  Getting Chipped & Biometrics

VeriChip: This chip is not Science Fiction, it is real and plans to use it are progressing. 

Using an ordinary hypodermic needle, doctors will implant it

 

This is a picture of the chip being used and how it is inserted - NOW - at a famous Baja Club in the Caribbean. 

This club is for the worlds elite.

It is being used to purchase enmities since there is no place for a wallet in their "modern" swim suits! So the chip serves as "MONEY" The dimensions as shown are 2.1 millimeters deep by 12 millimeters long.

Revelation Chapter 13 Verses 1-18  

[enlarged chip picture compare to one with needle above!]

"1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man  have an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;  saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17   And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it ; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

The tiny medical lab can be implanted under the skin. It uses a mobile phone to send doctors details from onboard sensors, so patients can be remotely monitored

The implant measures about 14mm and comprises five sensors, a coil for wireless power as well a miniaturized electronics for radio communication.

Sensors on the chip are covered with an enzyme that reacts with chemicals in the body to measure them.

Information is then sen using Bluetooth to a wearer's mobile phone, where it is sent to doctors.

The chip can detect up to five proteins and organic acids simultaneously, and then transmit the results directly to a doctor's computer.

The implant is only a few cubic millimeters in volume but includes five sensors, a radio transmitter and a power delivery system.

Outside the body, a battery patch provides 1/10 watt of power, through the patient's skin – so there is no need to operate every time the battery needs changing.

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin

A team of engineers today announced a discovery that could change the world of electronics forever. Called an "epidermal electronic system" (EES), it's basically an electronic circuit mounted on your skin, designed to stretch, flex, and twist — and to take input from the movements of your body.

EES is a leap forward for wearable technologies, and has potential applications ranging from medical diagnostics to video game control and accelerated wound-healing.

Engineers John Rogers and Todd Coleman, who worked on the discovery, tell io9 it's a huge step towards erasing the divide that separates machine and human.

Coleman and Rogers say they developed EES to forego the hard and rigid electronic "wafer" format of traditional electronics in favor of a softer, more dynamic platform.

Next evolution: Big Brother's Embedded micro-chips for cyber connectivity - Government-funded research produces electronics you wear

Federally funded research at the University of Illinois has produced a microchip that can be put on skin like a temporary tattoo and is successful in linking the physical world and the cyberworld in stunning new ways, according to a university announcement.

"We think this could be an important conceptual advance in wearable electronics, to achieve something that is almost unnoticeable to the wearer," said university electrical and computer engineering professor Todd Coleman.

Coleman helped lead the multi-disciplinary team that worked on the project that is being touted for its uses in medical monitoring as well as treatment of disorders that require links to computers.

"The researchers found that, when applied to the skin of the throat, the sensors could distinguish muscle movement for simple speech," the university report said. "The researchers have even used the electronic patches to control a video game, demonstrating the potential for human-computer interfacing."

Coleman said the technology "can connect you to the physical world and the cyberworld in a very natural way that feels very comfortable."

The development recalls a recent report about the area of study called "transhumanism," a term often used synonymously with "human enhancement."

Basically, it's a sort of regenesis, altering human bodies – genetically, mechanically or both – to make them better than they've been for thousands of years, affording them Superman-style abilities in both brains and brawn.

Futurists describe it as being "posthuman," the next step in what they believe to be the evolutionary process.

According to the University of Illinois, "Skin-mounted electronics have many biomedical applications, including EEG and EMG sensors to monitor nerve and muscle activity.

One major advantage of skin-like circuits is that they don't require conductive gel, tape, skin-penetrating pins or bulky wires, which can be uncomfortable for the user and limit coupling efficiency.

They are much more comfortable and less cumbersome than traditional electrodes and give the wearers complete freedom of movement."

The report said the technology will allow a more accurate understanding of how the human brain functions.

"If we want to understand brain function in a natural environment, that's completely incompatible with EEG studies in a laboratory," said Coleman, who has since moved to the University of California at San Diego.

"The best way to do this is to record neural signals in natural settings, with devices that are invisible to the user."

The report said the skin-mounted electronics also could be used for patients with neurological disorders, connecting them to computers.

The research was discussed in the Aug. 12 issue of the journal Science.

The new product is a circuit that bends, wrinkles and stretches with the skin, yet maintains the full functions of the sensors, LEDs, transistors, radio frequency capacitors, antennas and other components.

"We threw everything in our bag of tricks onto that platform, and then added a few other new ideas on top of those, to show that we could make it work," Rogers said in the university report.

The chips are applied in a method similar to affixing a temporary tattoo.

Rogers collaborated with Northwestern University engineering professor Yonggang Huang to develop what they call filamentary serpentine, in which circuits are made up of squiggled wires. The circuits are mounted on a flexible surface.

"The blurring of electronics and biology is really the key point here," Huang said in the report. "All established forms of electronics are hard, rigid. Biology is soft, elastic. It's two different worlds. This is a way to truly integrate them."

The scientists' next goals, they said, are to integrate various electronics into a system and add Wi-Fi capability.

"The vision is to exploit these concepts in systems that have self-contained, integrated functionality, perhaps ultimately working in a therapeutic fashion with closed feedback control based on integrated sensors, in a coordinated manner with the body itself," Rogers said.

We previously have reported on chips used in hospitals to identify newborns, VeriChip's desire to embed chips in immigrants, a government health event showcasing the product and Wal-Mart's use of chips to track customers.

All children to be registered in national biometric records - Identity-tracking scheme assembled under radar for 'border pass' program*

Below the radar of public opinion, Mexico has started to assemble the type of biometric national identity database that could be used to document names for a North American Trusted Traveler border pass card, a plan already being developed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for Mexican citizens.

It apparently would be similar to the program that has become commonplace in the European Union to allow free transit for EU citizens to move, live and work wherever they choose within the EU, disregarding nation-of-origin and national border restrictions.

On Jan. 19, 2011, Mexico's President Felipe Calderon signed an executive order requiring within the next five years all Mexicans 17 years old and younger have a biometric national identity card that would include a facial photograph, all 10 fingerprints, and an iris scan.

Inside the Australian Government's Scary Web Site on Microchip ID Implants

If the Australian government really doesn’t want to implant its citizens with PositiveID (PSID) microchips, it sure isn’t helping itself with its Web page dedicated to a “literature review” of different patient identification technologies, including VeriChip, “palm vein scanning,” radio frequency identification, and other dystopian sci-fi ideas. While the New South Wales Department of Health Web page is ostensibly a reference point for officials who want to reduce medical errors caused by patient mix-ups, it looks pretty scary if you’re someone who thinks that society is heading toward a Minority Report-style dictatorship in which everyone carries a compulsory microchip implant. And there are lots of those people. Managers ought to be aware that transparency has a flip side: The same information can look mighty different when viewed by unintended audiences.

Dems spark alarm with call for national ID card

Democratic leaders have proposed requiring every worker in the nation to carry a national identification card with biometric information, such as a fingerprint, within the next six years, according to a draft of the measure. The proposal is one of the biggest differences between the newest immigration reform proposal and legislation crafted by late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). The national ID program would be titled the Believe System, an acronym for Biometric Enrollment, Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment. It would require all workers across the nation to carry a card with a digital encryption key that would have to match work authorization databases.

Microchip bill clears House committee

A House committee gave its stamp of approval to a bill that would make it unlawful to implant a microchip in a person without permission. The bill, which now goes to the full House, would make it a misdemeanor to implant a microchip, sensor, transmitter or tracking device into individuals against their will. The measure is being sponsored by Sen. Chip Pearson (R-Dawsonville) and Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock) and has already cleared the state Senate. Rep. Ed Setzler (R-Acworth), who is carrying the bill in the House, acknowledged before the Judiciary Committee that there’s no evidence that microchip technology is being massively abused and being implanted in people against their will. “This is proactive,” Setzler said.

Your Medical Records: Soon to be Held for Ransom by a Chip-Implant Maker

PositiveID (PSID), the microchip implant company formerly known as VeriChip, has added a new wrinkle to its business model that is bound to be controversial: Its Health Link chip is being sold “on a paid subscription basis” in a pilot scheme targeted at ship, dock and maritime workers. Health Link is a microchip implanted under the skin that, when scanned, provides access to a patient’s online medical records. The chip is linked to Microsoft’s HealthVault and Google Health. The company’s press release is slim on details, but it suggests that either ship workers’ employers or the employees themselves will be charged a monthly fee to keep the chip activated in the system. In effect, PositiveID will hold the implanted workers’ online health records to ransom: One assumes that if the monthly fee is not paid, access will not be granted.

Intel Wants Brain Implants in Its Customers' Heads by 2020

If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, don't tell Intel researchers. Intel's Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020. The scientists anticipate that consumers will adapt quickly to the idea, and indeed crave the freedom of not requiring a keyboard, mouse, or remote control for surfing the Web or changing channels. They also predict that people will tire of multi-touch devices such as our precious iPhones, Android smart phones and even Microsoft's wacky Surface Table. Turning brain waves into real-world tech action still requires some heavy decoding of brain activity. The Intel team has already made use of fMRI brain scans to match brain patterns with similar thoughts across many test subjects.

Does Obamacare really require implanted microchips?

The claims that I have seen center around two different sources. The first is an FDA publication titled “Class II Controls Guidance Document:

Implantable Radiofrequency Transponder System for Patient Identification and Health Information.

The document is dated 2004 and says in the “background” section that it is intended to help manufacturers “comply with the requirement for class II special controls.”

It goes on to say that this will enable them to “market their device without being subject to the premarket notification requirements….”

Also Nancy Pelosi hinted, is that it will require Americans to have a microchip implanted in their bodies that will contain their medical information and be listed in a Medical Devices Registry.

UN International development minister says capacity to respond to World Disasters is not keeping up with pace of crises*

The UN will be unable to cope with the human cost of natural disasters expected over the next five years without more funds and urgent reforms, a government minister warned today.

By 2015, it is predicted that the number of people around the world who will need to be rescued from natural catastrophes will rise by more than 100 million as more hurricanes, typhoons, floods and mudslides triggered by climate change add to the toll caused by earthquakes and man-made disasters.

Gareth Thomas, the international development minister, said that the international community's capacity to respond had improved markedly in the past few years but was not keeping up with the accelerating pace of crises, as the Haiti earthquake in January made clear.

"It's about five years since the last review of humanitarian disasters took place and we've had one major natural disaster a year since then," Thomas said. "The unpredictable nature of these events is no excuse. We need a system that is fit for purpose, properly funded and has the right people with the rights skills in place.

"If we had two big natural disasters at the same time could the UN handle the kind of response needed? Our worry is that the system would be creaking, to be generous."

Apocalyptic Talk Stokes Microchip Implant Debate

Forbidding companies from forcing employees to have microchips implanted in their bodies isn't just about protecting personal freedom; it might ward off the biblical "mark of the beast," according to a lawmaker who's pushing for such a ban in Virginia.

The state House overwhelmingly approved Del. Mark Cole's bill. Several other states already have similar laws or are considering them. Cole said the right to privacy was the main reason he sponsored the bill. "I just think you should have the right to control your own body," Cole told The Washington Post.

Some liberal bloggers were struck by such a pro-choice sentiment coming from a Virginia Republican. But what really got attention around the blogosphere was the other concern he expressed.

"My understanding -- I'm not a theologian -- but there's a prophecy in the Bible that says you'll have to receive a mark, or you can neither buy nor sell things in end times," Cole explained to the Post. "Some people think these computer chips might be that mark." Cole isn't alone. In Tennessee, Rep. Susan Lynn, who's sponsoring a similar bill, acknowledged the religious aspect of the debate.

Georgia's Senate approved a ban on forced implants last week. That legislation was sponsored by two aptly named lawmakers: Sens. Chip Rogers and Chip Pearson. The microchips -- which are about the size of a grain of rice and are also known as radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags -- have been used for more than a decade, primarily in pets and livestock, but also some humans.

They can be used to store personal ID or medical records. Although California, North Dakota and Wisconsin already have laws on the books, chip implant ban skeptics such as Virginia Del. Bob Brink don't see the need.

The Democrat called Cole's bill "a solution in search of a problem." "If Virginia is starting to use California as our legislative role model, it's a sign that our legislative apocalypse has arrived," Brink added.

Novartis Big Brother Chip Implant Texts Your Phone When You Need Another

Novartis implanted computer chips into the shoulders of 20 patients taking the blood pressure drug Diovan; the chips sent text messages to their cellphones when it was time to take the next pill. The experiment was designed to improve “compliance.”

Novartis’ efforts are doubly creepy because it actually involves two internal chips. The first chip is inside the pill being swallowed. It sends a signal to the chip in your shoulder.

If you fail to take your next pill, the shoulder chip nags you on your mobile. Note that after

the text arrives on your phone, the message then goes “onto the internet for caregivers to review and analyze.”

Big Brother and The Mark Of The Beast

VeriChip Corporation Agrees to Acquire Steel Vault Corporation to Form PositiveID Corporation:

Implantable Microchips To Form Steel Vault ID In Fulfillment Of Prophecy

VeriChip Corporation (NASDAQ: CHIP) ("VeriChip"), a provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) systems for healthcare and patient-related needs, and Steel Vault Corporation (OTCBB: SVUL) ("Steel Vault"), a premier provider of identity security products and services, announced that VeriChip has agreed to acquire Steel Vault and form PositiveID Corporation to offer identification tools and technologies for consumers and businesses. In conjunction with the merger, VeriChip plans to change its name to PositiveID and continue to trade on the NASDAQ. PositiveID intends to change its ticker symbol to "PSID" upon closing of the transaction.

The formation of PositiveID represents the convergence of a pioneer in personal health records, VeriChip, with a leader in the identity security space, Steel Vault, focused on access and security of a consumer's critical data. The companies believe that joining personal health records and identity security solutions provides a solid foundation for organic growth and a strong, flexible platform for future offers.

Under terms of the agreement, Steel Vault stockholders will receive 0.5 shares of VeriChip common stock for every share of Steel Vault common stock held. The outstanding stock options and warrants of Steel Vault will also be converted at the same ratio. This merger is a stock -- for -- stock transaction, is expected to be a tax free exchange, and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2009. Regulatory approvals and affirmative stockholder votes are required from VeriChip and Steel Vault.

It is expected that Scott R. Silverman, the current Chairman and CEO of VeriChip, will become PositiveID's Chairman and CEO, and that William J. Caragol, the CEO of Steel Vault, will become PositiveID's President and Chief Operating Officer.

Commenting on the transaction, Mr. Silverman stated, "We believe the acquisition of Steel Vault will provide a powerful platform to differentiate ourselves among both the consumer and medical community. PositiveID will be the first company of its kind to combine a successful identity security business with one of the world's first personal health records through our Health Link business. PositiveID will address some of the most important issues affecting our society today with our identification tools and technologies for consumers and businesses."

Continued Silverman, "VeriChip will be able to market its personal health record offerings to the rapidly growing customers of Steel Vault, while Steel Vault should be able to further expand its customer base by offering a unique suite of both security and healthcare offerings. As we focus on securing consumers' financial information and addressing the critical need for secure, online personal health records, we believe we are well positioned to benefit from federal stimulus funding. We will keep patients involved in their health care as medical records migrate to the Internet."

Mr. Caragol stated, "We believe this merger provides value for both companies' stockholders and enables us to offer customers a broader array of value-added services. PositiveID puts people in control of their personal health records and financial security, bridging the gap between secure medical records and identity security. The formation of PositiveID will facilitate cross-marketing opportunities across our customer bases, enabling both organic growth and growth through acquisition of companies and services that provide complementary identification tools and technologies. By combining these two companies, including VeriChip's solid balance sheet and Steel Vault's growing revenue producing identity security business, and continuing the expansion of our product offerings, we believe we can continue to increase our customer retention and maximize stockholder value. On a pro forma basis, PositiveID has more than $4 million in cash and no debt."

Identity theft is the number one crime in the United States and as many as 10 million people are victims each year. Additionally, medical errors contribute to countless deaths each year due to a lack of or incorrect patient information. PositiveID will address the significant market need

to monitor critical data on an ongoing basis to protect consumers and ensure data integrity and safety.

Each of the boards of directors of VeriChip and Steel Vault unanimously approved the merger agreement, based on the unanimous recommendation of the special committee of independent directors of the applicable company. The special committees for VeriChip and Steel Vault each retained independent legal and financial advisors to advise its respective committee. Steel Vault hired Hyde Park Capital Advisors LLC and VeriChip hired Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. to provide fairness opinions in connection with the transaction.

Australia steps up implantation of Microchip identification Chips

MORE Australian horses are being micro chipped to establish their true identity.

Owners now believe "chipping" is the only sure way to identify horses, especially when many breeds - Shetlands, for example - have large numbers that are black with no white markings.

Any new horse or pony registered with the Equestrian Federation now has to be chipped.

This follows amendments to the Domestic Animals Regulations 2005, which provides standards to ensure consistency in micro chipping of horses.

Horses can only be micro chipped by veterinary practitioners registered in Victoria who have completed the Australian Veterinary Association Victorian microchip implementation course.

It is now an offence under to microchip a horse without authorization.

Changes to legislation for micro chipping horses also include: Regulation of the type of microchip used; Regulation of the implantation procedure (including documentation); and Record-keeping procedures for licensed registries.

The legislation does not require mandatory micro chipping of horses but if a horse is micro chipped it must be in accordance with the legislation.

Changes came into effect on September 1.

The 'telepathy' chip that lets you turn on the TV using the power of thought

A ‘telepathy’ chip that allows people to control computers, televisions and light switches by the power of thought is being developed by British scientists.

The tiny sensor would sit on the surface of the brain, picking up the electrical activity of nerve cells and passing the signal wirelessly to a receiver on the skull.

The signal would then be used to control a cursor on a computer screen, operate electronic gadgets or steer an electric wheelchair. The chip is the brainchild of Dr Jon Spratley, 28

North American Union: Implanting microchips in national ID cards

Mexico Prepares its Citizens for the Grand Merger into the NAU

In this era of enhanced foods, enhanced bioweapons and WMDs, enhanced vaccines, enhanced military strategies, and enhanced interrogations, come enhanced driving licenses. With a magical microchip, the wizards of our corporate government have suddenly created a new world that is easily monitored, controlled, and manipulated. An enhanced driving license will contain the infamous microchip called “RFID” for radio frequency identification. These microchips can track the proles everywhere they go. Having them inserted into a driving license is the prelude to the eventual implanting of these microchips into the bodies of every human being, which many Christians believe it to be “the mark of the beast.”

Chips in official IDs raise privacy fears*

Climbing into his Volvo, outfitted with a Matrics antenna and a Motorola reader he'd bought on eBay for $190, Chris Paget cruised the streets of San Francisco with this objective: To read the identity cards of strangers, wirelessly, without ever leaving his car. It took him 20 minutes to strike hacker's gold. Zipping past Fisherman's Wharf, his scanner downloaded to his laptop the unique serial numbers of two pedestrians' electronic U.S. passport cards embedded with radio frequency identification, or RFID, tags. Within an hour, he'd "skimmed" four more of the new, microchipped PASS cards from a distance of 20 feet.

Big Brother's Tracking Microchip News Roundup

European Youth Olympic Festival to use RFID-enabled ID cards; RF-iT adds virtual tunnel to its RFID solutions; Seoul Subway to save millions with RFID ticketing; Pennsylvania lawmakers move closer to banning forced chip implants in people; Maryland hospital to use VeriChip's RFID-enabled emergency management system; Hi-G-Tek unveils new line of active RFID tags, readers.

July 9, 2009—The following are news announcements made during the last week.

European Youth Olympic Festival to Use RFID-enabled ID Cards

UPM Raflatac, a supplier of pressure-sensitive labels and RFID products located in Tampere, Finland, will supply RFID inlays for access control in support of the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF), to be held on July 18-25, in Tampere. The RFID tag passes leverage UPM Raflatac's RaceTrack high-frequency (HF) RFID products that comply with the ISO 15693 standard and operate at 13.56 MHz. Authorized individuals at EYOF will be issued integrated UPM Raflatac RFID tag identification passes, to be used to enter accommodations, dining and competition venues. The passes will also allow access to free usage of the public transportation system in Tampere. "By supporting the EYOF, we can directly show event organizers the benefits of using RFID technology and indirectly the authorized event participants," said Samuli Strömberg, UPM Raflatac's VP of marketing, in a prepared statement. The EYOF is a biennial multisport event for youth athletes from the 49 European Union member countries of the European Olympic Committee. EYOF's first summer event was hosted in Brussels, Belgium, in 1991, followed by the winter event two years later, in Aosta, Italy. In Tampere, more than 2,600 young European athletes will compete in track and field, basketball, cycling, gymnastics, volleyball, judo, swimming, tennis and handball.

RF-iT Adds Virtual Tunnel to Its RFID Solutions

RF-iT Solutions, an RFID software and consulting company based in Graz, Austria, has announced an add-on to its You-R Open middleware platform. The You-R Virtual Tunnel is designed to help companies automatically identify RFID-tagged individual components, and determine where they should be allocated during packing processes. The You-R Virtual Tunnel is able to distinguish between RFID tags moving on a conveyor belt and those that may be placed or affixed to objects near the conveyor. "By filtering out transponders located beside, but not directly on the conveyor, and by selective reads on the conveyor, we offer our customers a reliable solution to the phenomenon of false positive reads, a problem known throughout the industry," explained Dominik Berger, RF-iT's managing director, in a prepared statement. In tests the company conducted, including those with German shirt manufacturer Seidensticker, up to 50 components were clearly allocated to their packing units at a conveyor speed of one meter (3.3 feet) per second. RF-iT Solutions consultants will help customers implement the solution, and—depending on the requirements and spatial conditions of the customer's site—the solution may be provided with a single or several antennas.

Seoul Subway to Save Millions With RFID Ticketing

The Seoul Subway, which serves a city of 10 million people in South Korea, has implemented an RFID ticketing system based on technology from chipmaker STMicroelectronics (ST), based in Geneva, Switzerland. The system replaces Seoul Subway's paper tickets with RFID smart cards known as Single Journey Tickets. Each ticket contains ST's SRT512 contactless memory chip, enabling the cards to be returned and reissued to new passengers. The SRT512, specifically designed for short-range applications, complies with the ISO 14443-B standard. By recycling the tickets, Seoul Subway can save an estimated 3 billion Won (more than $2.4 million) on the cost and environmental impact of generating more than 450 million disposable paper tickets each year. With the new system, customers can purchase single-journey tickets in automated vending machines in exchange for each passenger's payment, plus a 500 Won ($0.40) deposit for the ticket. ST worked with card issuer Korea Smart Card Co. (KSCC), which operates the New Transportation System for the Seoul Metropolitan Government, to optimize the SRT512 to support the subway's ticketing system. The new single-use, reusable cards augment Seoul Subway's existing RFID ticketing system, a refillable traffic-card system called T-Money. ST and KSCC collaborated on the T-Money prepaid transportation cards, which are accepted in buses, subway and taxis, and are based on ST's ST19WR contactless smart cards.

Pennsylvania Lawmakers Move Closer to Banning Forced Chip Implants

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has unanimously passed a bill introduced by Rep. Babette Josephs (D-Philadelphia) that would make it illegal to force someone to have an identification device—such as an RFID transponder—implanted on or under his or her skin. House Bill 1175 does not specifically refer to RFID, though it defines an identification device as anything containing or transmitting personal information, such as an individual's name; address; contact information, including phone number and e-mail; date of birth; driver's license number; Social Security or state identification number; religion; ethnicity; bank or credit card information; fingerprint or any other unique identifier. Under the bill, a person would have to be at least 18 years old and of sound mind to undergo implantation, and the consent of a parent, guardian or attorney would not be considered adequate. A person found in violation would be subject to a civil penalty of up to $10,000. The individual subjected to the implantation would also be able to bring a civil action against the guilty person for actual damages. The bill was amended on the House floor to include two exemptions: an individual ordered by a state or federal court to be implanted, as part of his sentence or condition of probation or parole, and any Guantanamo Bay detainees. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. A few other states have passed similar legislation, including Wisconsin (see Wisconsin Governor Signs 'Chip Implant' Bill).

Maryland Hospital to Use VeriChip's RFID-enabled Emergency Management System

Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, Md., has signed a deal with RFID solutions provider VeriChip to employ VeriChip's VeriTrace solution for disaster preparedness and emergency management. The deal includes 1,000 implantable RFID microchips. VeriTrace consists of the microchips, a VeriTrace Bluetooth handheld interrogator, a customized Ricoh 500SE Digital Camera capable of wirelessly receiving both RFID-scanned data and GPS information, and a Web-enabled database for gathering and storing information and images captured during emergency response operations. VeriTrace was used to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Teams identify and track the remains of those who died during Hurricane Katrina (see VeriChip's VeriTrace Platform Sees Sales Boost). Since then, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, the Hawaii Department of Health, the Florida Emergency Mortuary Operations Response System (FEMORS), the medical examiner's office at the Department of Heath in New York's Erie County, and two counties in New Jersey have all purchased the system.

Hi-G-Tek Unveils New Line of Active Tags, Readers

Hi-G-Tek, a developer and manufacturer of active-RFID sensing and control solutions for tracking high-value cargo and sensitive materials, is introducing its 18.7 Secure Series, a line of active RFID interrogators, transponders and sensors designed to track and monitor sensitive cargo and materials, including fresh produce. The new line complies with the ISO 18000-7 standard and operates at 433 MHz. The series includes a model with a temperature sensor that can report, in real time, the condition of a shipment in the back of a truck. Another product in the line is a container security device, whereby loads can be locked and monitored for any instances of tampering or contamination. Hi-G-Tek says it has already received a significant purchase order for a broad range of the 18.7 Secure Series products, through the U.S. Department of Defense's RFID III indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract established by the U.S. Army on behalf of all U.S. armed services. The contract, administered by the Army's Product Manager Joint-Automatic Identification Technology (PM J-AIT) office, was awarded to four prime contractors and their subcontractors in 2008, who are competing for purchase orders from any authorized organization supporting the DOD, the U.S. Coast Guard, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), coalition partners and other foreign military agencies. The prime contractors consisted of Savi Technology, Northrop Grumman, Unisys and SPEC (see U.S. Defense Department Picks Four for RFID III). Hi-G-Tek is a Unisys subcontractor.

One wave of the arm and it's paid for

The microchip movement is one of dozens of forward-looking scenarios which some of Australia's major companies got a fix on this week courtesy of Ten Network's innovation and future scoping program. And if the microchip implant sounds just too much like a Star Trek episode for hardened business minds, London nuclear physicist, marine biologist and futurist Wolfgang Grulke has got some news: it's already happening. Already two scientists at Warwick University in the United Kingdom have microchips embedded under their skin, enabling them to send emails by just thinking. Grulke says the process is still cumbersome but by willing a cursor around a keyboard on a computer screen with their mind, they can write and send emails. "It's really the start of interfacing the chip with the nervous system," Grulke said. "Twenty years from now we [older generations] will still hate it but kids will never know a world without it." The arrival of the hip, micro chipped young is only the start of radical industry-changing trends which Grulke says big companies are struggling to address because of their reluctance for "radical innovation"

Will Your ID Soon Be a Microchip Under Your Skin?

The VeriChip is the first radio-frequency identification (RFID) microchip that’s been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in humans. The chip is the size of a long grain of rice, and can be implanted pretty much anywhere in the body (most commonly along the tricep). Depending on how it’s used, the chip could do anything from telling doctors your medical background to buying you a round at the club. Outside of human bodies, RFID is already used for a wide range of purposes. Electronic highway tolls have them and folks implant their pets with RFID chips in case they get lost. Wal-Mart tracks their shipments with RFID, which has apparently revolutionized supply chain management. There’s even one in your passport. A nightclub in Barcelona called Baja Beach has started offering chip implants to its customers, giving them access to VIP lounges and letting clubbers buy drinks by acting as a debit account. Who wants to carry a wallet or purse when the dress-code is board shorts and bikinis? Baja Beach contracted none other than VeriChip Corp. to fashion their subcutaneous membership cards. I guess last call counts as an “emergency situation.”

Heidi Montag: Over My Dead Body Would I Take A Microchip

The Hills star tells The Alex Jones Show why the implantable microchip represents the “mark of the beast”

Star of MTV’s The Hills Heidi Montag appeared on The Alex Jones Show with her fellow co-star husband Spencer Pratt to discuss how some nightclubs are introducing implantable identification microchips to allow customers to access VIP areas. Montag told Jones, “You would have to kill me before I get a chip.”

Montag said that as a Christian she had always been aware of “the mark of the beast” and the content of the book of Revelations but over the last month she and her husband had arrived at a “new awakening” concerning what is going on in the world after one of her music producers showed them Alex Jones’ latest documentary The Obama Deception.

“The fact that people are even already OK with this is sickening, I could throw up right now,” she added, “A chip? are we dogs? Not even dogs deserve chips.”

“It says in the bible that it’s the mark of the beast and that is a sign of worshipping the devil - so over my dead body would I ever get a chip in my body,” said Montag, adding, “My body belongs to Jesus Christ, to God alone, and no one will ever put anything in me, I will not worship

the devil, I will not be conformed to this world, that will not happen.”

The subject of implantable microchips has vehemently left the realm of paranoia and is now a major concern as governments around the world prepare to roll out national ID cards which many fear could be replaced by mandatory implantable chips in the not too distant future.

***WATCHMAN...Is she a Christian? I do not know but just by being on MTV I wonder...

TO FIGHT DEFLATION, ABOLISH CASH. COULD JAPAN MAKE REALITY OF ‘SCIENCE FICTION’?

With recovery elusive, a population doddering into old age and perhaps a decade of deflation in prospect, Japan may start mulling the most radical monetary policy of all — the abolition of cash.

Unorthodox, untried and, said one Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi strategist, ‘in the realms of economic science fiction’, the recommendation has nevertheless begun floating around Tokyo’s corridors of power and economists have described Japan as particularly suitable as a testing ground.

The search for more outré economic policies continues, despite the recent surge in the Nikkei 225 index. The market may be reflecting soaring Chinese investment, rising consumer confidence and other cheerful data but economists see few long-term beacons of hope for Japan.

Other extreme ideas mooted by the financial authorities include a tax on physical currency or introducing one to operate alongside the yen.

All three ideas are based on a theory concerning interest rates and the concept that a nominal rate of zero — as Japan has now lived with for much of the past decade — may be too high. In Japan’s case, the theory would suggest that nominal rates of -4 per cent might be closer to what is required to rescue the economy from another deflationary spiral. Having agreed that this might be necessary, the next question is how it could be imposed.

Several MPs in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party believe the abolition of cash, though politically radioactive, might be technically feasible. Richard Jerram, a senior economist with Macquarie bank, told investors that ‘the proposal has become practical with the broad penetration of electronic money and credit cards in Japan’.

He said that all the proposals were radical but worth consideration for Japan. Without physical cash, a central bank can set rates exactly where it likes, runs the argument. Mr. Jerram said: ‘At the heart of the problem of achieving negative nominal interest rates is the idea that physical currency is an anonymous bearer bond with a nominal interest rate of zero.’ While a central bank can impose positive or negative rates on non-physical assets, transmitting those rates to physical currency is a huge challenge. By permanently removing cash from a system, he added, policymakers are robbed of the excuse that zero is the lowest that nominal rates can go as a deflation-fighting tool.

In theory, many Japanese could easily make the leap into a cashless world. The country has six main competing cashless payment systems, many of them embedded into mobile phones. Including Oyster-type cards issued by public transport companies, industry sources estimate that there are about 120 million cashless payment chips sitting in Japan’s wallets and handbags, waiting to be swiped

Over the last 18 months the U.S. has launched more than 50 drone attacks, mostly in south and north Waziristan. U.S. officials claim nine of the top 20 al-Qaida figures have been killed. That success is reportedly in part thanks to the mysterious electronic devices, dubbed "chips" or "pathrai" (the Pashto word for a metal device), which have become a source of fear, intrigue and fascination.

Life With Big Brother

It's 10 p.m. You may not know where your child is. but the implanted Microchip does.

The chip will also know if your child has fallen and needs immediate help. Once paramedics arrive , the chip will also be able to tell the rescue workers which drugs little Johnny or Janic is allergic to. At the hospital, the chip will tell doctors his or her complete medical history.

And of course ,when you arrive to pick up your child , settling the hospital bill with your health insurance policy will be a simple matter of waving your own chip -the one embedded in your hand .

To some, this may sound far-fetched .But the technology for such chips is no longer the stuff of science fiction, And it may soon offer many other benefits besides locating lost children or elderly Alzheimer patients.

"Down the line ,it could be used as credit cards and such ,"says Chris Hables Gray , a professor of cultural studies of science and technology at the University of Great Falls in Montana, "A lot of people won't have to carry wallets anymore ,"he says, "what the implications are for this technology ,in the long run, is profound.”

Indeed, some are already wondering what this sort of technology may do to the sense of personal privacy and liberty.

“Any technology of this kind is easily abusive of personal privacy. ”says Lee Tien, senior staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. “If a kind is trackable, do you want other people to be able to track your kid ?It’s a double-edged sword.”

Test Marketing the Mark of the Beast

A prototype of an implantable biometric chip capable of marking an individual's precise location and of monitoring him or her for life is gaining support.

It was named Best in Show of 170 International Science Exhibitors last year, and released in its "First Phase" wristwatch format called Guardian Angel soon after.

According to information released last year the implantable transceiver "sends and receives data and can be continuously tracked by GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) technology.

The transceiver's power supply and actuation system are unlike anything ever created.

When implanted within a body, the device is powered electromechanically through the movement

of muscles, and it can be activated either by the 'wearer' or by the monitoring facility."

The Patented RFID Ink Tattoo by SOMARK

SOMARK has patented ID system based on an ink tattoo with a chipless RFID function. This technology allows SOMARK to address food-export trade bans, issues in identification, trace ability, food supply transparency, animal productivity, bioterrorism and credence attributes.

The ID ‘tag’ or tattoo in the SOMARK system is special ink deposited in a unique barcode pattern. The ink is the same for every tattoo, however the pattern in which the ink is injected under the surface of the skin or on the surface of an object is different for each item to be identified. This unique pattern is what gives each item a different and unique number, just like a fingerprint.

Tracking Microchips Everywhere: a Future Vision

Here's a vision of the not-so-distant future:

Microchips with antennas will be embedded in virtually everything you buy, wear, drive and read, allowing retailers and law enforcement to track consumer items _ and, by extension, consumers _ wherever they go, from a distance.

A seamless, global network of electronic "sniffers" will scan radio tags in myriad public settings, identifying people and their tastes instantly so that customized ads, "live spam," may be beamed at them.

In "Smart Homes," sensors built into walls, floors and appliances will inventory possessions, record eating habits, monitor medicine cabinets all the while, silently reporting data to marketers eager for a peek into the occupants' private lives.

Science fiction?

In truth, much of the radio frequency identification technology that enables objects and people to be tagged and tracked wirelessly already exists and new and potentially intrusive uses of it are being patented, perfected and deployed.

RFID technology, which couples highly miniaturized computers with radio antennas to broadcast information about sales and buyers to company databases.

Already, microchips are turning up in some computer printers, car keys and tires, on shampoo bottles and department store clothing tags. They're also in library books and "contactless" payment cards (such as American Express' "Blue" and ExxonMobil's "Speedpass.")

Companies say the RFID tags improve supply-chain efficiency, cut theft, and guarantee that brand-name products are authentic, not counterfeit. At a store, RFID doorways could scan your purchases automatically as you leave, eliminating tedious checkouts.

At home, convenience is a selling point: RFID-enabled refrigerators could warn about expired milk, generate weekly shopping lists, even send signals to your interactive TV, so that you see "personalized" commercials for foods you have a history of buying. Sniffers in your microwave might read a chip-equipped TV dinner and cook it without instruction.

"We've seen so many different uses of the technology," says Dan Mullen, president of AIM Global, a national association of data collection businesses, including RFID, "and we're probably still just scratching the surface in terms of places RFID can be used."

The problem, critics say, is that microchipped products might very well do a whole lot more.

With tags in so many objects, relaying information to databases that can be linked to credit and bank cards, almost no aspect of life may soon be safe from the prying eyes of corporations and governments, says Mark Rasch, former head of the computer-crime unit of the U.S. Justice Department.

By placing sniffers in strategic areas, companies can invisibly "rifle through people's pockets, purses, suitcases, briefcases, luggage _ and possibly their kitchens and bedrooms _ anytime of the day or night," says Rasch, now managing director of technology at FTI Consulting Inc., a Baltimore-based company.

In an RFID world, "You've got the possibility of unauthorized people learning stuff about who you are, what you've bought, how and where you've bought it ... It's like saying, 'Well, who wants to look through my medicine cabinet?'"

He imagines a time when anyone from police to identity thieves to stalkers might scan locked car trunks, garages or home offices from a distance. "Think of it as a high-tech form of Dumpster diving," says Rasch, who's also concerned about data gathered by "spy" appliances in the home.

"It's going to be used in unintended ways by third parties _ not just the government, but private investigators, marketers, lawyers building a case against you ..."

Presently, the radio tag most commercialized in America is the so-called "passive" emitter, meaning it has no internal power supply. Only when a reader powers these tags with a squirt of electrons do they broadcast their signal, indiscriminately, within a range of a few inches to 20 feet.

Not as common, but increasing in use, are "active" tags, which have internal batteries and can transmit signals, continuously, as far as low-orbiting satellites. Active tags pay tolls as motorists to zip through tollgates; they also track wildlife, such as sea lions.

Retailers and manufacturers want to use passive tags to replace the bar code, for tracking inventory. These radio tags transmit Electronic Product Codes, number strings that allow trillons of objects to be uniquely identified. Some transmit specifics about the item, such as price, though not the name of the buyer.

However, "once a tagged item is associated with a particular individual, personally identifiable information can be obtained and then aggregated to develop a profile," the U.S. Government Accountability Office concluded in a 2005 report on RFID.

Federal agencies and law enforcement already buy information about individuals from commercial data brokers, companies that compile computer dossiers on millions of individuals from public records, credit applications and many other sources, then offer summaries for sale. These brokers, unlike credit bureaus, aren't subject to provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act of 1970, which gives consumers the right to correct errors and block access to their personal records.

That, and the ever-increasing volume of data collected on consumers, is worrisome, says Mike Hrabik, chief technology officer at Solutionary, a computer-security firm in Bethesda, Md. "Are companies using that information incorrectly, and are they giving it out inappropriately? I'm

sure that's happening. Should we be concerned? Yes."

Even some industry proponents recognize risks. Elliott Maxwell, a research fellow at Pennsylvania State University who serves as a policy adviser to EPCglobal, the industry's standard-setting group, says data broadcast by microchips can easily be intercepted, and misused, by high-tech thieves.

As RFID goes mainstream and the range of readers increases, it will be "difficult to know who is gathering what data, who has access to it, what is being done with it, and who should be held responsible for it," Maxwell wrote in RFID Journal, an industry publication.

The recent growth of the RFID industry has been staggering: From 1955 to 2005, cumulative sales of radio tags totaled 2.4 billion; last year alone, 2.24 billion tags were sold worldwide, and analysts project that by 2017 cumulative sales will top 1 trillion _ generating more than $25

billion in annual revenues for the industry.

Heady forecasts like these energize chip proponents, who insist that RFID will result in enormous savings for businesses. Each year, retailers lose $57 billion from administrative failures, supplier fraud and employee theft, according to a recent survey of 820 retailers by

Checkpoint Systems, an RFID manufacturer that specializes in store security devices.

Privacy concerns, some RFID supporters say, are overblown. One, Mark Roberti, editor of RFID Journal, says the notion that businesses would conspire to create high-resolution portraits of people is "simply silly."

Corporations know Americans are sensitive about their privacy, he says, and are careful not to alienate consumers by violating it. Besides, "All companies keep their customer data close to the vest ... There's absolutely no value in sharing it. Zero."

Industry officials, too, insist that addressing privacy concerns is paramount. As American Express spokeswoman Judy Tenzer says, "Security and privacy are a top priority for American Express in everything we do."

But industry documents suggest a different line of thinking, privacy experts say.

A 2005 patent application by American Express itself describes how RFID-embedded objects carried by shoppers could emit "identification signals" when queried by electronic "consumer trackers." The system could identify people, record their movements, and send them video ads that might offer "incentives" or "even the emission of a scent."

RFID readers could be placed in public venues, including "a common area of a school, shopping center, bus station or other place of public accommodation," according to the application, which is still pending _ and which is not alone.

In 2006, IBM received patent approval for an invention it called, "Identification and tracking of persons using RFID-tagged items." One stated purpose: To collect information about people that could be "used to monitor the movement of the person through the store or other areas."

Once somebody enters a store, a sniffer "scans all identifiable RFID tags carried on the person," and correlates the tag information with sales records to determine the individual's "exact identity." A device known as a "person tracking unit" then assigns a tracking number to the shopper "to monitor the movement of the person through the store or other areas."

But as the patent makes clear, IBM's invention could work in other public places, "such as shopping malls, airports, train stations, bus stations, elevators, trains, airplanes, restrooms, sports arenas, libraries, theaters, museums, etc." (RFID could even help "follow a particular crime suspect through public areas.")

Another patent, obtained in 2003 by NCR Corp., details how camouflaged sensors and cameras would record customers' wanderings through a store, film their facial expressions at displays, and time _ to the second _ how long shoppers hold and study items.

Why? Such monitoring "allows one to draw valuable inferences about the behavior of large numbers of shoppers," the patent states.

Then there's a 2001 patent application by Procter & Gamble, "Systems and methods for tracking consumers in a store environment." This one lays out an idea to use heat sensors to track and record "where a consumer is looking, i.e., which way she is facing, whether she is bending over or crouching down to look at a lower shelf."

The system could space sensors 8 feet apart, in ceilings, floors, shelving and displays, so they could capture signals transmitted every 1.5 seconds by microchipped shopping carts.

The documents "raise the hair on the back of your neck," says Liz McIntyre, co-author of "Spychips," a book that is critical of the industry. "The industry has long promised it would never use this technology to track people. But these patent records clearly suggest otherwise."

Corporations take issue with that, saying that patent filings shouldn't be used to predict a company's actions.

"We file thousands of patents every year, which are designed to protect concepts or ideas," Paul Fox, a spokesman for Procter & Gamble, says. "The reality is that many of those ideas and concepts never see the light of day."

And what of his company's 2001 patent application? "I'm not aware of any plans to use that," Fox says.

Sandy Hughes, P&G's global privacy executive, adds that Procter & Gamble has no intention of using any technologies _ RFID or otherwise _ to track individuals. The idea of the 2001 filing, she says, is to monitor how groups of people react to store displays, "not individual consumers."

NCR and American Express echoed those statements. IBM declined to comment for this story.

"Not every element in a patent filing is necessarily something we would pursue....," says Tenzer, the American Express spokeswoman. "Under no circumstances would we use this technology without a customer's permission."

McIntyre has her doubts.

In the marketing world of today, she says, "data on individual consumers is gold, and the onlything preventing these companies from abusing

technologies like RFID to get at that gold is public scrutiny."

RFID dates to World War II, when Britain put transponders in Allied aircraft to help radar crews distinguish them from German fighters. In the 1970s, the U.S. government tagged trucks entering and leaving secure facilities such as the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and a decade later, they were used to track livestock and railroad cars.

In 2003, the U.S. Department of Defense and Wal-Mart gave RFID a mammoth push, mandating that suppliers radio tag all crates and cartons. To that point, the cost of tags had simply been too high to make tagging pallets let alone individual items viable. In 1999, passive tags cost nearly $2 apiece.

Since then, rising demand and production of microchips _ along with technological advances _ have driven tag prices down to a range of 7 to 15 cents. At that price, the technology is "well-suited at a case and pallet level," says Mullen, of the industry group AIM Global.

John Simley, a spokesman for Wal-Mart, says tracking products in real-time helps ensure product freshness and lowers the chances that items will be out of stock. By reducing loss and waste in the supply chain, RFID "allows us to keep our prices that much lower."

Katherine Albrecht, founder of CASPIAN, an anti-RFID group, says, "Nobody cares about radio tags on crates and pallets. But if we don't keep RFID off of individual consumer items, our stores will one day turn into retail 'zoos' where the customer is always on exhibit."

So, how long will it be before you find an RFID tag in your underwear? The industry isn't saying, but some analysts speculate that within a decade tag costs may dip below a penny, the threshold at which nearly everything could be chipped.

To businesses slammed by counterfeiters _ pharmaceuticals, for one _ that's not a bad thing. Sales of fake drugs cost drug makers an estimated $46 billion a year. In 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended that RFID be incorporated throughout the supply chain as a way of making sure consumers get authentic drugs.

In the United States, Pfizer has already begun chipping all 30- and 100-count bottles of Viagra, one of the most counterfeited drugs.

Chips could be embedded in other controlled or potentially dangerous items such as firearms and explosives, to make them easier to track. This was mentioned in IBM's patent documents.

Still, the idea that tiny radio chips might be in their socks and shoes doesn't sit well with Americans. At least, that's what Fleishman-Hillard Inc., a public-relations firm in St. Louis, found in 2001 when it surveyed 317 consumers for the industry.

Seventy-eight percent of those queried reacted negatively to RFID when privacy was raised. "More than half claimed to be extremely or very concerned," the report said, noting that the term "Big Brother" was "used in 15 separate cases to describe the technology."

It also found that people bridled at the idea of having "Smart Tags" in their homes. One surveyed person remarked: "Where money is to be made the privacy of the individual will be compromised."

In 2002, Fleishman-Hillard produced another report for the industry that counseled RFID makers to "convey (the) inevitability of technology," and to develop a plan to "neutralize the opposition," by adopting friendlier names for radio tags such as "Bar Code II" and "Green Tag."

And in a 2003 report, Helen Duce, the industry's trade group director in Europe, wrote that "the lack of clear benefits to consumers could present a problem in the 'real world,'" particularly if privacy issues were stirred by "negative press coverage."

(Though the reports were marked "Confidential," they were later found archived on an industry trade group's Web site.)

The Duce report's recommendations: Tell consumers that RFID is regulated, that RFID is just a new and improved bar code, and that retailers will announce when an item is radio tagged, and deactivate the tags at check-out upon a customer's request.

Actually, in the United States, RFID is not federally regulated. And while bar codes identify product categories, radio tags carry unique serial numbers that _ when purchased with a credit card, frequent shopper card or contactless card _ can be linked to specific shoppers.

And, unlike bar codes, RFID tags can be read through almost anything except metal and water, without the holder's knowledge.

EPCglobal, the industry's standard-setting body, has issued public policy guidelines that call for retailers to put a thumbnail-sized logo "EPC," for Electronic Product Code _ on all radio tagged packaging. The group also suggests that merchants notify shoppers that RFID tags can be removed, discarded or disabled.

Critics say the guidelines are voluntary, vague and don't penalize violators. They want federal and state oversight something the industry has vigorously opposed particularly after two RFID manufacturers, Checkpoint Systems and Sensormatic, announced last year that they are marketing tags designed to be embedded in such items as shoes.

Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, says, "I don't think there's any basis ... for consumers to have to think that their clothing is tracking them."

USA Vermont Issues Licenses with RFID Tags

Vermont has become the third state to begin issuing enhanced driver’s licenses with radio frequency tags that also serve as official identification cards at U.S. border crossing points.

It did so under a program authorized by the Homeland Security Department. The new card is voluntary and costs $25 more than a standard license.

The licenses can be scanned at a distance of 20 to 30 feet at U.S. border crossings. The RFID chips in the licenses emit a reference number that must be checked against a DHS database to obtain personal information.

RADIO CHIP COMING SOON TO YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE?

Privacy advocates are issuing warnings about a new radio chip plan that ultimately could provide electronic identification for every adult in the U.S. and allow agents to compile attendance lists at anti-government rallies simply by walking through the assembly.

The proposal, which has earned the support of Janet Napolitano, the newly chosen chief of the Department of Homeland Security, would embed radio chips in driver's licenses, or "enhanced driver's licenses."

"Enhanced driver's licenses give confidence that the person holding the card is the person who is supposed to be holding the card, and it's less elaborate than REAL ID," Napolitano said in a Washington Times report.

REAL ID is a plan for a federal identification system standardized across the nation that so alarmed governors many states have adopted formal plans to oppose it. However, a privacy advocate today told WND that the EDLs are many times worse.

Radio talk show host and identity chip expert Katherine Albrecht said REAL ID earned the opposition of Christians because of its resemblance to the biblical "mark of the beast," civil libertarians opposed it for its "big brother" connotations and others worried about identity theft issues with the proposed databases.

"We got rid of the REAL ID program, but [this one] is way more insidious," she said.

Enhanced driver's licenses have built-in radio chips providing an identifying number or information that can be accessed by a remote reading unit while the license is inside a wallet or purse.

The technology already had been implemented in Washington state, where it is promoted as an alternative to a passport for traveling to Canada. So far, the program is optional

Farmers fight EU plans to micro-chip tag 30 million sheep

Revolt erupts over proposals ordering electronic identity for every animal

Britain's sheep farmers are on the brink of revolt over European commission proposals ordering them to electronically tag and identify every single animal in the 30 million-strong national flock.

They claim the move will devastate the industry and could force farmers on to the streets in protest if Brussels insists on imposing regulations they claim are "crazy" and "unnecessary".

The regulations, to be introduced in January next year, mean each sheep must be fitted with an electronic ear tag.

Humans 'will be implanted with microchips' prominent academic says

All Australians could be implanted with microchips for tracking and identification within the next two or three generations, a prominent academic says. Michael G Michael from the University of Wollongong's School of Information Systems and Technology, has coined the term "uberveillance" to describe the emerging trend of all-encompassing surveillance.

"Uberveillance is not on the outside looking down, but on the inside looking out through a microchip that is embedded in our bodies," Dr Michael told ninemsn. Microchips are commonly implanted into animals to reveal identification details when scanned and similar devices have been used with Alzheimers patients.

US company VeriChip is already using implantable microchips, which store a 16-digit unique identification number, on humans for medical purposes. Another form of uberveillance is the use of bracelets worn by dangerous prisoners which use global positioning systems to pinpoint their movements.

But Dr Michael said the technology behind uberveillance would eventually lead to a black box small enough to fit on a tiny microchip and implanted in our bodies. This could also allow someone to be located in an emergency or for the identification of corpses after a large scale disaster or terrorist attack.

"This black box will then be a witness to our actual movements, words — perhaps even our thoughts —-and play a similar role to the black box placed in an aircraft," he said. He also predicted that microchip implants and their infrastructure could eliminate the need for e-passports, e-tags, and secure ID cards.

"Microchipping I think will eventually become compulsory in the context of identification within the frame of national security," he said. .

New ID Scanners Can View Documents Through Your Car, Clothes Up To 50 Feet Away

The federal government has already deployed new detection machines that can scan citizens without their knowledge from as far as 50 feet away and "read" their personal documents such as passports or driver's licenses.

The Homeland Security Department touts the high-tech devices as increasing security at border crossings, but privacy advocates are raising all sorts of red flags.

Critics say the new machines, which read one's personal information right through a wallet or purse, do so without consent or a warrant and may set a worrisome precedent.

The devices, called Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) machines, allow officials to read remotely any passports, pass cards, and driver's licenses that contain special chips with personal information.

The RFIDs are so sensitive that, even before a vehicle pulls up at a border checkpoint, agents already will have on their computer screen the personal data of the passengers,

including each person's name, date o f birth, nationality, passport or ID number, and even a digitized photo.

The new gadgets are in place, or soon will be, at five border crossings: Blaine, Wash.; Buffalo; Detroit; Nogales, Ariz.; and San Ysidro, Calif.

The information in these tags could be copied on to another, off-the-shelf tag, which might be used to impersonate the legitimate holder of the card if U.S. Department of Homeland Security agents at the border didn't see the card itself, the researchers said.

Another danger is that the tags can be read from as far as 150 feet away in some situations, so criminals could read them without being detected.

Although the tags don't contain personal information, they could be used to track a person's movements through ongoing surveillance, they said.

Can Mark Of the Beast Technologies in retailing really take off?

Companies have been experimenting for well over a decade with the use of physiological biometrics - unique physical characteristics like fingerprints - as a means to identify individuals.

In retailing, the applications drawing the most attention... is using biometrics to securely link a shopper's bank account, payment cards or loyalty card to finger measurements and data points.

Shoppers will no longer have to carry payment or loyalty cards.

It is purported that adoption of the technology will help them combat fraud and identify theft.

With the proper hardware, the solution works online too. It gives Internet users a fast, easy and secure way to identify themselves and interact on the Web. By simply sliding a finger on a sensor, users can securely access their Web-based accounts with no need to remember IDs, passwords and account numbers.

Shoppers to use wave of the hand micro-chip to pay for goods

Barclaycard has announced it is investing a seven-figure sum in "contactless payment" technology

The futuristic systems, like those used by Tom Cruise in the science fiction film Minority Report, are being developed by scientists for Barclaycard.

The company has announced it is investing a seven-figure sum in "contactless payment" technology.

This allows customers to use a micro-chip implanted in their hand or everyday items they carry around with them - such as mobile phones, key fobs or even their eyes, hands or fingerprints - to make payments.

It means shoppers will no longer have to rely on cards.

Barclaycard, which is part of Barclays, has already introduced a new-style cash machine in the United Arab Emirates enabling people to use their fingerprints to withdraw money and shoppers in the UK may soon be able to use the same technology.

Antony Jenkins, chief executive of Barclaycard, said: "It's possible we'll see an end to plastic in the next five to 10 years with new technologies to take its place emerging now. It could turn out to be one of the shortest lived payment methods in history, going from being ubiquitous to a museum piece in the same way as the video cassette."

Barclaycard also aims to have one million customers upgraded to its contactless payment system OnePulse by the end of the year. OnePulse enables people to buy items for less than £10 by touching their card against a sensor, without even having to take it out of their wallet. It

can also be used as an Oyster card on London transport.

Barclaycard said people may soon be able to hover their hand or mobile over the price label of an item in a shop, confirm their purchase and take it away without having to go to a checkout or get a receipt.

Mr Jenkins said: "If I had said to you 10 years ago that you couldn't pay with a cheque at the supermarket, you wouldn't have believed me. That is now the reality, and we see plastic cards going the same way eventually."

Farmers See 'Mark of the Beast' in RFID Livestock Tags

A group of community farmers, some of them Amish, are challenging rules requiring the tagging of livestock with RFID chips, saying the devices are a "mark of the beast."

Michigan and federal authorities say the radio frequency identification devices (RFID) will help monitor the travels of bovine and other livestock diseases.

"Use of a numbering system for their premises and/or electronic numbering system for their animals constitutes some form of a 'mark of the beast' and/or represents an infringement of their 'dominion over cattle and all living things' in violation of their fundamental religious beliefs," according to the farmers' lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Thisistheend... As radio frequency identification devices become a daily part of the electronic age, RFID technology is increasingly coming under fire for allegedly being the mark of Satan. The technology is fast becoming a part of passports and payment cards and is widely expected to

replace bar-code labels on consumer goods.

Is This The End Of Credit Cards?

Plastic cards could become a thing of the past after Barclaycard announced it was investing a seven-figure sum in new ways to make payments.-

"The chips on credit cards now have incredible untapped capability, but the plastic around the chip limits its potential.-

Take the plastic away and the possibilities are endless."

Rich Mexicans turn to microchips to halt kidnappers

Kidnapping is big business in Mexico these days, with the incidence rate about 40% higher since 2004, now hitting about 6,500 abductions a year.

The wealthiest are turning to technology for protection, by implanting tiny transmitters under their skin. A company caled Xega is now selling a small chip about the size of a grain of rice, which reportedly transmits location information to a satellite or GPS. Most people get the chips injected into their arms between the skin and muscle where they cannot be seen.

If Xega subscribers fear they are being kidnapped, they can hit a panic button to alert the company, which then calls police and feeds the location info to them.

At $4,000 for the unit and $2,200 a year in additional fees, it isn't cheap, but still in striking range for a middle class that is increasingly being targeted by kidnappers.

Satellites track Mexico kidnap victims with chips

Affluent Mexicans, terrified of soaring kidnapping rates, are spending thousands of dollars to implant tiny transmitters under their skin so satellites can help find them tied up in a safe house or stuffed in the trunk of a car.

Detractors say the chip is little more than a gadget that serves no real security purpose.

The company injects the crystal-encased chip, the size and shape of a grain of rice, into clients' bodies with a syringe.

A transmitter in the chip then sends radio signals to a larger device carried by the client with a global positioning system in it, Xega says.

A satellite can then pinpoint the location of a person in distress.

Move over RFID, here comes the MMEA chip

Despite efforts by proponents of implantable identification microchips to popularize them, most Americans are strongly against the use of VeriChip.

There has been widespread opposition to the product as these microchips not only allow authorities to control ones private life, but there is also the danger of hackers getting their hands on personal information.

The VeriChip seems to have been only a means of distracting the public from a far more sophisticated project, conducted by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) -- the central research and development organization for the US Defense Department.

DARPA has been investing in a new implantable chip called Multiple Micro Electrode Array (MMEA); a chip which is surgically implanted directly into a human nerve or into specific area of the brain and connects the brain to a computer.

Stalkers Using GPS Devices To Track Victims

A new GPS tracking device can be slipped into a vehicle and it'll track where a person drives, when they stop and how fast they go.

It costs less than $200, and parents of teenagers such as Kansas City, Kan., mother Rebecca Zirkle say they love it. Local police, however, warn women to watch out for them.

"It's not a spying technique for me as much as it is an ability to get to her if she's in trouble or if she shows up missing," Zirkle said.

"I want to be able to save her." Zirkle's daughter Sara also has two speeding tickets. With the GPS device, every time Sara speeds, her mother fires up the computer and finds out about it.

There's nothing illegal about it if the parent using the device owns the car and wants to track their teenager, but a stalker could hide the device in a vehicle to spy on a victim.

Police said it has already happened. Jackson County, Mo., prosecutors charged a 20-year-old Kansas City man, Raymundo Munoz, with violation of a protection order after his estranged girlfriend found a GPS tracking device hidden on her gas tank.

Munoz denies stalking his ex and said he didn't put the device on her vehicle. Court documents tell a different story.

The young woman said she became suspicious after Munoz threatened her, saying, "Watch what you do because I know if you are lying."

Sgt. Kevin Colon works in the Kansas City Police Department's domestic violence unit and said police across the country are starting to see similar cases

Is Technology Going Too Far With Spy Phones?

Most cell phone users make the assumption that their phone conversations are private. But that might not be the case.

New technology, called spy phones, allows people to track others' calls and even listen to what they say.

Several Internet companies offer software that can be downloaded onto another person's phone.

Why? Among the promotions for this software: catch a cheating spouse, track your teenager, check up on your employees.

Once downloaded, you will get a text message whenever a call is made from that phone, telling you what number is being called.

You will get a log on your computer of every call that goes out or comes into the phone, how long the calls last.

You can even read the text messages sent and received.

And in the case of a program called Flexispy, you can call into the phone with the software and listen in on the conversation as it is happening.

"It's pretty scary," says Mort Rosenthal, the CEO of Enterprise Mobile in Watertown.

He thinks the technology has gone too far, and believes it could be a hard problem to manage.

It would require counter technology or government regulation

Auditor General pushes for GPS tracking of sex offenders

Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner favors the idea of using global positioning satellite technology to track the location of known sex offenders.

At least 27 counties now use GPS to keep tabs on sex offenders, but Wagner wants to see legislation that would allow a statewide GPS monitoring program.

Wagner wants five years of GPS tracking for offenders who have tried to conceal their home address, and for those who have victimized children. "

You can get GPS technology when you are in a golf cart, playing on a golf court.

But we are not utilizing GPS technology to protect our children.

There's something seriously wrong here," Wagner says.

That view is echoed by Dauphin County Republican Representative John Payne.

He says most people don't realize that officials do not know the whereabouts of about ten percent of the state's registered sex offenders.

Payne says, "I think if they knew that we have almost a thousand sexual predators where we have no idea where they are at, we can't find them in Pennsylvania, they would be outraged."

The selling point for implanting biochips beneath your skin is that they cannot be stolen.

The selling point for implanting biochips beneath your skin is that they cannot be stolen.

They can be used to access ATM’s, pay bills, sign contracts, verify your identity--all without your wallet--and locate lost or kidnaped children.

Should you, yourself, become lost or disabled, a global array of satellites will locate you, or any person who has been implanted with a SIB (Subdermally Implanted Biochip) anywhere on the planet.

A SIB can contain complete, valuable medical data about its wearer, saving lives in trauma cases. It can also index the wearer’s criminal record, voting record, party affiliation,

and level of access to government facilities and benefits, all without the wearer knowing exactly what’s in there.

Citizens will just have to take the government’s word that everything is kosher.

Eventually, governments will insist that all citizens have SIBs.

You will not be able to use your bank, open home utility accounts, nor sign contracts unless fitted with a SIB, for ‘security purposes.’

One day, your car won't start and you won't be able to get a tow truck nor money to repair it because it your SIB chip is not working.

The bank’s ATM won’t accept your SIB’s code, yet you see it accepting the SIB’s of other customers.

Your spouse will call from the grocery store, saying her chip also isn’t working and she can’t buy food for the kids.

Once, stores accepted both cash and SIB’s, but by edict of the Federal Reserve System, no one may use cash nor credit cards any more. All for reasons of ‘national security’ of course.

After hours of begging a government agency for an answer, it will turn out that a 20 year old clerk in Scumpond, Mass.,

put a hold on your whole family’s chips because of an unpaid parking ticket attributed to your vehicle’s license plate number.

You shout that you have never even been to Scumpond, Mass., but it falls on deaf ears.

RFID embedded in new Passports

The U.S. Department of State announced recently that it began production of the new passport card.

The passport card was designed as a more convenient alternative to a passport book. It can be used for land and sea travel.

It is not valid for international travel by air. Starting in June 2009, people will need to show a passport or equivalent document to pass at a port of entry.

The passport card contains a vicinity-read radio frequency identification chip. The feature is intended to facilitate the frequent travel of U.S. citizens living in border communities and to meet Department of Homeland Security's operational needs at land borders.

The passport card contains security features to prevent counterfeiting and forgery. Also, each card comes with a protective sleeve to stop unauthorized reading or tracking when it is not in use.

"There is no personal information written to the RFID chip. The chip points to a stored record in secure government databases," states the government notice.

"With RFID technology, Customs and Border Protection inspectors will be able to access photographs and other biographical information stored in secure government databases before the traveler reaches the inspection station."

Trend with resorts to use RFID on ski passes

Embedding RFID tags into ski passes, of course, is nothing new, as it's been a common practice in Europe for many years, and a growing number of U.S. ski resorts have started embracing the practice as well.

Vail Resorts is utilizing newer, ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) passive EPC Gen 2 tags, which operate at 900 MHz and can be read from much greater distances than HF tags.

***WATCHMAN... I told you these chips can be read at much longer distances than they are admitting...

Starting next winter, lift ticket scanners at all of Vail's resorts will use handheld readers to collect the unique identification number encoded to each season pass as skiers and snowboarders approach base lifts.

The reader will transmit the ID, in order to perform a query to ascertain whether the pass ID is valid.

If it is, the software will send the pass holder's digital image, as well as personal data, such as name and birth date, back to the handheld.

The employee will then compare the image with the actual skier or snowboarder.

The company does plan to continue examining other ways in which RFID could be of use to the Vail resorts.

"We run hotels, restaurants...we have lots of different businesses, and we think this single piece of plastic [the season pass] can be leveraged for more than just accessing a lift,"

said the resort's chief information officer, hinting that RFID-based payment for food or services or hotel room access-control applications could be among future applications.

**Watchman helper comment**All of these new uses for RFID are being done to get people used to the idea, to lessen the fears and the resistance of the public when the mark of the beast emerges.

U.K. to Begin Microchipping Prisoners

The British government is developing a plan to track current and former prisoners by means of microchips implanted under the skin, drawing intense criticism from probation officers and civil rights groups.

As a way to reduce prison crowding, many British prisoners are currently released under electronic monitoring, carried out by means of an ankle bracelet that transmits signals like those used by mobile phones.

Now the Ministry of Justice is exploring the possibility of injecting prisoners in the back of the arm with a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip that contains information about their name, address and criminal record.

Such chips, which contain a built-in antenna, could be scanned by special readers.

The implantation of RFID chips in luggage, pets and livestock has become increasingly popular in recent years.

In addition to monitoring incarcerated prisoners, the ministry hopes to use the chips on those who are on probation or other conditional release.

By including a satellite uplink system in the chip, police would be able to use global positioning system (GPS) technology to track subjects' exact locations at all times.

According to advocates of such a measure, this could help keep sex offenders away from "forbidden" zones like schools

Secret Bilderberg Agenda To Microchip All Americans Leaked

Elitists want to microchip Americans in name of fighting terrorism

Sources from inside the 2008 Bilderberg meeting have leaked the details of what elitists had discussed in Chantilly Virginia this month and the talking points were ominous

- a plan to microchip Americans under the pretext of fighting terrorist groups which will be identified as blonde haired, blue eyed westerners.

The information provided this year is bone-chilling for those who have tracked the development of the plan to make the general public consider implanted microchips.

"Under the heading of resisting terrorism there were points made about how the terrorist organizations are recruiting people who do not look like terrorists

- blonde, blue eyed boys - they're searching hard for those types to become the new mad bombers,"

- the blue eyed blonde haired Al-Qaeda line is a familiar talking point that has been pushed in the News and within other Neo-Con circles

in an attempt to turn the anti-terror apparatus around to target dissidents, protesters and the American people in general.

The Bilderbergers discussed the microchipping of humans on a mass scale, which would be introduced under the pretext of fighting terrorism whereby the "good guys"

who would be allowed to travel freely from airports so long as their microchip could be scanned and the information stored in a database.

The idea was also sold on the basis that it would help hospital staff treat a patient in an emergency situation because a scan of the chip would provide instantaneous access to health details.

The Bilderbergers were talking about subdermally implanted chips and not merely RFID chips contained in clothing.

The discussion took place in a main conference hall and was part of the agenda, not an off-hand remark in the hotel bar.

Canada chips credit cards

It is expected that Canada will move to chip technology over the next 3 years, and the cards are being tested now. Cards are being embedded with a microchip, or a tiny computer.

Transactions with chip cards are 40% faster. If someone tries to pry open the card and take it apart, it expose the device to light and it automatically deletes its memory.

Instead of cards being swiped, shoppers insert them into a small chip-reading terminal. Consumers using chip cards need to type in a PIN number when making a purchase instead of signing their names.

It is more difficult to copy a chip card because the data and the transaction are encrypted, which keeps thieves from accessing accounts from these kinds of credit cards.

It is already in use in much of Europe and parts of Asia and Latin America.

GPS monitoring grows more popular

The global positioning system, or GPS is helping law enforcement keep track of criminals and a cheaper alternative to prison.

The GPS cost about $3400 a year compared with $30,000-40,000 for prison.

Prisons are beginning to let inmates out early, and tracking them because of overcrowding.

Superior Court Judge Michael Linfield warned law students that the GPS offers a "high tech illusion of safety".

Some states are using the devices in restraining orders, but warn the bracelet can't protect the victims.

GPS monitoring is already used in parts of Europe, but applied more narrowly, and it's growing fast in Latin America.

Implanted Micro-Chips in Humans The Future is Here!

Old people will be implanted with microchips to remind them to take their medicine, according to a vision of the future conjured up by Ofcom, the communications regulating quango.

It won't end at that. We already see cats and dogs verified as rabies-free by chips implanted beneath their skin.

For humans it might sound quite handy to be reminded by an implant to take one's library book back or to send a birthday card to a niece. But what if the taste of the medicine is less welcome and the computer chip keeps buzzing away until you've swallowed it all?

In one of the more nannyish Scandinavian states, there used to be a system making it impossible to buy alcohol unless one's income tax was paid up to date.

Such an arrangement would be child's play to a well-programmed implant.

So unless state ID schemes are resisted today, tomorrow you'll have had your chips.

.....................

Chipping and the Vision for Britain and the EU.

By 2015:-

1) Paper passports will be a thing of the past. We will all be forced to carry chips on cards and have eye and fingerprints for identity verification.

2) By 2020, all those living in, or visiting Europe will be chipped. If you do not have a chip, you will be fined, or denied access to public, or other services (eg., travel, healthcare, etc.);

3) By 2010, all babies in Europe will be chipped. Exceptions are for the offsprings of serving politicians, heads of state and similar high-ranking officials, or persons in the private sector.

4) By 2011, everyone living in Britain (with exceptions for police officers, politicians, heads of state and similar high ranking officials, or private persons) will be required to attend a police station monthly to protest their innocence from any crime. If such protestation is not satisfactory, there will be unlimited detention as the pleasure of the detainers until satisfaction occurs.

4) By 2009, in Britain, anyone will be able to be arrested and detained on suspicion of a crime. Detention without charge will be for an unlimited period and during that time, no access to lawyers, or representatives will be permitted.

Does not matter which political party is in force as all of the above will be dictated to us (as it is now) by the Illuminati European Union.

'Have nothing to hide, so I have nothing to fear?' - be afraid, be very afraid - the future is here!

RFID scanners coming to border this summer

Radio frequency sensors are set to go up at Rio Grande Valley border crossings this summer and fall, preparing the ports of entry for stricter entry requirements next year.

Known as RFID, or radio frequency identification, the sensors will be able to detect microchips embedded in new passports, border crossing cards and visas.

Those with older passports will not be able to drive or walk through so easily, though - only passports, border crossing cards and visas issued in the past couple of years are equipped with the microchips.

The microchips will allow U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents to pull up a traveler's information moments before a vehicle or pedestrian approaches an inspection booth.

In many cases, travelers won't need to remove the cards from their pockets or purses.

Customs officials say rolling out the sensors for mass use will help speed up traffic when new border crossing documentation requirements are implemented on June 1, 2009.

On that date, all U.S. citizens are set to be required to present a passport or border crossing card to re-enter the country.

The new law is part of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative that Congress passed in 2004 to protect U.S. borders. 

Travelers from states that use so-called enhanced driver's licenses - state-issued licenses that provide proof of identity and U.S. citizenship - will also be able to cross with minimal fuss.

McDonald's Tries Out New RFID-enabled Pay-By-Phone Coupons

First, it was the Starbucks-style store redesign and new focus on the coffee.

Now, the latest attempt by McDonald's to stay relevant is through a new e-coupon system that it is currently testing in Japan.

Called the Kasazu coupon it is a payment application that is downloaded into your phone and is then placed on top of an RFID reader by the user for instant payments and coupon redemption.

Many other companies are using this, such as Visa, and RFID is being used for everything from paying for parking meters to expediting border crossings in RFID-enabled passports.

According to the press release, McDonald's will begin using the tech in 175 stores and eventually expand it to the other 3,800 stores in that country.

There’s no word on when they expect to move this option to U.S. stores. Many phones in Japan include RFID tech, so it's a good place to set-up highly concentrated trials of a transaction technology that will likely go completely mainstream in the next few years

Biometric ID cards readied for Australian's

FINGERPRINT or iris scan-linked domestic flight passenger cards are needed to ensure people feel safer and security scares such as last month's evacuation of Brisbane's domestic airport are not repeated, a security organization says.

The cards were issued by airports and used biometric information to confirm a person's identity and whether they posed a security risk

People can provide a level of their personal details and access to their personal details like criminal record et cetera, and provide some biometric information, say a fingerprint or something like that,

and then be given a card ... to provide them with quicker access through airport security and through airports because they are a known quantity, as opposed to the general man or woman on the street

Human implants increasing new applications - wi-fi devices warn doctors of heart attacks

The Bluetooth wireless technology that allows people to use a hands-free earpiece while making a mobile telephone call could soon alert the emergency services when someone has a heart attack, Ofcom predicts.

The communications regulator said that sensors could be implanted into people at risk of heart attack or diabetic collapse that would allow doctors to monitor them remotely.

If the “in-body network” recorded that the person had suddenly collapsed, it would send an alert, via a nearby base station at their home, to a surgery or hospital.

However, Ofcom also gave warning in its report, Tomorrow’s Wireless World, that the impact of such technology on personal privacy would require more debate.

The technology, which is being tested now in Portsmouth, could also be used if a patient failed to take his or her medicines.

A pill dispenser would send an automatic reminder and, if the pills were not taken within a certain time, an alarm would sound and a message would be sent to the patient’s family or carers.

The Ofcom report also said that advances in GPS positioning and short-range wireless technologies could “revolutionise the way we conduct our journeys and safety levels on the roads”.

Intelligent transport systems being developed by car manufacturers allowed cars to communicate with each other and send alerts about sudden braking.

If a collision happened the car’s system could automatically call the emergency services.

The technology could also apply the brakes automatically if it was determined that two cars were getting too close to each other.

Wireless communication technology could also enable food items to carry microchips containing information on their contents.

This would allow, for example, nut allergy sufferers to be alerted if they inadvertently picked up an item containing nuts

EMV “Chip” trial begins

In Ontario Canada, Everlink Payment Services is starting to embed computer chips into credit cards for

a trial run. This trial is an important step that will lead to a gradual but steady migration to chip technology.

There are three primary benefits: mitigating fraud, enjoying a greater sense of confidence in the payment infrastructure and the additional functionality that this type of technology will provide.

From a network perspective, financial institution brands will also be more preserved since chip cards provide the opportunity to promote a more secure transaction environment.

The magnetic stripe will remain on the back of chip cards and chip-ready point of sale terminals and Automated Banking Machines (ABMs) will continue to recognize both chip and magnetic stripe cards.

Getting under your skin

UK telecom regulator Ofcom has come out with some innovative technologies in their recently published report. Some of these technologies could be deployed for use within the next ten years.

Wireless food content scanners could change the way we shop. It describes portable nutritional content scanners that could enable people to scan the content of food wrappers quickly and easily.

Using existing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, like those on the reverse of many bar codes, they would help identify items suitable for dietary requirements.

This technology already exists as a means of helping prevent shoplifting, and is becoming more widely deployed for identifying and tracking valuable items in transit.

Research is being done in three areas:

In-body networks : a “body area network” could be implanted inside a patient’s body to enable doctors to monitor their recovery remotely. The in-body network sensors monitor how a patient moves or picks up vital health signs, such as blood sugar levels, and sends this information wirelessly to make an alert via a home hub or portable monitor.

On-body monitors : these are small devices which people could wear to check vital health indicators such as pulse and blood pressure. The device would use Bluetooth or other wireless technologies to send signals from the body to portable monitors, such as a watch or mobile phone, or a home hub.

Smart drug dispensing : intelligent pill boxes or bottles could sense whether they have been opened each day at the appropriate time. If they have not been opened they will sound an alarm or send a message to the patient’s home hub or portable monitor, reminding them to take their medication.

BRITAIN TO INTRODUCE FACE SCANS AT AIRPORTS

The plan was revealed in the newspaper Friday. The paper says the trials were approved at a conference in London this week including international biometrics industry executives, top civil servants in border control, and police technology experts. It quotes a British Border Agency saying a machine can do a better job of scanning passports and exposing identity fraud than humans.

An official at the Border Agency, speaking to VOA on condition of anonymity, confirmed the Guardian story. A statement released to VOA quotes Immigration Minister Liam Byrne calling Britain's border security as among the toughest in the world.

He said that if the automatic gates work, they will be installed at all key airports.

But Phil Booth of No2ID, an organization campaigning against the introduction of ID cards in Britain, says the new technology is just another intrusion by the government.

‘The technologies that the government introduces that they say are about security are nothing of the sort,’ he said. ‘It's security theater. It's trying to bamboozle people with some new bits of technology and say it's about security when in fact it's about just gathering and sharing more of your information without your knowledge and consent.’

Booth says the technology, besides being more data gathering by the government on citizens, is not efficient.

‘Our understanding from industry, speaking with people who supply this sort of recognition systems is that they simply don't perform well enough in real world situations for them to recognize people in a queue,’ he added.

He also criticized the introduction at a time when some high profile cases concerning the loss of personal data by the government have come to light. Last November two computer disks containing personal and financial data of some 25 million Britons disappeared after a junior employee of the British Revenue and Customs Office sent them to an audit office using an internal mail service.

At least eight million Britons hold biometric passports. The computer chips in them hold the carriers' facial details

Enhanced Micro-Chip Tracking Technology May Propel Adoption of RFID

Mojix Inc. says its enhancements to a technology known as RFID -- for radio frequency identification -- sharply reduce the cost of setting up wireless networks that can cover entire warehouses, stores, distribution centers and yards where heavy equipment is stored.

Such networks can be used to quickly locate goods and track their movements without having to be close to a scanning device.

Networks with similar capabilities today typically require sophisticated RFID tags that cost anywhere from around $4 to more than $1,000 each.

Mojix says its hardware uses simpler tags that cost as little as 10 cents each.

Doctors Want Human Micro chipping to Start

Instead of doctors examining patients, one day such examinations may be replaced by tiny radio antennas implanted under the skin to act as remote sensors of humans' emotional, physiological state.

Scientists at the Hebrew University's applied physics department have discovered a method for remote sensing of people's physiological and emotional state.

This technique revealed that the sweat ducts - tubes that lead the sweat from the sweat gland to the surface of the skin - are shaped as tiny coils.

Similar helical structures with much larger dimensions have been used widely in as antennas in wireless communication systems.

This led the investigators to consider the possibility that sweat ducts could behave like tiny helical antennas as well.

Should grandpa be micro chipped?

Chipping Fido is considered an act of love. Chipping Grandpa, however, has been described as "Orwellian," "creepy" and even “satanic."

Regardless, human "tagging" was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2004 to make it easier to retrieve medical records.

An estimated 2,000 people worldwide have volunteered to have tiny RFID (radio frequency identification) chips embedded just below the tricep, including 111 dementia patients and their caregivers at Alzheimer's Community Care in West Palm Beach, Fla.

***WATCHMAN...TRICEP: the large muscle at the back of the upper arm that extends the forearm when contracted

Privacy advocates, who protested at the Florida care center, argued that Alzheimer’s patients can’t necessarily give informed consent. Implanting a chip, they say, is a violent, invasive act.

Critics also worry about potential long-term effects on health, even though they’ve been used

with pets for more than a decade.

***WATCHMAN... I have seen reports that link the CHIP to CANCER but they will NOT tell you about that...

But supporters say it's important to have instant and accurate access to medical records, especially for dementia patients.

In addition to the estimated 4.5 million Americans suffering from Alzheimer’s—a number that

is expected to quadruple by 2050—the tags could be used for high-risk patients suffering from diabetes, cancer, heart disease and autism.

"The most important thing the chips have done is give our families peace of mind," said Mary Barnes, CEO of Alzheimer’s Community Care, who reports no incidents so far.

The chip's maker, VeriChip Corp., says the technology uses safe and passive (there is no power source) devices that are activated only when read by a scanner. Like pet microchips, they do not have GPS capabilities and can’t track a person's whereabouts. And they don’t set off airport security alarms.

Pet owner Christine Collins, 56, of Bolingbrook micro chipped her five cats and called the tiny devices a "wonderful solution for locating both people and pets that are dear to you." The problem, she said, is that unlike collars and bracelets, the chips are not visible.

"Chips are great for providing details, but they are subtle tracking tools that only work if people are aware they may be implanted," said Collins, who worries about her own father, who was diagnosed with mild dementia, early stage Alzheimer’s and cardiac issues. "That's probably the most immediate issue with their use and efficacy, not Orwellian fears of privacy."

Hawaii first state to track produce with microchips for food safety; radio tags to track food

A technology used to track everything from cattle and bottles of Viagra to U.S. military weapons will soon be tested on an unlikely candidate for surveillance: tomatoes.

The Hawaii Department of Agriculture will rollout a three-year pilot project this month to track and trace tomatoes and other produce using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. The system uses microchips with paper-thin antennae stuck onto produce boxes that emit radio waves when scanned.

While the technology is already being used by a few supermarkets and farms across the nation, Hawaii would be the first state to test RFID from farm to market in hopes of improving food safety.

Robots seen doing work of 3.5 million in Japan

Robots could fill the jobs of 3.5 million people in graying Japan by 2025, a thinktank says, helping to avert worker shortages as the country's population shrinks.

Japan faces a 16 percent slide in the size of its workforce by 2030 while the number of elderly will mushroom, the government estimates, raising worries about who will do the work in a country unused to, and unwilling to contemplate, large-scale immigration.

The thinktank, the Machine Industry Memorial Foundation, says robots could help fill the gaps, ranging from microsized capsules that detect lesions to high-tech vacuum cleaners.

Rather than each robot replacing one person, the foundation said in a report that robots could make time for people to focus on more important things.

Japan could save 2.1 trillion yen ($21 billion) of elderly insurance payments in 2025 by using robots that monitor the health of older people, so they don't have to rely on human nursing care, the foundation said in its report

Big Brother RFID: Putting "Micro-Chip Tracking Tags" on Americans

UW team researches a future filled with RFID chips

Some University of Washington students, faculty and staff are being tracked as they move about the computer-science building, with details of where they've been, and with whom, stored in a database.

Professor Gaetano Borriello checks a computer to find graduate student Evan Welbourne's last location: on the fourth floor, outside room 452 at 10:38 a.m. Wednesday. He opens another screen to reveal the building's floor plan, and a blinking green dot representing Welbourne shows him walking down the hall.

If it seems a bit like Big Brother, that's the intention. The project is meant to explore both positive and negative aspects of a world saturated with technology that can monitor people and objects remotely.

"What we want to understand," Borriello said, "is what makes it useful, what makes it threatening and how to balance the two."

The Facebook tool which turns your mobile into a snoop

Husbands who are not where they are supposed to be could soon be in danger of being “sniffed” out by a mobile phone service that gives suspicious partners an electronic map showing the location of their spouse.

The Social Network Integrated Friend Finder (Sniff) is a new application, accessed via Facebook or mobile phone, which could bring an end to frantic “Where r u?” text messages.

The service, popular in Scandinavia, promises to provide users with a detailed map of their friends’ locations, any time and anywhere.

However, there are fears that Sniff could be abused by employers to remove the last vestiges of privacy from staff.

Employees who are enjoying a long lunch or a secret liaison instead of the business meeting in their diary could also find themselves “sniffed out”.

Mr Levin said: “If the employer is paying the phone bill and employees are aware they can be ‘sniffed’, at least everyone knows those are the rules.” Work surveillance is an increasing concern

Micro-chip tracking tags approved for Alzheimer's patients

Micro-chip tracking tags are being tried out for Alzheimer's patients, which could prolong the time sufferers are able to remain living in their own homes.

Scientists believe the devices, similar to those used to monitor offenders, could offer greater independence to the more than 700,000 people in Britain diagnosed with dementia.

Alzheimer's groups have backed the idea, believing the tags could offer greater independence for those with the condition and peace of mind for their care givers.

The devices allow patients to send a distress signal to care givers if they become confused or disorientated. Systems being tested include sending a signal to a mobile phone or interrupting television programs to register the alert. Relatives can use the satellite navigation technology to identify a location and find their loved one.

Tracking technology in the corridors of learning

Walk around the University of Washington's computer science building and eventually you will cross paths with a researcher whose every movement is tracked by computer.

Two hundred RFID antennas have been fitted into the ceilings, and individuals taking part in the trial wear RFID tags round their necks and on their possessions.

Their location is followed in real time, but unlike many Orwellian deployments of such technology - where hidden overseers know what we're all doing, but individuals don't - each participant in the RFID Ecosystem can also access the data.

"Our goal is to ask what benefits can we get out of this technology and how can we protect people's privacy at the same time," says Magda Balazinska, the project leader and assistant professor of computer science and engineering at UW.

"We want to get a handle on the privacy issues that will crop up if these systems become a reality." Balazinska and a dozen other members of the team have been wearing RFID tags for the past year.

The sensor data is collected in a central database and then passed on to applications such as Google Calendar and a Twitter widget called RFIDder which sends alerts to friends letting them know if they're in a meeting or have sat down to lunch.

It also automatically logs every "encounter" event between participants

Preparing the way for the Mark

Introducing Digital Tattoo Interface

Jim Mielke's wireless blood-fueled display is a true merging of technology and body art.

At the recent Greener Gadgets Design Competition, the engineer demonstrated a subcutaneously implanted touch-screen that operates as a cell phone display, with the potential for 3G video calls that are visible just underneath the skin.

The basis of the 2x4-inch "Digital Tattoo Interface" is a Bluetooth device made of thin, flexible silicon and silicone.

It´s inserted through a small incision as a tightly rolled tube, and then it unfurls beneath the skin to align between skin and muscle.

Through the same incision, two small tubes on the device are attached to an artery and a vein to allow the blood to flow to a coin-sized blood fuel cell that converts glucose and oxygen to electricity.

After blood flows in from the artery to the fuel cell, it flows out again through the vein.

On both the top and bottom surfaces of the display is a matching matrix of field-producing pixels.

The top surface also enables touch-screen control through the skin.

Instead of ink, the display uses tiny microscopic spheres, somewhat similar to tattoo ink

Biosensors & Implantable Chips: The Future Of Your Body

This “medical telesensor” chip on a fingertip can measure and transmit body temperature.

An array of chips attached to your body may provide additional information on blood pressure, oxygen level, pulse rate , breathing ( chest expansion )

A chip implanted in the body will function as a constant on board doctor, detecting diseases early and delivering drugs straight into the blood stream.

Sound like an Orwellian/Asimov hybrid to be seen in an episode of a Jestonic future Space age Cartoon ? Think again .

Biosensors could make this scenario a reality before your toddler goes to college.

Bacteria can be detected using “biosensors.”

A biosensor is a device that detects, records, and transmits information regarding a physiological change or the presence of various chemical or biological materials in the environment.

More technically a Biosensor will be defined as a “ Compact analytical device incorporating a biological or biologically –derived sensing element either integrated within or intimately associated with a physicochemical transducer.”

The usual aim of a biosensor is to produce either discrete or continuous digital electronic signal which are proportional to signal analyte or a related group of analytes.

Biosensors, which come in a large variety of sizes and shapes, are used to monitor changes in environmental conditions. They can detect and measure concentrations of specific bacteria or hazardous chemicals; they can measure acidity levels (pH).

Biosensors are already thriving in the medical field. From 1990’s biosensors have been used as immunosensors to destroy or weaken invading bacteria and neutralize organic poisons in the human body.

External biosensors are used in emergency room as a point-of- care diagnostic units - such as I-Stat’s ( Manufacturing company ) “ LABS –on a CHIP “ , which can reveal almost immediately whether a patient is in cardiac arrest by testing blood chemistry .

Other companies are developing implantable biosensors that track blood glucose levels and deliver insulin. Microchip ( company ) is testing a chip implant that offers long term , time-controlled drug delivery .

Their next step is a manually wirelessly controlled biosensors that detects and treats an acute condition and then a Biosensor that will approximate an artificial organ.

It will sense a condition and respond automatically without user intervention.

EU Drafts RFID Micro-Chip Tracking Guidelines

The European Commission has sketched out guidelines designed to help get RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies up and running in the European Union, but stopped short of proposing formal legislation in the area.

The Commission said Thursday that it has drawn up a draft text that aims to help the makers of RFID technology, as well as potential users, introduce the technology without harming privacy rights.

The Commission recommends that producers of RFID micro-chips conduct a privacy assessment before marketing their wares, while industries that plan to use the chips should sign up to a code of conduct outlining how the chips should be used.

Industries using RFID technology should agree on a symbol to attach to the goods that carry the chips to alert customers to their presence, the Commission proposed.

It also **suggests** that the chips should deactivate automatically at the point of purchase.

RFID chips used with perishable items such as milk could alert consumers if products go bad, but such a service should be optional, said Commission spokesman Martin Selmayr.

"You should be able to decide whether to allow your milk carton to communicate with your fridge, for example," he said at a news conference.

work in conjunction with databases to register livestock information and quickly isolate any problem discovered in an animal from birth through slaughter and distribution, including bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).

Digital Angel's President and Chief Executive Officer, Joseph J. Grillo, said, "Digital Angel, which has been in the livestock tagging business for more than 60 years, provides a thorough technology solution to address food safety concerns with cattle and other livestock.

Micro-Chips powering infrared LED's in Clothing IDs Friends for Military

When Taliban forces attacked a police checkpoint in central Afghanistan under dark of night in late 2006, special-operations Master Sgt. Andrew Martin called in air support and then slapped a

high-tech cloth-like device on his helmet for protection.

Fresh from labs at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the device transmitted light from a powerful light-emitting diode, or LED, that pulsed through a fiber optic bundle, giving off infrared signals visible to pilots wearing night-vision goggles.

"The pilots were able to very quickly pick it up," recalled Martin, who has since retired from the Air Force. "What didn't happen was additional questions from the pilots asking me my location."

The new technology _ called Target Recognition Operator Notification system _ was designed to easily identify friendly forces and avoid casualties from friendly fire.

Every child in school numbered for life

All 14-year-old children in England will have their personal details and exam results placed on an electronic database for life under a plan to be announced tomorrow.

Colleges and prospective employers will be able to access students’ records online to check on their qualifications.

Under the terms of the scheme all children will keep their individual number throughout their adult lives, The Times has learnt.

The database will include details of exclusions and expulsions. Officials said last night that the introduction of the unique learner number (ULN) was not a step towards a national identity card.

But it will be seen as the latest step in the Government’s broader efforts to computerize personal records.

Last night teachers’ leaders, parents’ organizations, opposition MPs and human rights campaigners questioned whether this Big Brother approach was necessary and said that it could compromise the personal security of millions of teenagers

UK Micro-chip tracking tags trial for luggage at airports

Micro-chip tracking Radio tags to prevent luggage going missing at airports are to be tested at Heathrow.

A six-month trial involving 300,000 bags is being run by Emirates and BAA, the airport's owners.

Luggage on flights between Heathrow, Dubai and Hong Kong will be tagged, using a technology known as radio frequency identification.

The initiative will be watched closely by the International Air Transport Association, the industry's governing body.

Lost baggage is one of the biggest problems facing airline passengers.

According to the Association of European Airlines, an average of 16.6 bags per thousand passengers fail to reach their destination at the same time as their owners - roughly three bags a flight.

The radio tracking chips will be fitted on luggage tags alongside the conventional bar codes.

Your Microchipped Future Not So Sci-Fi

Technology already exists that could lead to the tracking of purchases and people.

Here's a vision of the not-so-distant future:

• Microchips with antennas will be embedded in virtually everything you buy, wear, drive and read, allowing retailers and law enforcement to track consumer items — and, by extension, consumers — wherever they go, from a distance.

• A seamless, global network of electronic "sniffers" will scan radio tags in myriad public settings, identifying people and their tastes instantly so that customized ads, "live spam," may be beamed at them.

• In "Smart Homes," sensors built into walls, floors and appliances will inventory possessions, record eating habits, monitor medicine cabinets — all the while reporting data to marketers eager for a peek into the occupants' private lives.

Smart Micro-chip tracking tags hail the web of things

Micro-chip Tags are helping monitor health and safety on building sites

The humble micro-chip tracking tag is growing up.

So say researchers and developers who are finding ways to make the tiny devices much more than just a hi-tech price tag that can help shops and supermarkets track cans of beans from warehouse to store shelf.

"It all started with simple radio tags and asset tracking," said Gerd Kortuem, "but that really only gives you an identifier for an object."

Now, said Dr Kortuem, tiny Radio Frequency ID (RFID) tags are getting smarter and more communicative as bigger memory, basic processing power and wireless technologies are added to them.

"We are trying to embed a little more intelligence beyond location by adding sensors and by networking these objects together," he said.

Safe and sound

Dr Kortuem and colleagues are working on a project that combines smart tags and personal identifiers to keep an eye on people working on construction sites using heavy machine tools.

"It's to keep track of how long they are used, to figure out vibrations generated by these tools," he said. "It's for health and safety. We create personalized health and safety records for every worker."

The future of the internet is an internet of connected objects Jean-Francois Kitten

"The current way of generating this data is after the fact and no-one really cares about it," he said. "There is legislation and companies need to generate the data, they need to prove that they comply with the legislation."

Workers will also be able to look at their own health records to get a sense of their exposure to potentially harmful working environments and raise awareness of the dangers.

For instance, prolonged exposure to vibrations from drills and other tools can lead to a condition called "vibration white finger" that can leave extremities numb and painful.

Many hardware makers, such as router maker Cisco, are also starting to put smarter tags on devices so they can keep a record of their working life and can call for help if they are about to fail or are in need of servicing.

Smarter homes

In the home too some gadgets are starting to use RFID tags to become smarter and help their owners cope with the pace of modern life.

The latest version of the Nabaztag wi-fi rabbit gadget has been fitted with a sensor that can interrogate the radio tags.

The rabbit can also read out e-mails, monitor RSS feeds and the weather for its owners. Rival devices such as the Chumby and Tux droid perform similar functions.

Nabaztag rabbit reading a book, Violet

The rabbit can recognize lots of different objects

Violet, the creators of the rabbit have signed a deal with Gallimard Jeunesse to put RFID tags on books produced by the French publisher.

Jean-Francois Kitten, a spokesman for Violet, said at first only five titles, some stories and some educational, would have tags but more were expected soon.

When a tagged book is waved under the Nabaztag's nose it pulls according of a story being read from the net and begins to play it. Moving the rabbit's ears lets listeners skip forward or back in the text.

The rabbit also remembers where it reached in the book so, in the case of a story, it can pick up at the right place in the action when listeners want to continue.

"In the average house you have about 10,000 different objects and right now you have maybe three objects connected to the net - phone, computer and perhaps a rabbit," he said.

"But we think that more and more objects are going to be connected," said Mr Kitten.

Mr Kitten said putting tags on books had huge potential. For instance, he said, a tagged book could become a key to future content if a novel was made in to a film or game.

When the rabbit read the tag its owner would get the chance to watch the movie online or download a game.

"It's a pedagogical way to explain what you can do with RFID and interactive objects," he said.

Violet also had plans to sell RFID stamps, or ztamps, that can be stuck on any object which can then be associated with almost any net content. When they go on sale three ztamps will cost £1 (1.34 euros).

Nabaztag owners will be able to customize what happens when a tagged object is waved under the nose of their wi-fi rabbit.

"The future of the internet is an internet of connected objects," he said.

Resistance Is Futile: You Will Be Micro chipped

***WATCHMAN... NOW "I" DID NOT SAY THAT the report did...

Parents worry about their little ones being abducted. Later they worry about their not-quite-so-little ones driving too fast and then stopping to hang with the wrong crowd. "Sandwich" generation parents also get to worry about elderly parents wandering off or injuring themselves.

Microchips have been implanted in more than one million pets, and now humans may be next. While it may smack of Big Brother, people may soon be scanned like bread at the supermarket.

Teens, too, can be "watched" using GPS technology as parents are alerted when junior exceeds the speed limit and/or goes to an unapproved location.

There are infant protection systems - wearable RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags for mom and baby - designed to prevent infant abductions and inadvertent child mismatching.

Parents can also find out everything their kids say and do online. One can track them by their cell phones, and read their text messages.

At least five companies - Disney Mobile, Guardian Angel Technology, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and Wherify Wireless - have built GPS tracking into cell phones.

With Verizon's Chaperone, for example, the parent can determine the location of the child's cell phone from the Internet or from his or her own cell phone.

The child's location information will be displayed as a nearby address and on a detailed map.

Chaperone also allows the parent to establish geographic boundaries around such locations as home or baseball practice.

When the child arrives near or leaves the vicinity of a predetermined location, the parent can be notified via a TXT message.

In 2004 the FDA approved an implantable chip for use in medical applications. The microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted below the skin. The chip carries medical records that can be read by a scanner ' information such as blood groups, conditions, allergies, and details of medications.

The same company that offers this human-implantable RFID microchip (Delray Beach, Fla.-based VeriChip) also offers wander-prevention technology for long-term care facilities.

And Big Brother (or Big Mother) can now occupy the back seat of the family vehicle, at least digitally.

Real-time GPS vehicle tracking allows parents to monitor their teen's driving habits. You can determine the vehicle's speed and location by viewing the car on a map from any computer with Internet access.

The date, time, address, speed and direction are displayed. If you can't get to a computer, the phone can also provide the teen's last updated location and, if moving, vehicle speed.

If your little darling has a different take on what occurred in the past, historical driving information can be saved.

You can even remotely lock and unlock the car door from your computer, and you can disable the ignition.

How humiliating would it be to your teen driver if you flashed the lights or blew the horn to get his or her attention? It simply requires the push of a key on your computer. (There's no reason this couldn't work on a spouse as well.)

Another feature auto-notifies when your teen driver has exceeded a predetermined speed limit or drives to a restricted address.

How many of us would have had our privileges yanked if these technologies had available when we were kids? I know my mom would have used all of these tactics and more - if she could have figured out the directions.

Baltimore-based nonprofit partners in bringing implantable microchips mainstream

Implanting human beings with microchips that contain their identification and medical records is a controversial subject.

But by the end of the year, as many as 500 kidney dialysis patients in Maryland will be equipped with microchips from Florida firm VeriChip Corp., and local hospitals will be carrying the technology to read the chips.

The project is a partnership between VeriChip and the Independent Dialysis Foundation Inc., a Baltimore-based nonprofit that operates eight dialysis centers in the state.

VeriChip has offered to implant its VeriMed microchip, the size of a grain of rice, at no cost in all the foundation's roughly 500 patients.

The company also hopes to provide the readers at no cost to about 25 hospital emergency departments in the state.

The history of GETTING CHIPPED

1] As far back as 1973, Senior Scholastics introduced school age children to the concept of buying and selling using numbers inserted in their forehead.

2] In the 1974 article "The Specter of Eugenics," Charles Frankel pointed out Linus Pauling's (Nobel Prize winner) suggestions that a mark be tattooed on the foot or forehead of every young person. Pauling envisioned a mark denoting genotype.

3] In 1980, U.S. News and World Report continued the warning, pointing out that the Federal Government was contemplating "National Identity Cards," without which nobody could work or conduct business.

4] The Denver Post Sun followed up in 1981, claiming that chip implants could someday replace I.D. cards. The June 21, 1981 story read in part, "The chip is placed in a needle which is affixed to a simple syringe containing an anti-bacterial solution. The needle is capped and ready to forever identify something--or somebody."

5] The May 7, 1996 Chicago Tribune questioned the technology, wondering aloud if we could trust Big Brother under our skin?

6] Then in 1997 applications for patents of subcutaneous implant devices for "a person or an animal" were applied for.

7] On April 27, 1998, Time Magazine ran the story, The Big Bank Theory And What It Says About The Future OF Money, in which they opined "Your daughter can store the money any way she wants--on her laptop, on a debit card, even (in the not too distant future) on a chip implanted under her skin."

8] In August 1998 the BBC covered the first known human microchip implantation.

9] That same month the Sunday Portland Oregonian warned that proposed medical identifiers might erode privacy rights by tracking individuals through alphanumeric health identifier technologies. The startling Oregonian feature depicted humans with barcodes in their foreheads.

10] A couple of years back millions of Today Show viewers watched as the decade of prophetic warnings materialized when an American family got "chipped" with ADS's VeriChip™ live from a doctor's office in Boca Raton.

1] Lastly in January of 2008 a plan was revealed to begin under the skin chipping of USA soldiers

Since then, it's been business as usual with the chipping mantra.

Hospitals to begin tagging babies with electronic tracking Micro-chips

Privacy advocates protest as half of Ohio birthing centers turn to tracking technology

Over half the birthing facilities in Ohio are being equipped with an RFID infant protection system placed on infants at birth to prevent them from being abducted from the hospital or from being given to the wrong mother.

"Standard protocol in the hospitals using the VeriChip system is that the baby receives an RFID anklet at birth and the mother receives a matching wristband," VeriChip spokeswoman Allison Tomek said. "The mothers are not asked."

***WATCHMAN... BUT CHIPPING IS A CHOICE RIGHT? WRONG???...

VeriChip Corp., a publicly listed company headquartered in Delray Beach, Fla., is marketing though its wholly-owned subsidiary, Xmark, a HUGS brand tag-and-bracelet infant security system.

The RFID tag is attached to an infant at birth by an ankle bracelet that is detected by monitors positioned throughout the hospital.

Critics charge the VeriChip system is an intrusive technology solution to a problem that is rare.

The HUGS system can detect if the RFID tag is lifted from the baby's skin, if the ankle strap broken or if the baby's RFID tag and the mother's don't match.

If a newborn is removed from the ward without authorization or a baby is placed with the wrong mother, the system triggers an alarm that can cause hospital entrances and exits to lock shut.

Ironically, relying on RFID technology could end up making a rare occurrence more likely," Albrecht said. "Once hospital staffers rely on computer systems to track the human inventory in their care, they become lss vigilant.

HUGS system RFID anklets and bracelets are not equipped with GPS technology.

NEW technology that electronically tags dementia sufferers with micro-chips to help find them when they get lost has the support of some welfare groups.

The technology being tested in the UK tags dementia sufferers and tracks them by satellite to help find them when they wander off.

"The technology could offer great benefits for people with dementia and their careers, but we have to be careful that it's never used as an alternative for high-quality care or substitute for proper resourcing by government," the group's executive director Jon Bisset said.

However, Pauline Wright from the NSW Council for Civil Liberties dismissed electronic tagging as a "gimmicky alternative to expensive, high-quality dementia care".

Plans for national ID card raise concerns

NEW YORK STATE ALBANY - After abandoning his controversial driver's license plan for illegal immigrants this fall, Governor Eliot Spitzer got behind the federal government's REAL ID card.

Now, despite what he said in October, the governor says he is taking time to review the details of the REAL ID program.

"In this era, there is no question that the federal government and individual states must take steps to improve the safety and security of our transportation system. Now that the Department of Homeland Security has released its REAL ID regulations we will take the time necessary to carefully review the details. This is an issue that merits cautious study and dialogue," Spitzer said in a statement.

Agencies responsible for issuing the card are concerned. New York has so far done nothing to get ready for the REAL ID so Governor Spitzer has until February to ask the U.S. Government for more time to implement it.

Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola says he needs to know sooner rather than later when the cards will take effect.

"The longer he waits the shorter the window the window keeps closing in and people have to get in the office for processing," said Merola.

The REAL ID doesn't just mean more work for agencies that distribute identification. To obtain one, you'll need a combination of a birth certificate, military ID, social security card and/or visa. Despite the increased red tape, Merola welcomes the card for safety's sake.

"Since September 11th, 2001 we've been talking about the security of the document and that's what we look forward to," he said.

The REAL ID is intended to keep dangerous people off airplanes. The men responsible for the September 11th hijackings had valid driver's licenses. But there's fear that the new, stringent requirements will disenfranchise groups of Americans.

"There are many populations in this country that have difficulty obtaining the original documents, their birth certificates, marriage certificates and so on. It just isn't that easy to get the documents," said Melanie Trimble of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

Technology to support the REAL ID is already being tested across the country. That, too, worries Trimble who argues the REAL ID infringes on our fundamental right to privacy.

"This is not the American way. We should not have a piece of paper or an electronic trace for every person in this country," she said.

If Governor Spitzer doesn't apply for the extension, New Yorkers won't be able to board a plane with their current licenses in May.

If you were born before December 1, 1964, you don't have to worry about the new ID's just yet.

Roll out will be staggered, depending on your age.

Doctor alleges plans underway to "Microchip" Newborns in U.S. and Europe

Regarding plans to microchip newborns, Dr. Kilde said the U.S. has been moving in this direction "in secrecy."

Are you prepared to live in a world in which every newborn baby is micro-chipped?

And finally are you ready to have your every move tracked, recorded and placed in Big Brother's data bank?

Guinea pigs in secret experiments have included prisoners, soldiers, mental patients, handicapped children, deaf and blind people, homosexuals, single women, the elderly, school children, and any group of people considered "marginal" by the elite experimenters.

With the help of satellites, the implanted person can be tracked anywhere on the globe.

Such a technique was among a number tested in the Iraq war.

The 20-billion-bit/second supercomputers at the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) could now "see and hear" what soldiers experience in the battlefield with a remote monitoring system (RMS).

"When a 5-micromillimeter microchip (the diameter of a strand of hair is 50 micro millimeters) is placed into optical nerve of the eye,", Dr. Kilde indicates "it draws neuro-impulses from the brain that embody the experiences, smells, sights, and voice of the implanted person.

Once transferred and stored in a computer, these neuro-impulses can be projected back to the person's brain via the microchip to be re-experienced.

Using a RMS, a land-based computer operator can send electromagnetic messages (encoded as signals) to the nervous system, affecting the target's performance.

With RMS, healthy persons can be induced to see hallucinations and to hear voices in their heads.

Every thought, reaction, hearing, and visual observation causes a certain neurological potential, spikes, and patterns in the brain and its electromagnetic fields, which can now be decoded into thoughts, pictures, and voices, Dr. Kilde adds.

Electromagnetic stimulation can therefore change a person's brainwaves and affect muscular activity, causing painful muscular cramps experienced as torture."

ACTS 17:30,31 (paraphrased) "There was a time of ignorance God overlooked, BUT now He commands all men everywhere to REPENT, because of the APPOINTED DAY when He will JUDGE the WORLD"

A Starting Point: Prisoners 'To Be Chipped Like Dogs' [Military Next, Then Children & Elderly, Finally Everybody]

Hi-tech 'satellite' tagging planned in order to create more space in jails Civil rights groups and probation officers furious at 'degrading' scheme that would create more space in British jails.

Amid concerns about the security of existing tagging systems and prison overcrowding, the Ministry of Justice is investigating the use of satellite and radio-wave technology to monitor criminals.

But, instead of being contained in bracelets worn around the ankle, the tiny chips would be surgically inserted under the skin of offenders in the community, to help enforce home curfews.

The radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, as long as two grains of rice, are able to carry scanable personal information about individuals, including their identities, address and offending record.

The tags, labeled "spychips" by privacy campaigners, are already used around the world to keep track of dogs, cats, cattle and airport luggage, but there is no record of the technology being used to monitor offenders in the community.

The tags, injected into the back of the arm with a hypodermic needle, consist of a toughened glass capsule holding a computer chip, a copper antenna and a "capacitor" that transmits data stored on the chip when prompted by an electromagnetic reader.

The US market leader VeriChip Corp, whose parent company has been selling radio tags for animals for more than a decade, has sold 7,000 RFID microchips worldwide, of which about 2,000 have been implanted in humans.

The company claims its VeriChips are used in more than 5,000 installations, crossing healthcare, security, government and industrial markets, but they have also been used to verify VIP membership in nightclubs, automatically gaining the carrier entry – and deducting the price of their drinks from a pre-paid account.

The possible value of the technology to the UK's justice system was first highlighted 18 months ago, when Acpo's Mr Jones suggested the chips could be implanted into sex offenders. The implants would be tracked by satellite, enabling authorities to set up "zones", including schools, playgrounds and former victims' homes, from which individuals would be barred.

"If we are prepared to track cars, why don't we track people?" Mr Jones said. "You could put surgical chips into those of the most dangerous sex offenders who are willing to be controlled."

The internal tags also have a use in maintaining order within prisons.

In the United States, they are used to track the movement of gang members within jails.

The rest of us could be next.....

Professionals in the criminal justice system maintain that the present system is 95 per cent effective.

Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology is unproven.

The technology is actually more invasive, and carries more information about the host.

The devices have been dubbed "spychips" by critics who warn that they would transmit data about the movements of other people without their knowledge.

Consumer privacy expert Liz McIntyre said a colleague had already proved he could "clone" a chip. "He can bump into a chipped person and siphon the chip's unique signal in a matter of seconds," she said.

One company plans deeper implants that could vibrate, electroshock the implantee, broadcast a message, or serve as a microphone to transmit conversations.

"Some folks might foolishly discount all of these downsides and futuristic nightmares since the tagging is proposed for criminals like rapists and murderers," Ms McIntyre said. "The rest of us could be next."

Earlier this year ADS provided testimony that safeguards have been implemented to ensure privacy in connection with implantable microchips. ADS received patent rights to Digital Angel (TM) technology on December 10, 1999.

What set Digital Angel apart from the competition was the innovative design--a miniature digital transceiver specifically created for human implantation.

According to information released last year the implantable transceiver "sends and receives data and can be continuously tracked by GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) technology.

***WATCHMAN... I told you years ago that when they could TRACK the RFID CHIP with GPS it would most likely be the choice of the ANTI-CHRIST WORLD BEAST SYSTEM to contain the MARK or 666...

The transceiver's power supply and actuation system are unlike anything ever created. When implanted within a body, the device is powered electromechanically through the movement of muscles, and it can be activated either by the 'wearer' or by the monitoring facility.

An Information Technology report verified plans to study implantable chips as a method of tracking terrorists. 

After first pulling back from the implantable version of its Digital Angel, ADS foresees a unique use of its product under the new name VeriChip in the wake of terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. "We've changed out thinking since September 11," a company spokesman said, "Now there's more of a need to monitor evil activities."

ADS also claims the VeriChip (Digital Angel) has a variety of otheruses, such as "providing a tamper-proof means of identification for enhanced e-business security, animal tracking, locating lost or missing individuals, tracking the location of valuable property and monitoring nthe medical conditions of at-risk patients."

Following the Internet World Wireless award for "Best of Show: Client Services," Mercedes Walton, President and CEO of Applied Digital Solutions, said: We have always had high expectations for the Digital Angel products.

This award is truly a validation of our faith in Digital Angel's ability to capture the imagination of the public. Consumer anticipation has translated into accelerated interest from potential partners and allies. We are eager to bring Digital Angel to the marketplace in a very timely manner...."

Other manufacturers of sub-skin implants have quietly field-tested similar devices over the past few years. The London Times reported that, "Film stars and the children of millionaires are among 45 people, including several Britons, who have been fitted with the chips (called the Sky Eye) in secret tests."

Due to civil liberty and privacy issues, the ACLU announced opposition to mandatory microchip implantation when applied to humans. The ACLU is certain to be a strange bedfellow of conservatives concerning this issue.

THE FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY?

Many people believe that, before long, an antichrist system will appear.

It will be a New World Order, under which national boundaries dissolve, and ethnic groups, ideologies, religions, and economics from around the world will orchestrate a single and dominant sovereignty.

The system will supposedly be free of religious and political extremes, and membership will tolerate the philosophical and cultural differences of its constituents. Except for minor nonconformities, war, terrorism, and hunger will be a thing of the past.

According to popular Biblical interpretation, a single personality will surface at the head of this utopian administration. He will appear as a man of distinguished character, but will ultimately become "a king of fierce countenance" (Dan. 8:23).

With imperious decree this Antichrist will facilitate the one-world government, universal religion, and globally monitored socialism. Those who refuse his New World Order will inevitably be imprisoned or destroyed, until at last he exalts himself "above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God" (2 Thess. 2:4).

The Antichrist's widespread power will be derived at the expense of individual human liberties. He will force "all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had

the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six [666]" (Rev. 13:16-18).

For many years the idea that humans would somehow succumb to little more than branded cattle, and that rugged individualism would thereafter be sacrificed for an anesthetized universal harmony, was repudiated by America’s greatest minds.

Then, in the 1970’s, things began to change. Following a call by Nelson Rockefeller for the creation of a "New World Order," presidential candidate Jimmy Carter campaigned, saying, "We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics."

During the 1980's, President George Bush continued the one-world dirge, announcing over national television that "a New World Order" had arrived.

Following the initial broadcast, President Bush addressed the Congress, saying, “What is at stake is more than one small country [Kuwait], it is a big idea--a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our children’s future!”

Ever since the President's astonishing newscast, a parade of political and religious leaders have discharged a profusion of rhetoric aimed at implementing the goals of a New World Order.

Developers of biometric implant chips employ similar language in announcing compatible global technologies, and many Americans consider electronically marking humans or implanting a series of digital equations beneath the skin to be the natural progress of these advancing and necessary technologies.

IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE

Some people believe implantable microchips will become the Biblical Mark of the Beast. These claim that acts of terrorism such as the ones in New York and Washington, encourage micro chipping humans for identification purposes.

Yet even before the New York and Pentagon tragedies, a push was being made to brand and monitor humanity.

Consider the following:

1] As far back as 1973, Senior Scholastics introduced school age children to the concept of buying and selling using numbers inserted in their forehead.

In the September 20, 1973 feature "Who Is Watching You?" the secular high school journal speculated: "All buying and selling in the program will be done by computer.

No currency, no change, no checks.

In the program, people would receive a number that had been assigned them tattooed in their wrist or forehead.

The number is put on by laser beam and cannot be felt.

The number in the body is not seen with the naked eye and is as permanent as your fingerprints.

All items of consumer goods will be marked with a computer mark.

The computer outlet in the store which picks up the number on the items at the checkstand

will also pick up the number in the person's body and automatically total the price and deduct the amount from the person's 'Special Drawing Rights' account."

2] In the 1974 article "The Specter of Eugenics," Charles Frankel pointed out Linus Pauling's (Nobel Prize winner) suggestions that a mark be tattooed on the foot or forehead of every young person. Pauling envisioned a mark denoting genotype.

3] In 1980, U.S. News and World Report continued the warning, pointing out that the Federal Government was contemplating "National Identity Cards," without which nobody could work or conduct business.

4] The Denver Post Sun followed up in 1981, claiming that chip implants could someday replace I.D. cards. The June 21, 1981 story read in part, "The chip is placed in a needle which is affixed to a simple syringe containing an anti-bacterial solution. The needle is capped and ready to forever identify something--or somebody."

5] The May 7, 1996 Chicago Tribune questioned the technology, wondering aloud if we could trust Big Brother under our skin?

6] Then in 1997 applications for patents of subcutaneous implant devices for "a person or an animal" were applied for.

7] On April 27, 1998, Time Magazine ran the story, The Big Bank Theory And What It Says About The Future OF Money, in which they opined "Your daughter can store the money any way she wants--on her laptop, on a debit card, even (in the not too distant future) on a chip implanted under her skin."

8] In August 1998 the BBC covered the first known human microchip implantation.

9] That same month the Sunday Portland Oregonian warned that proposed medical identifiers might erode privacy rights by tracking individuals through alphanumeric health identifier technologies. The startling Oregonian feature depicted humans with barcodes in their foreheads.

10] A couple of years back millions of Today Show viewers watched as the decade of prophetic warnings materialized when an American family got "chipped" with ADS's VeriChip™ live from a doctor's office in Boca Raton.

1] Lastly in January of 2008 a plan was revealed to begin under the skin chipping of USA soldiers

Since then, it's been business as usual with the chipping mantra.

Meanwhile, terrorism has many people in the mood to sacrifice their liberties... a National ID Bill Masquerading As Immigration Reform is moving through the US Congress... and Digital Angel has expanded its mass production factory in Palm Beach, Florida.

WILL DIGITAL "MARKS" SOON BE MANDATORY?

Makers of implantable microchips claim the procedure will continue to be voluntary. But a report written by Elaine M. Ramish for the Franklin Pierce Law Center says: "A [mandatory] national identification system via microchip implants could be achieved in two stages...

Upon introduction as a voluntary system, the microchip implantation will appear to be palatable.

After there is a familiarity with the procedure and a knowledge of its benefits, implantation would be mandatory."

George Getz, the communications director for the Libertarian Party agrees, saying: “After all, the government has never forced anyone to have a driver license, [but] try getting along without one, when everyone from your local banker to the car rental man to the hotel operator to the grocery store requires one in order for you to take advantage of their services, that amounts to a de facto mandate.

If the government can force you to surrender your fingerprints to get a drivers license, why can't it force you to get a computer chip implant?”

People like Mr. Getz are correct. Conservatives and liberals alike need to contact state and federal representatives and demand laws preserving individual rights before Digital Angel and similar forces lead humanity down a high-tech path of no return.

Last but not least, note what the prophet said.

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark [charagma; (Greek charax) meaning to stake into or "stick into"] in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark…" -- Rev. 13:16-17a

UK considers RFID tags for prisoners

The UK government is considering implanting prisoners with RFID tags containing data on identity, address and criminal record.

The RFID tags, about the size of two grains of rice, would be injected under the skin and could be scanned by a reader.

UConn Developing Implantable Chip For Soldiers

By 2014 the Army may issue more than combat gear to deploying soldiers.

University of Connecticut researchers are developing an implantable chip that would be injected under soldiers' skin to help monitor vital health information while they are out in the field.

“We're taking components from traditional biology and nanotechnology and trying to marry them.”

***WATCHMAN... Here is an instance possibly leading toward a 666 use for NANOTECHNOLOGY...

The silicone nanosensor will be small enough to pass through the tip of a standard hypodermic needle, which will be used to implant the device in the wrist.

The soldier will wear a watch-like transmitter that will receive readings of the soldier's glucose and lactose levels.

***WATCHMAN... WOW! The wrist this is getting close to fulfilling Revelation 13:16-18 concerning the MARK of the Beast being placed in the RIGHT HAND

RFID poised for the big time in 2008

Next year will witness the spread of RFID applications into familiar, everyday settings, while consumer electronics, wireless technologies and security requirements will continue to benefit from the integration of RFID.

These are just some of the predictions from AIM Global, the worldwide industry trade association and self-proclaimed authority on automatic identification and mobility solutions.

Practical RFID applications will find their way into familiar settings, including sporting events, the latest toys and food safety, according to the trade association.

Next year's Beijing Olympics will see RFID applications being used to track marathon runners to ensure race time accuracy, watched by sports fans holding tickets authenticated by the same technology.

This year's highly publicized recalls of contaminated foods and unsafe toys will push firms to use RFID to immediately track the origins of compromised items, halting the production of potentially harmful goods.

2008 will also witness the increasing integration of RFID into mobile devices and consumer electronics, providing consumers and business users with new and more convenient services.

This technological marriage will result in multi-functional mobile devices that allow users to manage voice calls, email, text messages, multimedia, location-based information, personal finance accounts and many other aspects of everyday lives.

According to AIM Global, the convergence of RFID and other wireless technologies is now inevitable.
