via FDA approves first digital pill to track your meds – CNET

The US Food and Drug Administration on Monday approved the first drug in the US with a digital ingestion tracking system.

Abilify MyCite, an aripiprazole tablet embedded with an ingestible sensor, uses digital tracking to record whether the medication was taken.
