RFID chips: a key to more or less freedom?
swipe his hand in front of this chip reader. A fan of new technology, this young man from Switzerland has had two Radio Frequency Identification chips implanted into his body. He is part of a new generation of what some have branded “enhanced human beings”. “I’m not saying it’s indispensable. But I’m a high-tech fan and it’s an invention I was interested in trying out, and it’s easy to remove,” he explains. “People think it’s really weird to get an implant. And then, they see the result and they think, I could try that, too, maybe one day the chip will allow me to do even more things.”
