I am doing my PhD part-time (while working at SEEK, because I'm insane) with the Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces at the University of Melbourne. The official project website is http://socialnui.unimelb.edu.au/research/insertables/
My research looks at insertables: devices that go within the human body for non-medical purposes. We coin, and define, insertables as below:
Insertables (ɪnˈsəːtɪəb(ə)l/) - N
Devices that go in, though and underneath the skin. This includes devices that an individual can insert and remove themselves and those that must be inserted by a trained professional.
