Announcing the iPancreas

A friend of mine (Martyn Green) decided he could help out with the marketing of the Microryza project. One of the possible applications of this project is to replace biological control systems in the human body, for example replacing glucose detection and insulin secretion with a computer. The image below shows one possible application where the pancreas has been replaced by a Sinclair ZX81. Introducing the iPancreas:

Battery life might be a problem but the daily replacement of the 9v DC battery required to power the ZX81 could be easily rendered with a Kangaroo like pouch inserted into the torso area enabling easy access. The software would be written in ZX81 Sinclair Basic allowing not only reliable control of glucose levels in the patient but also optional game playing, such as 3D Monster Maze or Frogger, via an external monitor connector.
