At first glance this post seems to be about a pill that makes you smarter. Unfortunately for all the idiots out there its actually about a pill(the smart pill) that travels through your digestive system. Its function is gastrointestinal motility testing. It is ingested by the patient, then doctors are able to view any abnormal contractions that are happening in your bowels.
Below is a video of Jack Semler the chief technology officer at Smartpill Corporation explaining the process used to create the pills.
