In the USA, QR code usage is expanding. During the month of June 2011, according to one study, 14 million mobile users scanned a QR code or a barcode. Some 58% of those users scanned a QR or bar code from their home, while 39% scanned from retail stores; 53% of the 14 million users were men between the ages of 18 and 34.
[color=palevioletred]While the adoption of QR codes in some markets has been slow to begin (particularly in markets such as the United States, where competing standards such as Data Matrix exist), the technology is gaining some traction in the smartphone market. Many Android, Nokia, Blackberry handsets, and the Nintendo 3DS, come with QR code readers installed. QR reader software is available for most mobile platforms. Moreover, there are a number of online QR code generators which enable users to create QR codes for their own needs.

I'm starting to wonder how we can get our hands on some paperwork that will show that we've gotten the chip when we haven't. Maybe a mole or hack can find the paperwork and it can be distributed to everyone when they ask for proof of slavedom.
Another thing will be to fool or damage the sensing machine. You know, have a sheath of fake skin on your arm so when they wave the detection wand over your arm searching for the chip, the hidden magnet or kriptonite causes the machine/sensor to fry.
