‘The beginning of something big’


What is it?

Wearable chips are chips implanted in the skin of a human to exchange information about the body. You will meet your body statistics online and offline, because of the Wi-Fi connection between the chip and a device. The name of the man who made this, is Tim Cannon. He made such chip calling it the Circadia 1.0, for tracking the bodily data. It is not a product for now or for use, but it’s a start and I think it’s a big start for new technology.

Why is it cool?

I think it’s cool because it’s a new way of having control over your body. There are a lot of diseases and restrictions all over the world, so I think it would be amazing if wearable chips are the solution to many of those sickness. The Circadia works as a doctor, but it also works as a desire robot. If you’re having a day filled with stress, the chip knows it. If you’re back home from work, the chip will make connection with your home Wi-Fi and search for solutions, for example; high up the heat or put some relax music on. It explains the trend in our current society, to know more about ourselves. There is more need to know about food, health, the world or new technology. We just want more and know more about true things. So if there is a need to know everything about the body, here it is.

Tim Cannon explains his thoughts as: ‘I think that our environment should listen more accurately and more intuitively to what’s happening in our body’.

Why it has Future Grown Potential?

It has future grown potential because of the way it’s made. It’s made with a thought of learning more about the body then happens today. The chip must become smaller, if it will work for the mainstream. What I mean and what I already said; this chip is just the beginning of something big. The chip has to develop, has to be more extensive and acceptable for everyone. Besides that, I think it’s very useable in the future. People want to know everything in the future, so hurry up!
