Chips on pills could let nurses ensure they are swallowed. VIP guests at a bar in Barcelona don't need to have their names on the list or ID to get in, or indeed cards or cash. The chip, developed by VeriChip Corporation, links to an online guest list and bar tab. It is also used in hospitals and as a security pass. Football authorities have long considered electronic systems to determine whether the ball crosses the goal line.
Under the skin: how insertable microchips could unlock the future
Adidas has developed a chipped ball that causes the referee's watch to beep if it passes readers in the goalposts. Similar chips in shin pads could perfect offside decisions.

Researchers at The Ohio State University Neurological Institute have successfully implanted a microchip into the motor cortex of a year-old quadriplegic by the name of Ian Burkhart. This chip reads brain activity and, using a signal decoder and special sleeve, actually allows the Burkhart to control movement of his arm. While there is still much research to be conducted, this is such encouraging news for quadriplegics!
When our founder, Fred Thompson, first began serving veterans and the quadriplegic community in the s, this type of innovation was something only fantasized about on television and in movies. ASI continues to stay on top of the latest research and innovations.
