|"I don't know if you have seen it, but in the movie "Bait" with Jamie Foxx, there is a tracking/recording device implanted in his jaw that is actively monitored by the NSA.

|"My sister-in-law has a cochlear implant - a hearing aid that uses electrodes attached to the cochlea (inner ear) to stimulate the auditory nerve directly, so no mechanical vibration is necessary. The electrodes come to a small magentic plate beneath the skin behind her ear. The rest of the hearing aid is a small case containing the microphone, battery, amplifier, signal processing system, and a magnetic probe that clings to the subcutaneous plate and uses magnetic fields to energize the electrodes.
Not a full communication system, but it'd make a dandy "earphone" for a silent comm system.
