Do you ever find it annoying to have to type in all that password information every time you want to check your email or login to any secure websites? What if it was as easy as popping a pill? Motorola has been working on this solution that was presented at a tech conference last week. Your stomach supplies the electrical power. Your body becomes the on/off switch for all your devices. The pill is already approved by the US FDA. Last week I was at an expert meeting on cyber security in Paris. Top of the “wish list” of the members at the meeting was idiot proof secure identification, and all kinds of crazy possibilities were discussed. Now it looks like science fiction becomes reality. Pills could become a vital part of the internet of things ecosystem.
