but does it have vibrate? A prototype tooth implant which picks up digital signals from radios and mobile phones goes on show at the Science Museum in London this week.

Hey if Gilligan's Island taught us anything, isn't it that radios in your head are notoriously unreliable?

Sure, it'll cause brain cancer, but I want one! But it had better have an OFF switch. One more step toward cyborgification.

I'll get one of my front teeth replaced, and my girlfriend will love me forever.

who needs an off switch when you can just make a tinfoil hat?

higher rez pik. I wanna know how the sound quality is (or could be) so I can listen to music or whatever else I feel like without anyone else having a clue...Rig it with a handheld PC, 802.11/3G, decent TTS, google and their new voice interface...bring on cyborgification!

Damn, and I just had a crown put in this morning. If I'd known this was coming, I would have waited....

It's just an old idea made into a non-working mock up by a couple of art students. Somehow that's managed to pass for news/science.

Next week I'm unveiling my new invention, a pocket fusion reactor. It won't actually produce any power, but I think you'll agree it's a really great idea and I'll make sure it has a couple of pretty flashing lights.

Better than a Bone Phone! (A variation.) Apparently secretive prospectors like them on their metal detectors. Can't find the 1970s collarbone model anywhere.
