IEEE, the world’s largest professional association advancing technology for humanity, today announced a new standard, IEEE 802.15.6™-2012, optimized to serve wireless communications needs for ultra-low power devices operating in or around the human body.
Or, put another way, a human LAN will run at 10mbps and data-processing implants can be wireless. Consumer-level reporting devices. Hook ‘em up to ifttt and have your liver email your doctor’s computer. Turn your organs into blogjects. (That’s very six-years-ago, but still amusing to me.)
