A new remote controlled contraceptive chip is being developed at the minute. But Twitter's already voiced its concerns...and we're a little worried too.

Ever wondered what the next big contraception invention might be? Well, wonder no more as the contraceptive chip is on its way.

Yes, we're talking about a microchip.

The contraception is designed to be implanted under the skin, giving out hormones to prevent the wearer from getting pregnant for 16 years and can be switched off when it's no longer needed with a wireless remote control.

It sounds too sci-fi to be true, right? But you'd be wrong...

Researchers in Massachusetts have come up with the invention for the 'convenience factor' with the fact it can be turned off at the touch of the button for family planning.

The only question we have is: what if someone else were to turn the chip off remotely without our knowledge?

Now, that's not very convenient is it?

Needless to say, it's been the talk of the town on Twitter:




Backed by Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, the technology will undergo pre-clinical testing in the US next year with further investigations set to sort out the little obstacle of potential cyber hacking (?!) and will be available from 2018.
