RFID implant photos

We’ve covered RFID implants on BME in the past, but it seems like more and more DIY implants and active projects are going on these days. Here’s a photo of Rob at MetaFlesh in Brighton, England putting one in via injection (as well as the autoclaved implant, and the electronics being used to control home access using it).

    I’m curious how you charge these up ? it has to be too small to charge on kinetics ?

    You don’t have to charge the tags; the way the work is basically like this: the RFID reader (the part that’s attached to the door) continually emits radio waves. The tag (the part that’s in your hand) absorbs the energy of these waves, then re-emits this energy in a specific pattern that encodes the tag’s unique serial number. When the reader picks up this signal, it knws the serial number of the nearby tag. This absorbing and reemitting is all done with passive components that don’t require an external power source.

    (I implanted a tag into my hand in December, but haven’t submitted pictures yet because my door-opening mechanism still has a few bugs. Also I don’t have an IAM account.)

    i’m seriously considering putting one of these in my hand. i’ve done a lot of reading and research, but don’t know if I can do what it takes to make everything work…ie setting up the RFID readers and such. I’m pretty damn geeky, but this seems a little over my head, but I still want to do it. If anyone has any info and would like to help me 🙂 shoot me an IM or email.. cellfire AT gmail DOT com

    good now but not in the future when everyone has them and people will figure out how to cheat them

    It’s the same with regular keys now, except you couldn’t lose this unless you had a VERY bad accident or cut it off on purpose.

    I have one of these in my hand as well. I made a working RFID Lockbox for an art project. It is currently in possion of zpira as he tours around. Had some malfunctions with the box atm. But the implant is doing fine.

    Is there contact info available for Rob? From what I understood, these tags could not be autoclaved.

  2. WARNING…This sounds like something out of the Bible in the book of Revelations “666 THE MARK OF THE BEAST”.Think about it…This product can easily be marketed as a promotion tool deceiving you into wanting to get this device.And the way they’ll do this;you’ll willingly and literally give up your privacy by allowing yourself the possibility of being tracked and put into a cashless society .They’ll say it will protect your children from kidnappers,protect your country from terrorist,& protect you from identity theft.And anyone who opposes this will sound like the bad guy…Yes even the christen will sound like a fundamentalist, But hey…How many people read there bibles and listen to christens anyway? 666 this is where the futures headed.(P.S he even got it in his right hand)
