Australia Becomes First Country To Begin MicrochippingIts Public.
Australia is to become the first country inthe world to microchip its public.
NBC news predicted that all Americans wouldbe microchipped by 2017, but it seems Australia may have beaten them to the post.
These idiots must be some of the most stupidpeople alive.
Au reports: It may sound like sci-fi,but hundreds of Australians are turning themselves into super-humans who can unlock doors, turnon lights and log into computers with a wave of the hand.
Shanti Korporaal, from Sydney, is at the centreof the phenomenon after having two implants inserted under her skin.
Now she can get into work and her car withoutcarrying a card or keys, and says her ultimate goal is to completely do away with her walletand cards.
�You could set up your life so you neverhave to worry about any password or PINs� she told news.
�It�s the same technology as Paypass,so I�m hoping you�ll be able to pay for things with it.
With Opal you get a unique identificationnumber that could be programmed into the chip.
Any door with a swipe card.
it could openyour computer, photocopier.
Loyalty cards for shops are just another thingfor your wallet.
� The microchips, which are the size of a grainof rice, can act like a business card and transfer contact details to smartphones, andhold complex medical data.
Shanti has had some messages from ultra-conservativeChristians on Facebook telling her she�s going to hell, but the reaction has mainlybeen one of intrigue.
�My nana wants one,� laughs Shanti.
�I�ve had more opposition to my tattoosthan I�ve ever had to the chip.
My friends are jealous.
� When the 27-year-old realised just how covetedthe implants were, she set up an Australian distribution service called Chip My Life withher husband, Skeeve Stevens.
It costs between $80 and $140 depending onthe sophistication of the technology, and (while you can do it at home) they work withdoctors who charge $150 to insert the implant.
�They do minor surgery, Botox and so on,�says Shanti.
�They give you a local, an injection anda quick ultrasound to make sure it�s in place.
� The biohacking couple both have RFID (radio-frequencyidentification) chips in their left hands and NFC (near-field communication) chips inthe right.
The implant is almost impossible to spot,leaving a mark as small as a freckle.
Shanti is appearing at today�s Sydney launchof cyborg-themed video game Deus Ex Mankind Divided alongside US implantable technologypioneer Amal Graafstra.
Amal considers himself a guinea-pig for humanaugmentation, making headlines in the US last week with a prototype of the world�s firstimplant-activated smart gun.
He became one of the world�s first RFIDimplantees in 2005, and has since founded an online store to sell the �at home�kits to people who want to �upgrade their body�.
He�s written a book, spoken at TEDx andappeared in documentaries.
�On a psychological level, this is completelydifferent to a smartphone or a Fitbit, because it goes in you,� he told news.
�Your kidneys are working hard but you�renot thinking about them, it�s not something you have to manage.
It�s given me the ability to communicatewith machines.
It�s literally integrated into who I am.
� He is aware of the ethical and security concerns,but points out that the data is encrypted, and most of your access cards are not secureanyway.
This is simply a case of �computing in thebody.
� Rather than worry about people being forcedto be microchipped, he�s now busy advocating for the rights of citizens who use them.
He believes the destruction of the chip couldin some cases classify as assault (as with a pacemaker) and other dangers might be governmentsforcibly extracting implants or data from them.
�I want to make sure it�s treated as partof the body, like an organ,� he says.
One firm in Sweden has allowed employees tochoose chips over a work pass, with 400 taking up the offer, but Amal says he more oftenhears from interested individuals who want to try it out.
�At the moment, it�s mainly access – house,computer motorcycle.
But in the future there�s the potentialto use it for transit, payment.
You could get rid of your keys and maybe yourwallet.
� Other uses might include children tappingto let parents know they are at school safely, refugees checking in at camps or women atshelters.
It can share diet, exercise and sleep information with you and your doctor, and the next generation could even release medicine asand when you need it.
For Shanti, adding an extra dimension to lifeis a childhood fantasy come true.
�Ever since watching movies like the Terminator,Matrix and Minority Report I wondered if we could actually live like that.
I always wondered why we all weren�t livingas �super-humans�.
