No More Annoying Digestion

London’s The Independent reported in January that Dean Kamen (who invented the Segway, a standing, battery-powered scooter) had developed, along with a Pennsylvania medical team, what seems to work as a “reverse feeding tube” to vacuum out up to 30 percent of any food in the stomach before it’s digested and converted into calories. After installation of the stomach “port,” a diner could operate the device without daily medical help.
