Just for general information, the chip has been in use for a few years now on many types of animals; cattle, dogs, cats, etc. It requires no power.
It is about the size of small grain of rice. When a concentrated RF signal is directed at the chip, it responds with a unique identification number.
Any external system could use that number to uniquely identify you.
Problems with implementation? You betcha. The manufacture and issue of the chips would have to be heavily controlled, otherwise anyone could make
duplicates and impersonate anyone. Even with the maximum control possible, IMHO someone will figure out how to do it anyway. Nonetheless, I believe
that we are just a few short years away from widespread implementation.
Mark of the beast? Yep, no doubt.
