internalnet

An internalnet is a network that transmits information between computing devices located inside (and perhaps on) a living body. The internalnet can be thought of as an extremely localized local area network ( LAN ), which may or may not be connected to external devices and/or networks.

As computer science and nanotechnology advance, the possibility of functional nanomedicine (the use of molecular-level devices for medical purposes, such as repair of tissue damage, or immune system support) applications becomes increasingly realistic. An internalnet might connect devices such as nanochondria ( nanomachine s within cells, either working with the cells' biochemistry or assembling physical structures), bionic implants, and wearable computer s, for example, managing the flow of data among the devices.
