Auger Loizeau’s Audio Tooth Implant

37

“The Audio Tooth Implant is a conceptual proposition intended to encourage discourse and comment on the possibilities of biotechnology and it’s potential impact on society and culture.”

The Audio Tooth Implant is a radical new concept in personal communication. A miniature audio output device and receiver are implanted into the tooth during routine dental surgery. These offer a form of electronic telepathy as the sound information resonates directly into the consciousness.

The tooth implant consists of 3 separate elements.
• A low frequency receiver (150kHz).
• A piezo electric micro vibration device.
• An electro magnetic micro generator.

A modified mobile telephone or dedicated device is used to receive the long-range signal. This is also used to fully customise the set up (receiving unwanted sound information would be akin to techno-schizophrenia). The device then transmits a low frequency signal which energises the dormant receiver (in the tooth) by magnetic near field effects. A transducer then converts this signal into low amplitude vibrations. Sound is then received into the inner ear through bone transduction.

  1. Cool, now the CIA really can send me messages through my dental work.
