They are pushing this as being beneficial for seniors. That's their gateway in, so it will be publicly accepted.The pills, made by Proteus Digital Health, have sand-particle-sized silicon chips with small amounts of magnesium and copper on them. After they're swallowed, they generate voltage as they make contact with digestive juices. That signals a patch on the person's skin, which then relays a message to a mobile phone given to a healthcare provider. It's only been approved for use with placebos right now, but the company is hoping to get it approved for use with other drugs.
