Can You Hear Me Now?

Canadian company Zarlink Semiconductor has developed a new antenna technology that allows the antenna to be implanted within the human body. The antenna is the size of a postage stamp, and is ~1mm thick. Initially, it will be attached to things like pacemakers. The first models will only send a signal a short distance to a bedside receiver, but they eventually hope to use cellphones to relay information to a doctor's office.

Talk about being wired for sound!
