iBreast: MP3 in your Tits

nym | 12:41 PM
While Apple isn't currently working on a breast implant that holds an iPod, think tank, BT futurology is speculating on putting electronics in people's tits.
One boob could hold an MP3 player and the other the person's whole music collection.


BT Laboratories' analyst Ian Pearson said flexible plastic electronics would sit inside the breast. A signal would be relayed to headphones, while the device would be controlled by Bluetooth using a panel on the wrist.

Ian Pearson said to the British tabloid, The Sun, "It is now very hard for me to thing of breast implants as just decorative. If a woman has something implanted permanently, it might as well do something useful.". I tend to agree, but the idea of having legacy hardware in one's body isn't too exciting either, and really, who wants to be fondling someone's tits, only to have France Ferdinand start playing?

All kidding aside, there is potential in this kind of development for things like medical equipment to detect heart murmurs, blood pressure increases, and breast cancer.

Actually there already are implants that monitor heart rate and such. Goes just under the skin and is hardly noticable. if it wasn't for the scar most people wouldn't notice.
