rfid hand

Amal has two RFID implants, one in each hand. His left hand contains a 3mm by 13mm EM4102 glass RFID tag that was implanted by a cosmetic surgeon. His right hand contains a 2mm by 12mm Philips HITAG 2048 S implant with crypto-security features and 255 bytes of read/write memory storage space. It was implanted by a family doctor using an Avid injector kit like the ones used on pets. He can access his front door, car door, and log into his computer using his implants, and has written a book called RFID Toys, which details how to build these and other RFID enabled projects.

It's a pitty that "tagging" in germany is a bit hard to realize due to legal restrictions. And a DIY "surgery" solution scares me off until now.

Of course implanting RFID chips isn't all that special anymore.
In Barcelona and Rotterdam party clubbers get chipped nowadays to pay for their drinks. See: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/3697940.stm

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
