Get streaming video of your innards using ultrasound

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have used ultrasonic waves that travel fast enough through flesh to deliver streaming video. To simulate the human soft tissue that slows radio waves, scientists hung slabs of pork loin and beef liver in water tanks and fired data through the mixtures. They achieved 30Mb of data transfer per second — about 1000 times the maximum speed that existing bodily implants achieve via radio waves. That 30mb/s is fast enough to stream Netflix, but the real value will be in broadcasting live video and other data from within the body. – David Lumb, Engadget http://ift.tt/20JkSJX
