  • embeddable, n.

    Andy Goodman, Fjord, 2013:

    Embeddables will have significant consequences for the delivery of digital services as monolithic screen-focused devices start to be enhanced with distributed computation. A more ambient kind of experience in which sensors capture information about us and feed that information into systems quietly working away in the background will emerge. Use in initial domains such as healthcare and fitness will extend further to information, communications, entertainment, socialising, learning, work, self-actuation. Virtually any human activity we can think of is going to be modified and amplified with an invisible mesh of data and processing that we will drift through obliviously.

    Federal Communications Commission:

    Embeddables are miniature devices that are actually inserted under the skin or deeper into the body. A heart pacemaker is one kind of embeddable device. In the future, embeddables may use nanotechnology and be so tiny that doctors would simply “inject” them into our bodies. Some promising applications in this area could help diabetes patients monitor their blood sugar levels reliably and automatically, without the need to prick their fingers or otherwise draw blood.
