Air Force to roll out implanted headset device for TEETH dubbed 'molar mics' that will allow hands-free radio calls that transmit sound using the jaw bone
2018-09-12
[MAIL] The United States Air Force will soon roll out a unique communications system that will be implanted on soldiers' back teeth.

Sonitus Technologies recently announced their $10million contract with the Department of Defense, which will allow them to continue through their second phase of developing the 'Molar Mic' for the Air Force.

'The innovative two-way, personal communication system fits a miniaturized traditional headset into a device that clips to a user's back teeth,' according to the California-based company.

#5  Remember the old paper half-pint cartons? Some had aluminum foil ribbon seals for fruit drinks. Hit a amalgam filling with that!

#4  The old silver amalgam dental fillings created a point-contact galvanic reaction

HA, chewing aluminum gum wrappers.
Shocking!

#3  Nothing new. The old silver amalgam dental fillings created a point-contact galvanic reaction between two tooth fillings and saliva. Acted as a semiconductor of sorts.

Let you listen to Ozzie and Harriet if you lived close enough to an AM broadcast transmitter.

When we were kids, we always thought it would be pretty neat to make that a two-way communications system.

Of course, we were serious nerds.
