Computer Chips In Humans

Can you imagine having a computer chip embedded in your hand? Some people in this article do.
Quick Summary:
  • People can have radio frequency identification (RFID) chips put into their hands.
  • The chips can be used to store passwords for your computer and interact with other electronics, such as electronic opening doors.
  • Surgeons, veterinarians, and tattoo artists can insert the chips into people.

My $0.02: This is a bad idea. I'll admit that there is convenience in it. But come on. How lazy have we gotten? There is danger. If someone wanted to get into your house or open truly valuable files, they could just chop off your hand. That might sound a little extreme, but I'm a worst case scenario person.
