The BBC has an interesting story about a poor woman who had the remote-control device for her brian implant stolen.
The woman has a brain implant that provides tiny electrical pulses to a part of her brain. She turns it off with a remote control when she wants to sleep. With the device on, she can only sleep 3-4 hours per night.
She had the remote control device in her handbag, but it was stolen a few days before Christmas. Police are appealing for the device’s return. (It’s probably in a dumpster somewhere.)
I’m kind of surprised that the hospital just can’t make another one — and that they only gave her one — and that she had it in her handbag.
Kind of a wild story about the failure to think through security issues.
