Tooth phone implants

The "tooth phone" consists of a tiny vibrator and a radio wave receiver implanted into a tooth during routine dental surgery. The phone was designed by James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau.

The implant does not yet have its own microchip installed, but Auger says the technology is tried and tested, and a fully functional phone could be put together in no time at all.

    Didn't some prominent comedian do a routine about such a thing a while ago?

    Seems vaguely familiar.

    And vaguely scary in the arena of "things that distract people who have a hard enough time staying coherent enough to keep from accidentally killing thousands of people around them, EVEN MORE."

    "beep, beep, beep, beep, beep... "
