Do you think that in the near future we'll be implanting RFID chips into babies? There has been some talk about having every human carry an RFID chip.

The stitches are removed, I've reached my final healing stages. There's no pain, only numbness around the magnet.

I did just that and I was told that if the marks don't disappear within the next week, I should get it checked out. They are fading and feeling has returned, so it seems like it was a result of wearing the bandages too tight.

Problem with this is hardware upgrades will be difficult

No doubt at some point in the future it will be seriously considered. It probably would have great benefits but would just be wrong on almost every other level.

Mount RFID chips on teeth, in a similar manner to orthodontic brace brackets. It would stay there pretty secure (assuming no crunching hard things), and the individual would have the option to remove it if they wished. But then that would defeat the whole purpose, since everyone would get them removed.

Hey, how about this idea: you need a license to legally not have the chip mounted, and anyone may obtain a license for a measly several thousand USD/quid/pounds/euros/currencies paid right to the government.

Why teeth? Back of your hand would make more sense.

Where and how would it mount on the back of your hand without invasive surgery? On the tooth quite nicely with a little glue.

Perhaps a wristband?

Humans should come with QR codes.

QR code tattoos! Looking up images, that seems like something that's been done.

That's a 1D barcode though, probably big enough to hold 8 bytes of information, like an NI number or social security number... which begs the question, why would anyone need to get a tattoo of a number they could easily memorize instead

Might be a good solution for people who can never remember their password - just get a cheap barcode scanner and scan your tattoo - a ghetto biometric security system and a badass Henry Rollins style tattoo in one!

It's been a while, I figure an update is in order. It's almost gone completely, it's hard to spot where it is without knowing what to look for.





It's still relatively numb. It will take about 6 months before everything is completely healed.

In the mean time, I've made the observation that in restaurants, knives are always magnetic, forks are sometimes magnetic, and spoons are never magnetic.

It's also fun to pick up small metallic objects and run my fingers along magnetic surfaces.

Does it get a problem, the whole knifes and forks etc (Cutlery?) being magnetical?
