Whenever we talk about something smart and automatic - the threat of Hacking looms large .

I think to avoid such hacking, such devices could be isolated from any kind of local area network or mobile network.  Once programmed and installed on the target ( whether it is human body, or any such object), the devices should work in standalone mode.

chanj0 : The leading edge of this sort of work is with insulin pumps and the efforts on a so-called "artificial pancreas" which I believe are delivering insulin automatically based on automated glucose meter readings.

Yes you could hack these things, but you could hack pacemakers and other implants too. It's an issue but given their personal-area networks in the scheme of things maybe not the most vulnerable hacker frontier.

Monitoring level of different chemical, for example, insulin, is exceptional useful. There is existing product with apps on smartphone to monitor insulin level for diabetics patiences. Yet, the smaller; the better. This shall be one of the first application area.

I'm not too sure about the application of drug delivery. There will be too many hurdles to go through including security. What if someone hack the smartphone to "overdose" the patience.
