Paying for merchandise with a implanted RFID chip

Posted by geeknews at 12:06 PM on November 27, 2003

I knew it was only a matter of time before someone decided to try and do this. Can you imagine someone being so stupid as to have a RFID chop implanted into them. Talk about being able to be tracked and scanned anyplace you went without knowing about it. I think average people will think twice before ever considering this. [Wired]

    You are overestimating the average people when you say they will think twice about it… On the contrary I think that the average people will line up for it in droves all in the name of “fighting terrorism”.
