This is clearly the future of medicine. As computer miniaturization continues, drinkable computers will become more and more common. Have cancer? Drink a glass of computers that make their way to the tumor and cut it out. Have plaque buildup in the arteries? Drink a few computers that make their way to the artery and reduce the plaque. Just as we look with horror at surgery without anesthesia, future generations will look at most surgery with a similar horror.
