A Czech artist has developed apill designed to blast your guts with vibrations to simulate an internal intestinal rave. Why? Were not sure either.
The AudioPill is an electroniccontraption that you swallow to give you a unique feeling of restlessness, amazement and elation. Once inside your body, it will bump out vibrations for 10 hours with no way of turning it off. You adjust the beats per minute between 95, 130 or 143 using a magnet thatyou place against the outside of the body. It also comes in two colors and features a flashing LED, although that probably wont matter too much when its floating around your intestinal tract.
The experimental art device pill was developed by Czech artist Jan Strmiska, under the alias Jan Poope. According to his website, Strmiska was the editor-in-chief of the Czech edition of T3 Magazine and part of the editorial team at Maxim magazine, before turning his attention to this weird Frankenstein’s monster of tech, medicine, and partying.
Strmiska used a crowdfunding page to rustle some pennies together, which has since closed after it failed quite considerably to reach its 150,000 ($167,472) target.
However, if you thought this self-described Techno party you can’t escape sounds pretty dangerous,youre probably right. Strmiska himself issued a staunch warning for his innard-blasting pill:
Swallowing this electronic capsule is based on the same principle as the medically approved capsule endoscopy. However, this is an experimental art device. During development of the device, many doctors and four polymer experts who were consulted on encasement materials, warned the author ‘to never ever swallow anything like this.'”
It continues: Therefore, everything is at the users own risk. The author waives all responsibility for any potential health problems. It is also strongly recommended that you inspect your faeces to be sure the device has made it through and out safely (in approx. 48 hours).
So, although many of the worlds greatest experiences and discoveries have been found with a healthy dose of devil may care curiosity, we really dont recommend you try this.
