Microchip, Future Contraceptives

The sophistication of the technology can help reduce the number of the world’s population. This is what try created by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a foundation owned by billionaire Bill Gates. They created a microchip, the chip that functions as a contraceptive which can be arranged by phone.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a high-tech chip contraceptive that can be controlled via remote control.

Chip birth control were planted under the skin of women. Once inside the tissue under the skin, it releases the hormone levonorgestrel in small doses.

Amazingly, these chips will last for 16 years. During that time, he will continue to release the hormone levonorgestrel per day. However, the process can be stopped by using the wireless remote.

Bill Gates-backed project will be submitted for pre-clinical testing in the United States next year. This chip will probably be available commercially started in 2018.

Quoted from Cnet, this chip measuring only 20 x 20 x 7 mm and developed in 16 years. This microchip will be implanted into the skin and give a dose of 30 micrograms of levonorgestrel, a material often used in the contraceptive pill.

By using this tool, women do not need to take the pill every day. They can be set when the microchip perform their duties in accordance with their wishes via remote control or mobile phone.

“Microchip uses a data structure that is designed to be able to adjust the settings of the user. This chip can also receive a schedule of when levonorgestrel will be deployed with activation sensor,” said MIT on its website.

So far, MIT has conducted clinical trials on women, and as a result, the microchip can work well. In addition, these tools also will not disturb the immune system and it only takes 30 minutes to install.

Now, the Bill Gates Foundation, Bill & Miranda Gates Foundation, is requesting permission to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States to run the family planning program. If permission is already out, these tools will be freely sold in 2018 worldwide with online bookings and strict rules.
