The next robotic pill that can deliver drugs: intelligent pill

Philips has now developed an innovative pill that can deliver medications in a specific part of the body. This could be one of the first therapeutic robotic pills if it makes it to the market. This iPill doesn't appear to have a camera, but it has built-in sensors to let it know when to release the drug. I wish I was still at MIT designing and creating prototypes of different medical devices.
