Get chipped, then charge without plastic
— you are the card
Here's the pitch... to the young ones.
Beautiful club-goers have a problem:
If you're going to wear a halter top and micro-skirt,
there's not much of anywhere to put a wallet.
And who wants to carry a purse when you're there to dance?
Luckily, a company called VeriChip this year unveiled a solution
based on radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology.
The Government will soon control us all, what we can sell or buy.
This is freaky, credit under the skin.
It's a slender glass capsule about as long as a dime is wide.
Inside sits a computer chip, which stores a unique code that can identify
an individual — sort of an electronic Social Security number.
The capsule also holds a tiny antenna, which can radio that code
to a receiver many feet away.
Now read this one.
Another company is taking the idea of implanted radio-enabled
chips to a different level. Cyberkinetics of Foxborough, Mass.,
calls itself "a leader in the rapidly emerging field of brain computer interfaces."
The company makes BrainGate — which, despite the 1974 analogies here,
is not a reference to a scandal involving someone's brain.
When implanted in a person's brain,
the device can allow that person to control a computer just by thinking.
It is essentially a mouse moved by brain waves.
Last month, the company got federal approval to implant the chips in five
paralyzed people as a test.
My thoughts are Where are we going with this?? Scary, Scary,
Scary and it not Halloween yet.
