Patent application filed for remote-controlled implants

Marc Perton

A group of researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Lab has filed a patent application for a system of "implantable devices using magnetic guidance." As envisioned by the developers, the system will allow implants such as eye and ear enhancements to be controlled externally. Unfortunately, the application is based on a system that would require a wired connection using an electromagnetic charge. Too bad. We were really looking forward to the ability to get our commands delivered directly from the collective, and having to be within shouting distance of the Queen really doesn't do it.
