No one can say or predict whether mandatory implantation of medical microchips will be done in the future. Or how the current use of medical microchips for implantation could evolve into something more sinister. Sometimes things look benign on the surface at first and evolve into something else that will eventually go beyond our control. The health care bill is a perfect example of that.
How about shock collars that cause them to pass out when they are within 1000ft of a school or park?
All Australians could be implanted with microchips for tracking and identification within the next two or three generations, a prominent academic says.
1. that's in Saudi Arabia
2. "Killer Chip"? not gonna be allowed in USA
I wasn't talking about in the U.S. I'm talking about that anything can happen with implantable microchipping in humans knowing that technolgy continues to get smaller and more efficient. It's a possibility. I haven't gotten an appropriate answer from Fred Astaire.
I do.We won't know where the future will take us, whether here in the U.S. or elsewhere. That's the problem.
No one can predict the future but the odds are certainly favorable on how microchipping will evolve and how it will be used for. It's already mandatory for certain criminals to wear tracking devices. It's a matter of acceptance by the mass over time.
If I have the implantable microchip inserted, can I be "tracked" in any way?
This is one of the most common questions regarding the implantable microchip and the answer is a definite "No." VeriChip's human-implantable RFID microchip does not have the capabilities to offer such service since it does not have built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) support or long-range wireless communications. It is a passive RFID microchip containing only a unique 16-digit identifier and can only be read by a VeriChip reader held up closely to the location of the inserted chip. It is therefore built for in-room applications like the rapid, secure patient identification offered by VeriMed Health Link and cannot be used to track children, prevent kidnappings, etc.
the reason why I do know is because I am in field of technology and you are not. I believe I have a much more in-depth knowledge about this than you. I know what it can do or can't do. I can assure you that "Killer Chip" or similar on general scale is not feasible anytime soon. I understand the concern and all when everybody sees the term "implantable RFID" and "GPS" together in any article especially written by somebody with foggy understanding of this technology. It is confusing and misleading for many. The answer is in the link you provided in your post.
In fact - ankle bracelet works a lot better than this "Killer Chip" and much easier to achieve.
