Edible Electronics

Would you want to swallow electronics? New research and developments might make you say… YES! Edible electronics have all sorts of potential applications and advances by researchers at MIT and Carnegie Mellon University are pushing the envelope even further. From ingestible origami robots to password pills, this week we take a look at the weird future of literal technology consumption!

We want to hear from you! What would YOUR edible electronic device do? Let us know in the comments below!

    2,500th view!

  3. dylan bellerose on December 20, 2019 at 1:22 pm

    Mine would deeply analyze what is considered a healthy cell in my body and the bots would just then go out through my whole system and destroy any type of cancer cell it can find.

    during exam, i need my brain memory to increase. so i need edible memory chips to store the studies

  5. lil hitla on December 20, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    Nanobots that make my poop constantly change colors.

    Rainbowz….

  6. Ben Parkinson on December 20, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    Internal diagnostic devices for health monitoring, targeted chemical/non chemical GI parasite removal for domesticated animals pets and cattle for instance, fertility management

  7. Leo Balderrama on December 20, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    The pill itself which will have micro nano bots that work all the way through the nervous system then into the brain which then would combine and activate a computer in our minds which will give us access to all information in the world or even creating communication between others without need or use of an actual physical laptop or even mobile device.

  8. The gaming shark on December 20, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    Cool

  9. Manasa Sandanaboina on December 20, 2019 at 1:26 pm

    How to remove that robot in body

  10. togethergutlesss on December 20, 2019 at 1:27 pm

    it would regenerate lost limbs and damaged parts of our body and even help save people who have had a heart attack and even keep our blood clean after binge eating

  11. Wolfreign Valenford on December 20, 2019 at 1:29 pm

    MAKE ME IMMORTAL

  12. Lawson Harper on December 20, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Nano bots that helped kill diseases

  13. Celebrity Cyborg Cybernaut Kerry on December 20, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    electric devices that navigate to damaged nerves or tissue to block pain by interfacing with the nerves there.

  14. iOnlyLoveForBTS on December 20, 2019 at 1:33 pm

    nanobots that can cure cancer and find if people are lying and regrow limbs

  15. Nicolas Peters on December 20, 2019 at 1:34 pm

    Imagine how much waste we could get rid of if we could eat our computers when they get old. Interesting topic

  16. General specSam on December 20, 2019 at 1:34 pm

    Nanobots that would fight of disease. And give me enhanced bone and muscle density of course.

  17. GlowingEagle on December 20, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    Implementing a chip that brings Pokemon go to my mind, fully interactive

  18. u wot m8 on December 20, 2019 at 1:37 pm

    Cyborg future here I come.

  19. dedominator on December 20, 2019 at 1:39 pm

    NOPE

  20. undecodable on December 20, 2019 at 1:41 pm

    white wave to protect us from ALL toxic radiations

  21. Jay Tiger on December 20, 2019 at 1:42 pm

    @FW:thinking you should upload more frequent cause the reason your not getting that many subs

  22. Bert Jete on December 20, 2019 at 1:43 pm

    People of the future are going to live so much more healthy and longer. I’m jelly.

  23. Clark Taylor on December 20, 2019 at 1:45 pm

    Change my voice

  24. Pedro Hernandez on December 20, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    I think if I had a edible electronic, it would be a small robot that seeks out and destroys malformed proteins dangerous to humans in specified areas

  25. Frogwell on December 20, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    My nano bot would super charge my blood, making me have super charged stamina

  26. The 7 Guardian on December 20, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    my machine or nanobot would be used self repair human tissue that is badly damaged or repair a body organ like the heart or lungs.

  27. Bart vP on December 20, 2019 at 1:50 pm

    I think my device would automatically like every new FW:Thinking video :))

  28. Jonathan Turner on December 20, 2019 at 1:51 pm

    it would give me the power to fly! 😀

  29. Capnarchie on December 20, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    forcefield

  30. Zpajro Shinigami on December 20, 2019 at 1:54 pm

    Robotic immune support system

  31. The ultimate cat lord on December 20, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    night vision robots

  32. Tim Chapelle on December 20, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    It’d be cool to have edible electronics/robots that could attach to muscle and skeletal frames (like an endoskeleton) to help increase strength/stability, particularly for people with certain problems e.g. certain elderly people

  33. The Entertainer Games and Reviews on December 20, 2019 at 1:59 pm

    It would be a robat can repare a torn part of the body inside and out

  34. Xae on December 20, 2019 at 1:59 pm

    The good that can be done with this tech is amazing. But we have to be realistic, speaking about corrupt governments and such

  35. coco pops on December 20, 2019 at 1:59 pm

    im gonna eat i tiny edible speaker so ican play music out my but.

  36. Sgt.Tony on December 20, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    No Science behind here.. My editable thing would gimme a Heads up thing that only I can see..
    Also one that improves my hearing..I’m half deaf so being able to hear like everyone else would be a dream come true..

  37. Dxpress on December 20, 2019 at 2:00 pm

    A bot that detects when you say something so mindbogglingly stupid, that it kills the host immediately.

  38. Nick Farrow on December 20, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    I would have my electronic deliver caffeine when my heart rate drops below a certain level

  39. Step Back History on December 20, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    If the future was that Toyota would go out of business, HOW WOULD WE KNOW.

  40. Amoeba on December 20, 2019 at 2:03 pm

    Nanobots that connect to our brain.

  41. Allah on December 20, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Dude ur too optimistic half the things u said have not happened yet and never will! (No hates no response pls)

  42. Matthew Theobald on December 20, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    An edible colony of nano bots that are disigned to seek out and destroy cancerous cells within the body.

  43. Areté on December 20, 2019 at 2:07 pm

    I dont want people hacking my shit literally

  44. a nufuture on December 20, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    My pill would repair damaged organ cells with stem cells. Cheers to the Future…

  45. tawfik abd elnasser on December 20, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    we should build a robot that could remove the cancer cells from our bodies

  46. Vinícius Neves da Conceição on December 20, 2019 at 2:13 pm

    My edible electronics? They would back up my memories once a day and wirelessly transmit a copy of my conscience to the cloud. Combined with negligible senescence, and also a safe copy of my DNA, this would in practice mean immortality.

  47. Jamie Godman on December 20, 2019 at 2:15 pm

    I want nano warriors that can supplement what white blood cells do but at a much faster rate. You would never get sick and could repair damage extremely fast.

  48. Edward Murphy on December 20, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    Why don’t you have 1,000,000 subs??

  49. Muzahidur Rahman on December 20, 2019 at 2:17 pm

    i just want some organic to eat. no electronics, no robot. keep my cake fresh please.

  50. Christopher Chamberlain on December 20, 2019 at 2:18 pm

    a robut which balances the bodies ph and increasing oxygen helping cancer patients
