+ - Scientists Embed Silicon Sensors in Human Cells->

Submitted by separsons
separsons (1765004) writes "Scientists from Spain’s Instituto de Microelectronica de Barcelona recently found that they could directly embed silicon nanochips into human body cells, and for the most part, cells would continue functioning normally. Once the technology is studied more and optimized, researchers say that chips could be used to study cell activity, detect diseases earlier, deliver drugs and even aid in repairing cells."
