"Uberveillance is not on the outside looking down, but on the inside looking out through a microchip that is embedded in our bodies," Dr Michael told ninemsn.
Microchips are commonly implanted into animals to reveal identification details when scanned and similar devices have been used with Alzheimers patients.
US company VeriChip is already using implantable microchips, which store a 16-digit unique identification number, on humans for medical purposes.

And it appears, at least according to this article, that they may ALREADY be using these chips in humans.
To date 2,000 people worldwide have voluntarily had the VeriChip tag implanted into their upper right arms, among them patients with chronic or debilitating disease — as well as VIP patrons of a Barcelona nightclub and investigators requiring special access to confidential drug-trafficking case files at the Ministry of Justice in Mexico. Over the next two years, VeriChip and Alzheimer's Community Care plans to inject 110 patients with dementia or Alzheimer's with the chip as well.
A COMPANY IN OHIO has incorporated use of human-implanted RFID chips into its employee access control system....
In February, Six Sigma Security Inc., Cincinnati, installed and integrated VeriChip Corp.'s VeriGuard Security Suite, featuring VeriChip's human-implantable RFID microchip, at CityWatcher.com.
The added feature is used to open the door to the video storage room, one of the four doors at the building. Chips about the size of a grain of rice were implanted into three employees' arms on a volunteer basis. The passive RFID chip is located between the elbow and the wrist. Once the arm is within six inches of the scanner, it reads the chip, which stores a number, and verifies the number to a database. Once verified, the scanner knows whether or not the individual has access to the door.

Probably would not happen that way, but if it did, I can see a lot of people changing their minds.
