It seemed like only yesterday (oh hang on it was) that we were talking about how scientist have created an artificial memory system that allows thoughts, memories and learned behaviour to be transferred from one brain to another. Read our article on this here. Today we see that Nano surveillance is in full swing and of course the so called “benefits” are promoted through mass media. There are no benefits here to society, only perceived benefits from a group of people who what us to believe in it. We are turning into a George Orwell novel! Our personal freedoms are slowly but surely being stripped away everyday, which has occurred over many decades. It has to happen slowly so you don’t notice it. Did you know that Britons on average are captured on CCTV around 300 times per day! It’s time to wake up and pay attention people. As a society, as a collective consciousness, we have allowed this to happen to us as a whole. If you dont like what you see…. Change the Channel, there is too much focus on doom and gloom perpetrated by propaganda machines within mass media….. Change the Channel!
A new generation of battery-free surveillance devices which can be implanted under the skin and transmit over huge distances via wireless have been developed by scientists.
Researchers are working on nano machines that could be injected into the arms of patients and then report back to doctors who are monitoring them from miles away.
They would be powered by the motion of a person walking, or even the pulse of a blood vessel, so would never stop working until the person died.
The technology could also be used in CCTV cameras attached to small flying craft which use their own motion to power themselves.
Such devices could be used by hospitals to locate patients or perhaps check if they are following their treatment plan.
But they will also be of interest to the military and the criminal justice system which is constantly on the lookout for new ways to spy on criminals.
The advancements were reported in the journal Nano Letters by Zhong Lin Wang of Georgia Tech University in the U.S.
‘It is entirely possible to drive the devices by scavenging energy from sources in the environment such as gentle airflow, vibration, sonic wave, solar, chemical, and/or thermal energy,’ he wrote.
The device would be powered by the motion of a person walking, or even the pulse of a blood vessel, so would never stop working until the person died
The device would consist of a nanogenerator which makes electricity from vibration or motion, a capacitor which stores they energy and a Bluetooth-style transmitter to end the signal.
According to Science Daily it would be able to pick up wireless signals at a distance of more than 30ft.
Earlier this year, the world’s first viable nanogenerator was unveiled by Zhong and his team.
It took six years to develop and in experiments was able to power an LED and LCD display.
At the time he said: ‘This development represents a milestone toward producing portable electronics that can be powered by body movements without the use of batteries or electrical outlets.
‘Our nanogenerators are poised to change lives in the future. Their potential is only limited by one’s imagination.’
