Warning, do not install it yourself!

The basic set-up requires the removal of a tooth, a little surgery, but the effect will be a lot of fun. Step one: make a tooth that is both a battery, antenna, sensor and micro computer, cote it in ceramic and make it look like the real thing, then have it installed. Create a micro generator, centrifugal turbine I think there called, where fluid passes through one side spins the blade and electricity is formed. On both ends of the generator place sensors, I’ll get back to the sensors. Get your local MD to bypass an artery, and tie in the generator. Run a micro wire to the tooth to store power and run the computer. Run a second small wire to your ear nerve for listening. Concept, the blood powers the generator, the tooth holds power, processes and relays information to your ears. It can be operated by voice command or maybe clicking your teeth. But you may ask, what in the hell for? It could monitor the blood of diabetics; the tooth could even transmit an SOS to the users home phone if there was unstable levels of insulin. It could be a real cool radio or cell phone. You could even monitor heart problems. Sensors on both sides would insure blood pressure. Even do periodic white blood cell and, platelets counts. I bet special Ops could use this idea. Or am I just baked?

Tooth radio receiver http://www.uri-geller.com/nscientist.htm
Here's an article on a radio RECEIVER patent by a colleague of that old fraud Uri Geller. [pfperry, Jul 20 2002, last modified Oct 04 2004]

       "they're" not "there".

       They're not there, I guess.   

       What's a 'radiodone'?

       the idea of a little radio hard wired into my tooth sounds cool until you described the process of installing it. somehow, i don't think i'd want all thatstuff being done in my mouth. for the purposes you listed, current proceedures seem less intrusive. it's a great concept, but i'm going to withhold my vote for awhile.

       [emtae] You do realize everyone's GPS tracker tooth (third tooth from the back on the left) works very similar to this? Just kidding, don't go for the vice grips.

       Thanks Blissmiss, but I... oops my tooth is ringing, got to go.

       Phoenix, a radiodone is term used by meteorologists, the transmitter you find inside weather balloons.

       emtae: The whole of the halfbakery is about ideas (see help text). 'halfbakery: idea' is for ideas that are about the structure of ideas on the halfbakery.

       [emtae] Odd that Google doesn't think so. Could you post a link?

       No, that's a radiosonde.

       Think there was a Gilligan's Island episode where one of Gilligan's fillings was receiving radio stations.

       Waug-, I am impressed. It is "Sonde". I should have known that, after all I found one in Oregon once. But my tooth is still a "done", because I already said it is, but if I did change the name, then would you have one installed?
emtae, May 05 2002
  

       I saw a documentary on someone who supposedly installed a radio inside his penis, but had to remove it because when the batteries died, he needed surgeory... Kind of the same concept I guess.
