18th Century Technology For Modern Medical IoT

How dissecting a frog led to an ingestible IoT edge device.

Back in 1790, Luigi Galvani was dissecting a frog and noticed that he could cause its leg to move when touching a nerve with two probes. He called this phenomenon “animal electricity.” This concept was soon refined over time to become the voltaic cell, the foundation concept of the potato clock, fondly known by all engineers. Who knew that this cell would be leveraged to create an ingestible IoT edge device used to monitor health and potentially diagnose disease today?
