A contraceptive computer chip that can be controlled by remote control has been developed in Massachusetts.
The chip is implanted under a woman’s skin, releasing a small dose of levonorgestrel, a hormone.
This will happen every day for 16 years, but can be stopped at any time by using a wireless remote control.
Every day for 16 years!? So that means one chip will contain approximately 5844 daily doses of the hormone. I’m not sure I’d feel comfortable having that much of a drug in my body and simply trusting that the “time release” function will work properly.
