It appears there are a handful of people, primarily engineers, who are taking the plunge and implanting RFID chips into their hands. Purpose? For automation, of course. Having an RFID chip implanted can save time doing things such as logging onto computer work stations, unlocking electrically-locked doors, ordering pizza and buying porn. Mikey Sklar, one of the pioneers of this self-chipping procedure, will be explaining the grisly process, telling why he did this, describing different tagging options and offering even more self-chipping information at the next Dorkbot meet-up in NYC on Wednesday January 4th at 7 pm.
