Be Sure to Eat Your R.F.I.D.

by


The tracking technology known as RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) is showing up everywhere from grocery stores, to shipping containers, to gas station, to toll roads. Now, your intestines can join in the radio wave fun!

digestible rfid tags

Kodak has filed this patent application for RFID tagged capsules that could be swallowed to track activity in a patient’s digestive system. The capsules would contain a tiny tracking chip which could be used to monitor a patient’s medication history, or to transmit other medical information to a nearby RF data collector. The pills would be designed to break down over time without harming the recipient.

While the idea might seem a little odd, it actually has potential to reduce the need for invasive medical procedures, as well as to ensure that patients take the proper dosage of their medicines.

  1. Wow that’s weird yet somehow arousing at the same time :D

    Thing i don’t get is what data coudld it possibly send back? It’s position in the intestine? How would it know? I mean you can’t exactly use GPS for that.

    I suspect the rfids seem capable to communicate with any cellphone.

    how can it monitor a patient’s medication history?

    maybe it can track the location of a certain person, but track whatever the person is eating? hmm.. how?

  6. Mark says:

    Not just the government keeping track on you, just think of the biblical implications! Read Revelation 14 if you ever get a chance…

    People! Be aware! This is not a joke, these RFID Chips are every where! Do not let them outsmart you, our world is coming to an end this is not joke soon everyone will be forced to take it, if he doesn’t he won’t be able to buy or sell.

    Goverments aren’t humans! These people are monsters (fallen one’s).

    Their already implanting RFID chips inside people bodies, they use food as a weapon, they install the RFID in a fish can or anything else and you don’t realize. In the picture/diagram it looks big, but Governments are way ahead of us in technology, they make it so small and impossible to realize and you eat it.

    This is very dangerous, your simply a robot they control you, they have a option they can shut you down, I don’t know how to explain this, I don’t know if you seen Terminator the movie….

    Once they shut you down using some remote device, you die! THIS IS NOT A JOKE

    The’ll make up good excuse so everyone takes it, and lots will take it sadly.

    You have been warned in many religions about this, you live in a corrupted world.

    Elites control everything, they own everything they own you!

    Be aware, people need to learn to grow vegetables, fruits and other food.

    You cannot just simply buy, they are creating a pig out of you, it will be easier for them to slaughter you.

    Brothers and friends, either accept the facts or don’t your soul depends on it.
