‘Do you scan your veins before accessing your bank account? Use a microchip implanted in your hand to pay for your groceries? Or have a tattoo on your wrist that can unlock your smartphone?
If not, you or your friends may soon.
Once upon a time we only read about biometric identification and nanotechnology in apocalyptic novels, but now it is here.
And I recently encountered this technology. Just a few days ago while I was buying groceries, I noticed a button on a debit card machine that read “RFID tag.”
So instead of using cash or a debit card, I could have used an RFID tag to pay for my groceries. Or perhaps I could have even scanned my hand. That is, if I had an RFID chip implanted in it. The government and big corporations are promoting the technology.
In 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave the green light for Americans to have microchip implants to carry information. RFID chips are being used for everything from turning on your lights to turning on your cell phone to even tracking NFL players on the football field. Not all of them are impacts, but the technology works similarly either way.
Some Christians see the implants as the “mark of the beast” or warn they someday will be used for that purpose. The RFID implant technology is advancing just as the movie Left Behind movie — based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins – hits theaters. The Left Behind book series mentions a mark of the beast.
Man Has Implant Inserted In Hand
Ben Slater, an advertising director from Australia, had a microchip inserted into the webbing of his hand in a Melbourne tattoo parlor, and now is able to turn on lights and open doors without touching anything.
“The most obvious thing the chip allows me to do is store my contact information on it, so that I can just touch a phone with NFC (near field communication) and pass my information to their phone. That is a great party trick,” Slater told Daily Mail Australia.
“But it can also trigger an action on my phone to turn the house lights off, open a secure door which is set to recognize the chip or I could — and probably will — set up my car ignition to be linked to the chip for keyless entry and start up.”
Slater made the choice to get the microchip implant because he is interested in the future of technology.’
