Computer Chip Implants May Become a Reality.



You are at your desk and for some reason you forgot your Windows PC login password. This is a common thing, but there might be a solution in the future to never use passwords again.

With a wave of his hand, Amal Graafstra, a 29-year-old entrepreneur based in Vancouver, Canada, opens his front door. With another, he logs onto his computer.

Tiny radio frequency identification (RFID) computer chips inserted into Graafstra's hands make it all possible.

"I just don't want to be without access to the things that I need to get access to. In the worst case scenario, if I'm in the alley naked, I want to still be able to get in (my house)," Graafstra said in an interview in New York, where he is promoting the technology. "RFID is for me."

The computer chips, which cost about $2, interact with a device installed in computers and other electronics. The chips are activated when they come within 3 inches of a so-called reader, which scans the data on the chips. The "reader" devices are available for as little as $50 dollars.

Graafstra said at least 20 of his tech-savvy pals have RFID implants.


Rest of the sotry here

I dont want any kind of chips under my skin. Its all coming to one thing, so they can track people and shit.

Or they can chop off your hand and use it to get in your crib. Instead of "give me your keys" it will be "cut off your hand"

Also what if you are in an accident or away from home and want your freind to go in your computer/house, you can't even give them the passy/key..
