Abstract: Editorial regarding pieces of technology, which until a couple of years ago, were expected to hail from a Star Trek episode. FDA has approved the Proteus Digital Health’s new chip-embedded capsules which can report back to a sensor and your smartphone when medications have been ingested. The Department of Homeland Security (US) has developed the Future Attribute Screening Technology (FAST) programme. Its primary aim is to detect crimes in sensitive areas, example, airports, by screening people for “psychological and physiological indicators” including heart rate, skin temperature, breathing, facial expression, body movement, pupil dilation, and other “psychophysiological/ behavioral patterns” to stop “unknown terrorists”. The development of Hybrid Insect Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (HIMEMS) is a project of the US Department of Defense. The primary goal is to developing machine-insect interfaces by placing micro-mechanical systems inside the insects during the early stages of metamorphosis in order to exert control over the insect’s locomotion.
