The UK’s Guardian newspaper has unveiled a piece of new technology and given it a glowing review. Disinfonaughts are likely to consider the kit in question to be slightly old news.
An embeddable chip that has the potential to rid you of keys and instantly unlock your phone is now available on Indiegogo
Keys have been a necessary evil for the last century or so, but what if you could unlock your house, your phone or you computer with just your hand? That is what the xNT will enable using near field communication (NFC).
Produced by biohacking and NFC-firm Dangerous Things, the xNT is the world’s first NFC-compliant radio frequency identity tag that can be implanted inside your body.
Measuring 2 x 12mm the NFC tag is encased in a biologically resistant glass capsule and is looking for $8,000 in funding on Indiegogo to start mass production, with pledges of $99 and up winning you your very own xNT pre-loaded into an injection tube ready for implantation.
The piece gives the tech a star rating of 4/5.
