There’s a Pill for That

By 02.06.2014 blog

What if you never ever had to remember another password? Would you be up for swallowing something, every day, that could make that happen?

That’s what the creators of a pill, originally designed to transmit medical information, think you might be willing to do in order to ban ‘forgot password’ buttons for good. The pill has tiny sensor inside of it, about the size of a grain of rice, that activates when it comes in contact with the acids in your stomach.

The pill then sends data to a sensor inside a patch that you wear on your skin, which in turn communicates with the device you’re trying to unlock — making your body’s own unique biology the key to unlocking your stuff.
