Having trouble remembering all those passwords for all those tablets, smartphones and apps?

Well, Motorola may have the solution – just pop a pill.

Motorola Mobility’s head of advanced technology and projects group, Regina Dugan, unveiled its latest concept at the All Things Digital conference in California on Thursday – and while it’s still in the gestation phase, so to speak, it could point to the future.

The pill in question is no ordinary tablet – it contains a tiny chip but no battery – instead it gets its power from the acids in your stomach.

According to Geek南京夜网, the pill will send out an 18-bit authentication signal, which your device will pick up and use in lieu of a password.

The pill, which Motorola calls “the authentication vitamin”, has reportedly been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Of course, the experimental technology isn’t ready yet but you can check out a video of it on Slate南京夜网.

If you don’t have the stomach for the pill, then how about a tattoo?

The company, owned by Google, showed off another authentication device at the conference – a tattoo with a chip that, like the pill, sends out a signal that your smartphone or tablet will pick up.

But the tattoo is more a sticker that you place on your wrist and won’t be inked into your body.

In the future, both the pill and tattoo could serve other purposes – such as opening your front door or starting your car.
