The world would be a safer place if authorities had a tamper-proof way of identifying people, she said.



It’s a simple concept, really: You inject a miniature radio frequency identifier the size of a grain of rice between your thumb and forefinger and with a wave of your hand unlock doors, turn on lights, start your car or pay for your drinks at an ultrachic nightspot.//creditcards

“In the United States, human-implantable RFID microchips have been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 2004 for medical applications, such as the identification of high-risk medical patients and their medical records in an emergency and clinical situation. Before this period, RFID chips have been used to identify animals (livestock, laboratory animals, pets) for decades. Non-implant RFID tags are also found in a number of consumer products, library books, passports, security access cards, keys, transport payment cards and inmate tracking devices. Today, human microchip implants have a very wide range of uses on top of medical ones (and scientific and artistic experimentation), such as identifying VIP customers and paying for drinks in nightclubs!//Sophie Le-Phat Ho ////studioXX/


Some electronic implants are smaller than a grain of rice and can be injected into the subject via a hypodermic needle. A recent law was passed in Los Angeles that any lost pets picked up by the pound had to be injected with a telemetry implant before being released.

These telemetry implants are electromagnetically connected to the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) system so that if the pet is ever lost again they can be immediately located by GPS monitors.//Shadowlands


Applied Digital Solutions plans to resume marketing its implantable VeriChip product for security, financial and personal identification and safety applications in the U.S. now that the Food and Drug Administration completed its investigation of the device.//wired


Implantable microchip technology goes well beyond identification devices. An area of immense potential is the use of microchips as diagnostic devices to sense an animal’s physical condition.//Digital Angel


Digital Angel, Inc.  develops global positioning satellite (GPS) and radio frequency identification (RFID) technology products for consumer, commercial, and government sectors worldwide.//wiki


Radio-frequency identification is, in fact, already pervasive in our lives — used to track everything from pets to prisoners to products./time


VeriChip is primarily marketing the chip as the most secure and reliable way to link people with their medical records because it cannot be lost and can identify patients even when they are not conscious or lucid.//NYT


The chip itself does not contain medical records but an access code that that can be scanned and revealed by a hand held scanner. VeriChip is not an FDA-regulated device with regard to its security, financial, personal identification or safety applications.//gizmag
The VeriChip Corporation, manufactures of the VeriChip — the microchip made to be implanted in humans — has taken a considerable downturn after evidence has emerged showing the chip could cause cancer.//justgetthere

Asked if it had taken these studies into account, the FDA said VeriChip documents were being kept confidential to protect trade secrets. After AP filed a FOIA request, the FDA made available for a phone interview Anthony Watson, who was in charge of the VeriChip approval process. “At the time we reviewed this, I don’t remember seeing anything like that,” he said of animal studies linking microchips to cancer. A literature search “didn’t turn up anything that would be of concern.”//washington post


DELRAY BEACH, FL – July 6, 2009 – VeriChip Corporation (“VeriChip” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CHIP), a provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems for healthcare and patient-related needs, announced today it supports Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives’ recent passage of a bill banning the forced implantation of microchips in humans.//verichip


The need for medical researchers to obtain informed consent from individuals involved in medical experimentation was first established in 1947 by the Nuremberg Code. Since that time, guidelines have been developed to ensure that no one is experimented upon against their will.//antichips

A responsible debate on human chipping would consider the extreme scenario—widespread mandatory implants—and not just focus on the initial “socially acceptable” proposals that target specific populations such as Alzheimer’s patients, children, or convicts on work release programs.//businessweek

    While VeriChip is not an FDA-regulated device with regard to its security, financial, personal identification or safety applications- want to bet they will be sing as they were awarded a patent for an implant the registers swine flu?

    so many good uses, the people will sooner or later realize they want something just like this, and they will pay for it… oinktschia…
