Submission + - Edible RFID Tags

giampy writes: New Scientist is reporting that Kodak has filed a patent for edible RFID tags. "The tags would be covered with soft gelatin that takes a while to dissolve in the stomach. After swallowing a tag a patient need only sit next to a radio source and receiver". They claim that these tags could be embedded in pills and used to monitor a person digestive system, among other things.

"People should have access to the data which you have about them. There should be a process for them to challenge any inaccuracies." -- Arthur Miller
