A breakthrough in wireless power has enabled the creation of a tiny medical implant, no larger than a grain of rice, that could be used as a pacemaker or in place of drugs.

The Stanford Engineering teambehind the new tech was led by Assistant Professor Ada Poon, and the great advance isn't actually the size of the electronic device it's the way that device is powered. Even the smallest implants out there now need power, and that generally means a battery after all, you don't want to have to run a wire into your body, though that is an option. And when the battery runs out, the device must be removed or replaced. Providing the power wirelessly is a great idea, but in practice the tissues of the body tend to reflect or absorb electromagnetic waves like Wi-Fi and microwaves that could otherwise transfer power to a small device.  

Poon's team managed to engineer a special type of wave that travels just fine though the body, yet can be picked up by an antenna. This radiation, harmless at the levels used, can reliably power or charge a device, making the inclusion of a battery unnecessary. The result is what you see above: An implant smaller than a grain of rice except extra-small grains, of course.
