Locative Lab

researching locative media


DIY RFID human implants are on the rise. I have found over sixteen
instances of midnight engineers implanting RFID tags in their
hands. The general excuse is for automation purposes. Examples
such as unlocking a computer screen saver or opening doors
that have been outfitted with electric deadbolts. In my own case the
idea of implanting technology that I have researched and spec’d out
was very appealing. The fact that it can actually do something
useful is quite secondary. The most rewarding part of this project
was learning about RFID at a much deeper level.
