Can you be a microchip? Kaiserski’s transplant chip in the hands of a man who can be used to pay the luggage one day and even unlock his house…

In the vision of a future dystopian science-man is often micro-hippied, so he can be controlled to do everything offense from the work of the house.
And today this vision became a reality during an event in IFA in Berlin.
A volunteer who participated in the conference of the security firm Casparkey had a chip in his hand that could potentially unlock his phone
This is the latest in a growing movement called ‘biohakening’ in which people have to implant chips in their work to do simple tasks, which they usually use their phone or smartwatch.
Marcus Pries, director of the Kaspersky Global Research team in Europe, said: ‘The next logical step is not to stop on wearables like smartwetts, but to enable more functionality, go under the skin.
In this incident, the grain of chalk was placed in his hand in the hand of a Kaspersky employee, in the glass.
A professional piercher loaded him in a needle and pushed it between the skin and thumb of the skin, where he told that it revolves around the first week and some injuries.
Such chips can be bought online under 100 pounds ($ 152), and the intrepid users can also join themselves using a large needle that comes with the kit, although it is not encouraged.
For the time being, a chip using RFID technology is being used to do simple things like opening a door or unlocking the phone.
‘At the moment, it is quite limited,’ Mr. Preece admitted.
But in the future, users can pull hands in front of a payment terminal to buy goods in stores or, for example, can swipe a reader to ride a train.
It may be possible to use such a chip to unlock the front door or start the car.
Speaking as part of a panel of experts, Swedish Biohar Hans Sojelad, who establishes Bio-Hacking Community – Bionifechan – believes that the use of chips in the future can be used to track pulse and body temperature and personal data To encrypt, health logging can be done as a transplant.

‘I see many interesting incidents,’ said Mr. Szalad.
“We have silenced 500 people in the last few months, it is a trend that there are no life changing uses, but we want to contribute to the development of this exciting technology platform, so it is altruistic.
SENDING DATA USING THE BODY
Turning the human body into a huge magnet
Researchers from the University of California San Diego have shown that it is possible to transmit information through human body using magnetic fields, which could allow smart watches, activity monitors and phones to communicate.
They say the technology, called magnetic field human body communication, uses only a fraction of the energy needed to send data over Bluetooth links and may also be more secure.
THE SWEDISH BIOHACKER MOVEMENT
BioNyfiken is a Swedish bio-hacking community that’s gaining momentum, with some 500 people microchipped in recent months, some 70 percent of whom are men.
They are leading the charge in normalising the chipping phenomenon and bringing it to the masses.
Their view is that having a smart sub-dermal implant is not so different from an earring or having a tattoo, and that an increasing number of people have an array of information that includes NFC-compatible implants.
‘The technology is already happening,’ said Hannes Sjoblad, one of the founders of BioNyfiken.
‘We are seeing a fast-growing community of people experimenting with chip implants, which allow users to quickly and easily perform a variety of everyday tasks, such as allowing access to buildings, unlocking personal devices without PIN codes and various types of read-write access Of stored data

‘I consider the take-off of this technology as another important interface-moment in the history of human-computer interaction, similar to the launches of the first windows desktop or the first touch screen.’
‘Identification by touch is innately natural for humans
‘Pin codes and passwords are not natural and every additional device that we have to carry around ourselves to be it a key fob or a swipe card, is just another item, which is our life clutters.
‘That’s why we felt it was crucial to work together with a leading security expert who really understands the risks.
In this repsects, BioNyfiken considers Kaspersky Lab to be the ideal research partner.
Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and Chief Executive of Kaspersky Lab, said: ‘Personally, I’d rather not be chipped.
‘I do however understand that the technological progress can not be hindered and there will be innovators who are willing to use their own bodies on experiments by using the risk of technology.
‘I’d just rather they did this with their eyes open and with security at the forefront of their minds, instead of a retrofit after-thought, as so often occurs.’
Mr. Chereshnev explained that the implants could also be personalised and encrypted according to someone’s DNA and a user could make them self-destruct, or dissolve with the power of thought.
In the future, when the implants get smarter and smaller, they may require a battery and there is going to be researched on whether the body of the temperature can be used to power a device.
All the experts believe it will take a while for microchipping to get a community of hackers.
‘Right now it’s not massively ready to use technology, but it’s getting there fast,’ Mr Chereshnev said.
