Gut electronics could be wirelessly powered

Over the past several years, we've heard about a number of swallowable electronic devices that perform functions such as transmitting video and measuring gases as they pass through the gastrointestinal tract. In the case of implants that are designed to stay in the tract for longer periods of time, however, battery life is a potential issue. Scientists at Brigham & Women's Hospital, MIT and The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory may have the solution, in the form of a system that allows power to be wirelessly transmitted to those devices, from outside the body...
