RFID chip hand implantation

E-mail Print PDF

A HiTag S 2048 RFID glass tag measuring 2.12x12mm is implanted into my left hand by body modification artist Lukas Zpira on October 14th 2005.
I had the implant done for a school project at Denmarks Design School where I was experimenting with keyless entry solutions.
Low frequency tags normally have a read distance of up to 10cm, but because this is placed under the skin the read distance is no more than 2cm. This does *not* change with a stronger reader.
NO! The government can't use this to track me. The chip contains no data of any use to anybody, and even if it did the data is encrypted and can't be read from a distance. Please read up on RFID technology before you comment...
NO! This is not "the number of the beast". If you choose to take the bible literally, please do so consistently. The chip is in my LEFT hand, not my right.
