Players swallow a capsule that contains a telemetry system, transmitting device and battery. While in the gastrointestinal tract, a crystal sensor vibrates at a frequency relative to the temperature of the body surrounding it. This produces a signal, harmless to the body, that can be picked up by an external data recorder. The pill stays in the body for 24 hours or more and the battery works for about seven days. The pills cost around $30 each, depending on volume purchased.
