Designed by James Auger, the audio tooth implant is a new concept in communications. 'It allows useful information to be sent to you in secret wherever you are and whenever you need it. A surgeon implants a device into a tooth, the data is received from a mobile phone, radio or computer vibrations which resonates through your jawbone to your inner ear. Only you can hear the information.' Currently, the implant only exists in concept form.
