coming Years

Implantable smartphones, chips that monitor things such as blood sugar, pills that can report your status to your doctor, implantable birth control that can be turned on and off, implantable electronic keys, brain-computer interfaces, meltable bio-batteries, nano devices providing treatment or alleviating pain, and implantable ID chips.

These things offer the potential for much good and also for Orwellian nightmares.  My guess is we’ll get both, but the latter for sure.  Imagine what North Korea could do to its citizenry with some of this stuff.
