Ever loved a song so much you wish you could just absorb it into your being? If so, keep reading.
Introducing Audiopill, the sound system you can swallow. Audiopill is a tiny ingestible device which works to create an internal concert within the brave devourer (undoubtedly the deepest beats you will ever experience).
Upon swallowing the pill, it settles in your gastrointestinal tract, creating a temporary sharp and intense pain in the user’s abdomen. The vibration of the GI tract is being called the “BodyBass.” The musical component, the “UltraTreble,” uses low frequency ultrasound waves which modulate as they travel throughout the body. This invention actually creates a concert only the user can hear from the inside. This lasts for 10 hours until the battery dies, and the pill is excreted naturally. It cannot be turned off once ingested. The pill is 35mm and 8 grams, slightly smaller than an adult thumb.
Czech native and concept artist Jan Poope (or Strmiska) was the brain behind the device. He had this to say about his invention:
“[Audiopill will] make you feel like you are standing in the middle of a concert hall with a powerful audio system inside your body. Or like you are standing in a factory workshop full of metal working machines and ramming an impact drill in your stomach. The only difference is there’s absolute silence all around you and you are experiencing the music in perfect privacy and only from the inside.”
The preset beats for the prototypes are Grinderman’s “No Pussy Blues,” Die Antwoord’s “I Fink U Freeky” and M.I.A.’s “Bad Girls.”
However, this system does not yet have the approval of the Italian Ministry of Health.
In addition, after consulting multiple doctors, Strmiska was told that consumers should “never ever swallow anything like this.”
“Therefore, everything is at the user’s own risk,” Strmiska said. “The author waives all responsibility for any potential health problems.” So the fact that the Indiegogo project is having trouble finding funding is less than surprising.
