Weight Loss Pill That Is Actually a Balloon?

I just came across this article about a weight loss "pill" that is actually a small balloon. Basically you swallow it and a doctor inflates it and it's supposed to take up room in your stomach so you don't eat as much. I guess it's probably safer and less invasive than gastric bypass surgery.

It can last up to 3 months. When it's time to take them out a doctor deflates it and pulls it out through your mouth.

What do you guys think? Would you try something like this?
