A pill with a chip?

I wasn't sure where to post this, perhaps if we had an "Unnatural Aproach" forum or maybe the humor forum would also be good except I think these people are serious (which makes it not so funny).

In MS, the immune system attacks myelin, the fatty sheath that protects the cells of the central nervous system.

As a result, nerve signals get slowed or blocked, causing difficulties in movement and coordination, ...

I know this is in the final leg of testing as the first oral for MS but because it is an approved drug for a different indication, it can be used off label as an injection.
