    Who would want to be micro chipped? Many, apparently. Some people are begging for a micro chip to be implanted in their body – one that could do everything a smartphone can do and more.“I am so ready,” says Charlene Li. She’s a long-time author and principal analyst at the Altimeter Group. This week, science fiction came to the heartland when a small Wisconsin company announced that it would begin implanting microchips into its employee’s hands. The company had more than 50 volunteers too. The company sold the implantation to their employees as a convenience for them to ditch the...

    Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk on Thursday confirmed plans for his newest company, called Neuralink Corp., revealing he will be the chief executive of a startup that aims to merge computers with brains so humans could one day engage in “consensual telepathy.” Speaking to writer Tim Urban on the explainer website Wait but Why, Mr. Musk confirmed a Wall Street Journal report last month that Neuralink aims to implant a tiny brain...

    A 4-year-old with autism is back with her parents after she was saved from almost drowning in a creek. Officials say the little girl, Melody, had wandered away from home and accidentally fell into the creek. The mother told KDAF she had left for work, and her husband did not realize the little girl had left the home. "She went out on an adventure. She's likes to do that. She's got autism, and we just found out about it. She just likes to wander off and do her own thing sometimes," said Melody's mother. Thanks to the help of two...

    The research team headed by Disney researchers with Carnegie Mellon and MIT has figured out a way to boost the speed and accuracy of monitoring wireless and non-battery RFID tags. They have used the finding to make interactive objects that would not need power source, as well as wireless pong controllers using an edition of the tech inside Disney's RFID-powered MagicBands. The discovery reults published as "RapID: A Framework for Fabricating Low-Latency Interactive Objects with RFID Tags," says that the system features more interesting latent functions for the inactive RFID system that depends on the control of an external drive....

    Now thanks to implanted RFID chips the size of a rice grain, employees who work at a new high-tech office campus in Sweden called Epicenter can wave their hands to open doors and operate machinery like Jedi masters using the Force. "We want to be able to understand this technology before big corporates and big governments come to us and say everyone should get chipped -- the tax authority chip, the Google or Facebook chip," Sjoblad told the BBC.

    If you have a recently issued credit or debit card, there is a very good chance it has an RFID chip in it that will transmit your card information to any nearby reader. Many of the newer model smartphones are RFID enabled and make it possible for someone standing next to you in line at the grocery store or at the train station to steal your identity and your money. Just wanted to raise awareness of this risk and create an opportunity to share ideas on how to mitigate this risk. I disabled the chip in my cards with a...

    As a hardcore baseball guy, I often wonder why people needlessly waste their time on all those other, lesser sports. But I suppose everyone has a right to their insane opinions. In any case, football fans may want to keep an eye on this development: The NFL announced this week that it will be using RFID tracking chips on players during select games in the 2014 season. The high-tech chips — RFID stands for radio-frequency identification — will generate precise positioning data on each player on every play. Football Uniforms Throughout History For the initial rollout, the RFID system will...

    DOJ requesting $2 million for ‘Gun Safety Technology’ grants Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday that gun tracking bracelets are something the Justice Department (DOJ) wants to “explore” as part of its gun control efforts. When discussing gun violence prevention programs within the DOJ, Holder told a House appropriations subcommittee that his agency is looking into technological innovations. “I think that one of the things that we learned when we were trying to get passed those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I had a meeting with a group of technology people and we talked about...

    These credit cards are dinosaurs. Every credit card in the U.S. will be replaced by October 2015 with new cards that contain the chip-and-PIN technology that the rest of the world has had for years, according to the Wall Street Journal. Both Visa and MasterCard are committed to the switch, which will render extinct the plastic in your wallets and purses right now. No more black magnetic stripes; no more signing on the dotted line. Americans who have traveled to Europe in recent years will know that the U.S.'s credit card system is embarrassingly old-fashioned by comparison. It's often difficult...

    After spotting a police car with two huge boxes on its trunk — that turned out to be license-plate-reading cameras — a man in New Jersey became obsessed with the loss of privacy for vehicles on American roads. (He’s not the only one.) The man, who goes by the Internet handle “Puking Monkey,” did an analysis of the many ways his car could be tracked and stumbled upon something rather interesting: his E-ZPass, which he obtained for the purpose of paying tolls, was being used to track his car in unexpected places, far away from any toll booths.

    The San Antonio, Calif., high school student kicked out for refusing to wear an ID badge with a computer chip is being allowed to return to class. Last fall, Andrea Hernandez refused to wear the badge that uses radio frequency identification technology to track students. Hernandez sued the school district, saying it violated her religious liberty, reminding her of the biblical "mark of the beast." The school district said the badges helped count students and increased state funding. The Northside Independent School District has now decided to scrap the RFID program, prompting Hernandez to drop the suit. She's expected to...

    The rise of ‘smart gun’ technology, which utilizes an RFID interface to allow for both the government and the manufacturer to remotely render the gun useless at any time, is the upcoming new tactic used by anti-Constitution control freaks in the effort to take away legal firearms from the hands of law-abiding citizens.(VIDEO-AT-LINK) And these smart guns are coming much sooner than you think.

    We have learned today that the Vatican has decided to use an ID card that has a micro-chip device embedded inside the card that is capable of being used as a tracking device. This card will be given to clergy and employees. A source inside the Vatican acknowledged that they have been thinking about this for years, but declined to give any details of the discussions. The common name for such devices is RFID or Radio Frequency Identification devices. The issuance of these devices will probably take place on or about Jan. 1, 2013. The Vatican sees the need for...

    A recent case, Hernandez v. Northside Independent School District et al., highlights the privacy concerns that technology can bring to the modern classroom. In order to register attendance for each student when the bell rings, one magnet school has given all of its students radio frequency identification device (RFID) chipped identification cards. These cards track student movements throughout the building–excluding the bathrooms, of course. One student, Andrea Hernandez, objected to her tagging on religious grounds, citing the Book of Revelation. She could have been expelled for refusing to wear her assigned RFID badge. Instead, according to Jim Forsyth with WOAI...

The new identification tags are designed to help the district improve safety by locating students at any time, while on campus, at John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School. RFID tags are also supposed to help with attendance by counting students more accurately as the enter the building. District spokesman Pasqual Gonzalez...

    In the video clip below, Katherine Albrecht, author of the book "Spy Chips" explains how microchips work, and how RFID tracking is used in all kinds of products, and then explains how embedded microchips work in the body. Watch carefully near the end of the clip, when Joe Biden, a Senator at the time asks Justice John Roberts at a Confirmation Hearing: "Can a miniature tag be implanted into a human body to track his every movement? You will rule on that, mark my words, before your tenure is over." This statement by Biden clearly exposes the heart of the...
