Maintaining complicated passwords is imperative if you want to avoid getting hacked, but memorizing them can be a daunting task. Enter Motorola’s Edible Password Pill, which is exactly as dystopian as it sounds. Swallowed once daily, the pill consists of a tiny chip that uses the acid in your stomach to power it on. Once activated, it emits a specific 18-bit EKG-like signal that can be detected by your phone or computer, essentially turning your body into a password. Though the pill has cleared the major hurdle of acquiring FDA approval, it’s not scheduled to hit shelves anytime soon. Motorola, however, is owned by Google, so perhaps sometime in the future, logging in to Gmail will be as easy as swallowing a pill.
