In 2012, young Steve read Article in the edge About physical hacking. It all started with an anecdote about a piercing store in Pittsburgh implanting neodymium magnets in fingertips using ice cubes for anesthesia. This was, to my fifteen-year-old brain, the most wonderful thing in the world.

Of course, my parents forbade me to go to Pittsburgh for the operation, and they were probably right: These magnets get weaker over time-Removing your sixth sense and leaving only a scar on your fingers as a memory. But the concept of body modification, to take this crumbling bundle of organic matter and make it betterPlus ableIt never left my mind.

Even if someone He implants an experimental chip in his hand to act like a car key, I understand. The video embedded below starts in 31 seconds to show the functionality of the slide and skip the implant procedure, which shows a man’s severed hand surgically placed to place the slide inside.

Tesla main chip implant

True, “experimental” may be an exaggeration. The chip is a multi-purpose NFC technology, currently in beta, and soon to be a production model. The tester is Brandon Deli, a Tesla owner and a clear body modification enthusiast. And while his chips are a new design, he’s not the first person to have a Tesla control device implanted into his body.

in 2019, USA Today I posted a story about Software engineer, EMI body modifier and chip to unlock Tesla car. Amie DD’s work precedes Dalali’s experimental chip, but takes an alternative approach: The engineer stripped an NFC tag from a car key card and encased it in secure polymer before implanting it in her arm.

Tesla Model 3 Chip Install – Blood Warning

Amie DD worked with a company called VivoKey to make an implantable NFC chip, which led to this A product called TeslaFlex Which can be purchased at a well-known biohacking store dangerous things. But TeslaFlex had problems: it could just To open Tesla, don’t turn it on.

Tesla switches run a program called java cardwhich is used for Secure connections between the card and the car. So VivoKey has returned to the drawing board and developed a new implantable chip capable of running those little apps. Results? Vivo Key Apex: The same demo slide that my guide installed and offered.

Certainly, using the back of your hand to unlock your car is no more convenient than using a key or a phone. But the idea of ​​expanding the human body, making it able to do things far beyond what evolution or biology can achieve, remains incredibly intriguing and attractive. If we go to Living in a cyberpunk dystopiawe can also get the fun benefits of this high technology.
