You might be taking your vitamins and supplements now, but in time, those may not be enough to power you. To boost your efficiency levels, you may have to be microchipped. One company is already selling chips that you can implant on your own through injections or surgical means. Welcome to the future.
Seattle-based Dangerous Things, which claims to have had over 14 years of expertise in chip implants, sells RFID, NFC, and NTAG chips you can “install” by entering a syringe or 5mm-diameter needle into your body.
When inserted, the implants can be used as electronic keys to open doors, for quick verifications so you never have to remember a password again, or to share information like your payment details.
As spotted by Core77, there’s a larger NTAG chip called the ‘flexMN Magic’ that can only be inserted into your body by slicing your hand so it can be fitted under your skin. The chip comes with two LED modules—or “blinkies”—to have you flickering like a human cyborg.
Dangerous Things suggests implanting this version through “professional installation,” but those who prefer DIY can also purchase an anesthetic numbing gel or a Pain Management Kit from the website. However, it’s important to note that the flexMN transponder “has not been tested or certified by any regulatory agency for implantation or use inside the human body,” and the company urges to “install” it “strictly at your own risk.”
The company has shared some photos that demonstrate how to implant the chips yourself, but be warned as they can be quite gruesome. You can find out more here.
As for us, we’re far too content fuelling our lifestyle with a diet of fruits and vegetables.
