A US company says it has developed a microchip identity card
which can be
implanted under the skin.
The tiny electronic chip can carry information on a person's identity or medical needs.
It can also be used in combination with global position system (GPS) technology to track down kidnap victims.
The first chips are to go on sale in South America within three months and the company, Florida-based Applied Digital Solutions [featured in Children of the Matrix], expects to have permission to fit the systems in the US within six months.
The chips are so small they are put under the skin using a surgical needle and "read" by scanners which pick up the radio waves they emit and translate the information they contain.
And today experts predicted they could be used to replace car keys and credit cards within 10 years.
The chips can contain up to 60 separate pieces of information and Applied Digital Solutions intends to sell them to people with artificial limbs and organs, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Doctors treating patients will scan them for the chip, which would warn them about the presence of artificial limbs or organs to avoid treatments which could be harmful.
The system has been tested by Richard Seelig, a consultant surgeon from New Jersey, who injected himself with two chips, one in his left arm and one beside his artificial hip.
