Radio Frequency Identification, the technology used in human implantable microchips. It's being developed as a new type of ID. You can get a tiny microchip implanted in your hand which can be scanned to identify you, and can also track your location. It could potentially replace all forms of ID and link you to a central database containing all your bank account info, credit card info, etc so you never have to carry a wallet again, just go shopping and have your hand scanned. The technology could usher in the ultimate cashless society, as well as the ultimate surveillance society. Forget to pay your taxes? Don't worry, your friendly government will deduct it right out of your chip. Got a parking ticket? Traffic fine? Fine for saying something un-PC? That comes right out too. Up to some un-PC activities? Up to no good? With location tracking, your friendly government will be able to monitor you at all times and provide the corrective discipline you need. With RFID chips, you'll always get the joy of obeying your friendly government, paying your taxes and fines, and behaving like a good well-trained member of society. Don't listen to those nutty fundie Christians who might tell you this is dehumanizing or degrading. Get an RFID chip implanted in your right hand or forehead today!
