Was listneing to TalkSport ( Uk radio station ), today, and they said that there are plans to have a microchip inserted into everyone.
This is somthing that has been thought up in the US and is VERY VERY likely to passed as law into the US and UK within the next 3-5 years.
It sounded stupid to me, but they had distinguished guests and indeed politicians justifying it.
The chip would be instered into kids when they are born, and would have details like - blood type, name, date of birth....
As the child grows, new info is sent to the chip, to the point where your credit card is no longer a card, bu t simply a part of the chip, so u just run ur wrist over the rreader. Mastercard has said they would give this idea their full backing and help finance it.
The UK govt is saying that this would be a fool proof alternative to the ID card system being currently mooted.
Has anyone else heard about this ?
