LarryM99: I believe that some detailed points are made in this paper. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/02/120222094250.htm Contacting Ada Poon directly might give even more insight into her research.

Seriously? That's interesting. We did some work years back with a medical device manufacturer and we avoided Bluetooth on the assumption that it wouldn't transmit well through tissue. Do you have a reference for that? Thanks, Larry M.

This reminds me of another article I read recently where researchers are trying to connect the human nervous system to the prosthetic parts. Whichever way succeeds it will be all for the betterment of those who need to have implants or artificial limbs.

Cool stuff, especially the propellent part. It all comes from Ada Poon's research at Stanford: http://www.stanford.edu/~adapoon/ And it all stems from Poon's discovery that by modeling wireless links inside the body using equations other than common Maxwell's equations yields that high-frequency radio waves travel much farther in human tissue than originally thought. Fascinating stuff.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
