An article from a professor of psychology describes a type of so-called “ radio-wave, auditory, assaultive. transmitting (RAAT) implants,” which is essentially a covert listening device, and it can be implanted into and stay in human ear canal as a remote listening device.
The article contains some very detailed descriptions of such “spying ear bug” with case studies and victims’ reports. The descriptions include (full details see the article link above):
The purpose of these implants is the use of electromagnetism in a communication device which can act as a transducer. The input typically ranges from two to seven megahertz (MHz) at low intensity. According to reports about individuals who have described them, the input is described as sound resembling that which a commercial radio might provide.
The device would be invisible by an observer, given that the cases have not revealed others' mentioning that they noticed them. Because the persons have not had implantation via invasive surgery, their implied location would be internal but easily reachable. Their function would indicate placement in the ear canal, near the tympanic membrane or ear drum. Transmission of electromagnetism would be two-way, meaning that the transducers act as both receivers and transmitters.
This is certainly beyond the medical implants like cochlear devices or detectors working in and powered by human body which can transmit only to nearby machines. This device described is long-ranged and seems to be self-powered, almost like a micro mobile phone. The author mentioned that oftentimes the claim of existence of such device would be considered as paranoia or schizophrenia, etc., yet the article have very detailed case studies described and overall seems to support the existence of such device. Also people in the case studies making such claims of the device and I wonder how possible/impossible are they. The claims and discussions from the article include:
The accounts by case study subjects imply certain characteristics of the RAAT implants that involve their location, probable operation, structure and materials. The device would be invisible by an observer, given that the cases have not revealed others' mentioning that they noticed them. Because the persons have not had implantation via invasive surgery, their implied location would be internal but easily reachable. Their function would indicate placement in the ear canal, near the tympanic membrane or ear drum.
The conditions under which RAAT implants are placed in someone's ears are described as follows. Because most implantation seems to occur without the victim's awareness, this information has been provided by radio operators. The accounts seem consistent in describing the typical conditions for implanting as involving general anesthesia during surgery for another purpose. ...
The invisibility of the implants without an otoscope implies that they do not have batteries or other external power source. They would need to draw power from the person's own life systems including the neurological system. How this energy source works has puzzled the case study subjects, but the ruses have suggested such outlandish mechanisms as power directed from Defense Department satellites enabling the use of implants as emitters for spying purposes.
Hence, by scientific principles and current technology, do such device possibly exist, or is it totally the product of delusions? Please don’t just claim the absurdity or give joking/ridiculing comments; instead some scientific arguments are needed.
