Very interesting new use for RFID

By now most people know about RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips - but here's an innovative new implementation of the technology. An implantable RFID chip that will allow diabetics to monitor blood glucose levels without needing to do a finger stick! Read all about it here in the press release from the company that developed the chip, Digital Angel. This is a very good thing - instead of two, three (or more) finger sticks a day, just hold the reader over the chip in your arm (or wherever you and your doctor decided to place it) and get an accurate glucose reading. What'll they think of next...
