Panoptica: The Total Surveillance Pill

It used to be that believing that the authorities had implanted a surveillance device in your body would be enough to get you a schizophrenia diagnosis.  Today, it's an FDA-approved treatment for schizophrenia.

"When the smart pill enters the stomach, it begins communicating with a patch worn on the patient's arm. The patch records and time-stamps the information from the sensor and collects other information, and then relays it to patients on a mobile phone or other Bluetooth-enabled device."  And then on to doctors. And possibly the courts. Or law enforcement.

Come on, don't be paranoid.
