White Paper: 18th Century Technology for Modern Medical IoT
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 foundational 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? Read this white paper to discover the journey of this fascinating technology.
In this white paper, you will learn how to:
An enthralling history of engineering ingenuity
How batteries work
How lessons of the past can inform even the most modern technologies, including IoT
