If I were to ask you what Bill Gates is most commonly known for, your would probably say Microsoft software or his Office Suite of products such as PowerPoint, Excel, Word, Outlook and so on. However Mr. Gates is also funding some new digital technology related to birth control. That’s right right…birth control!
The “Digital” Pill
Thanks to the developers at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and funding from Bill Gates, a new ‘pill’ is being developed to hit the marketplace by 2018. The new pill is a computer chip that is implanted under the skin and is controlled by a wireless remote device. The remote is used to melt and release a synthetic (yes man made) hormone called levonorgestrel into the body. The chip can be activated or deactivated at will to allow a woman to control her contraception.
