Blog We live in a science fiction world June 30, 2017 2 Comments I saw this coming, and I bet you did too: This man had the chip from his travel card implanted under his skin This Australian can now tap in and out at train stations with a travel card chip implanted in his left hand. I wonder how long it will be before implanted chips are as common as credit cards?

I prefer to keep chips in pets, not in me. I found the creation of various “sixth senses” to be more interesting. * People put small magnets in their fingertips, and can sense electric current. * People wear belts made of cell phone buzzers hooked up to GPS. Buzzers nearest wearer’s home buzz, giving wearer a “homing instinct.” Apparently when the belt is removed, the wearer feels bereft, as if he’s, well, lost a sense. (These are really primitive senses. Synthetic ears are already in play for deaf people.) The users say after a while you know longer notice the physical aspect. You just “know” where home is and the like. Rachel July 3, 2017 at 2:48 pm I’d be willing to try the belt with the buzzers, but implanting anything in my fingertips is right out.
