A Fitbit for the Stomach

 MIT’s researchers spend a lot of time thinking about digestible technology. In the past couple of years, scientists at the school have developed all sorts of swallowable devices, including a robot fashioned from pig parts designed to remove batteries. The school’s Koch Institute in particular has focused on the space, looking at ways in which digestible sensors can be used to… Read More
