Tooth Phone

A prototype radio device designed to fit inside a human tooth and provide covert mobile phone communications has been created by two UK students.

The device currently consists of a digital radio receiver that converts radio signals into sound and a tiny vibrating component, which conveys sound to the wearer’s inner ear through bone vibrations.

Inventors James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau of the Royal College of Art in London say the tiny receiver could be configured to receive sound from an external device, such as a mobile phone, a radio or a computer.

They also say it would be relatively simple to fit the gadget with a microphone, to allow it to return a radio signal to another device.”
