Wi-Fi-Enabled Tooth Sensor Rats You Out When You Smoke or Overeat

New Wi-Fi-enabled tooth sensor rats you out when you smoke or overeat — Researchers at National Taiwan University have created a tooth-embedded sensor that will catch you in an unhealthy act, whatever it may be, and lets your doctor know so he can shame you during your next checkup. The sensor consists of a tiny circuit that fits inside a tooth cavity and can be rigged into dentures and dental braces. The circuit is able to recognize the jaw motions of drinking, chewing, coughing, speaking, and smoking, and the results get sent directly to your doctor’s smartphone.

More internet of things (IoT).
