Well it looks like we're getting our new biometric passports very soon, and our new biometric ID cards along with them.
I read somewhere (but I can't find the source) that the new cards and/or passports will have RFID chips in them, partly to be compatible with the US
Well, once all of this has been implemented and everyones had their little grumble and accepted it, all the technology will be in place in shops,
street,s airports, etc etc using the RFID technology, which for now will be in the cards.
Then there will be 'difficulties', people forgetting their cards, cards being stolen with all the information on them, etc etc... So what would a
good idea be? How about implanting the chip into people rather than carrying a card around with it in!
Think of all the problems it will solve, also people are already complaining about the £93 they will have to pay for the new cards, so this will cut
costs down even more!
That's kind of the way I think it will happen anyway.
Also, while I was looking for the article I couldn't find, I did come across this site which was pretty interesting to read:
