Autodesk and implant technology..
show user profile  ScotlandDave
Was sitting on the throne reading last months copy of New Scientist ( as you do ) when i came across ( not literally ) the following article:

Autodesk have been shoving bits of technology into cadavers in a bid to test out interfacing and operability of devices functioning under the skin..

Sure we`ve all heard of this sort of stuff before, but on reading the article I had to do a double-take upon seeing the name Autodesk.

That is all :)

So that's where all the subscription money goes to.

Oh man, can you imagine how annoying (and possibly incredibly painful) overheating a device would be? Surgery for upgrading your sim plan doesn't sound awesome either.

I'm still waiting on more advanced HUD type glasses to be mainstream. And for them not to be advertised by hipsters, that'd be nice. Honestly, Google... the hell, man?

I'm totally going to merge the product of a company known for producing crash-prone bloatware into my existence! Let's get this shit rolling!

If you hit the link to Autodesk in the article itself you`ll notice it takes you to the Autodesk Research site, which is obviously a different arm of the company itself..

But if they can`t iron the bugs out of a piece of software that costs several thousand pounds/dollars/euros/whatever, after numerous years and versions, i`d say you`d be right to have nagging concerns about sticking their product inside your body :)

Seems a strangely vague or silly piece of research in itself anyway, not entirely sure what the aim was, other than to `see if buttons still work` when a device is implanted under the skin, and hasn`t all this been done to death already..
