New Device Gives Your Doctor All the Answers

We all know we're supposed to keep our doctors informed about any allergy or medical condition, but sometimes we forget. Remembering every detail could soon be as easy as swiping a scanner.

The FDA is giving the green light for the marketing of an implantable computer chip that can store a person's medical history. That means a simple scanner swipe could open data files on the chip to reveal all that important stuff about you.

The Verichip, made by applied digital, is implanted just under the skin's surface. Actually, it's already being used in Mexico.
