It's a very interesting talk, overall. The speaker is not a pro and tends to fade in and out, and the talk becomes a bit long and somewhat ponderous as a result. But the good stuff in the talk is very cool. Implantable wireless glucose meters in an RFID chip. Implantable magnets to give people a way to directly sense electricity and magnetism. A guy who wants a bone hearing aid implant that can hook up to a cell phone. Also a fair bit of interesting commentary on society, where certain medical procedures (like, say, breast implants) are perfectly OK, but as soon as you start getting silicone devil horns implanted... now you're over the line!
