They already do it to dogs (Hell, how much farther away can it be for humans?). They pinch Rover's neck and inject a small ID tag approximately the
size of a grain of rice. Thus, the next time the scamp escapes, whatever ASPCA picks him up will scan for the ID tag, which (If I recall) has one of
I. an ID # which subsequently can be used to look up dog's location/home/owner
II. dog's owner's name, address, etc.
They're about sixty bucks and the vet can do them in about ten seconds.
Are they that far behind for people? Technology is amoral, so it could be used by worried parents, or by a paranoid government. It wouldn't surprise
me in the least if there wasn't some testing already underway - even with soldiers, as a sort of digital-dog tag.
you might all be interested in that, too (figure i'd crosspost to let you know there's a parallel topic!)
