NFC chip hand implant

Game developer Zoe Quinn recently implanted an NFC chip in the space between her thumb and index finger. Appropriately enough, she's since programmed the chip to send a link to her Humble Bundle page for Deus Ex, a popular shooter game about cyborgs. So, if you bump into her, you can tap your phone against the base of her thumb and get a free video game about human/robot hybrids. Here's a video of the operation, which starts at about the four-minute mark. It's not for the squeamish, and it certainly doesn't help that she had to inject it herself with a giant needle.

This isn't Zoe's first stop on the road to cyborgdom either. She's already implanted a tiny magnet in the tip of her finger, enabling her to feel nearby magnetic fields of all sorts. That's notably less practical than an NFC chip, but certainly an interesting exploration in our relationship with machines. Apparently both are too small to screw with airport security, MRIs, or debit cards. The two implants also don't interfere with one another. As for the pain level of getting the implant, Zoe says it barely hurt compared to the magnet.

The NFC chip in question is an NXP NTAG216 which offers 888 bytes of data transmission; easily enough to issue commands and share links on smartphones, though she's still exploring the possibilities. For the immediate future, she aims to make a game that plays with her implant. Here's a quick look at what she can do now.

Zoe's got a background in body modification, realized this whole thing was crazy, and went ahead and did it anyway. When asked if other should try this, she says "DON'T BE CRAZY. ... I am a dumb, dumb person." The funny thing is, Zoe's not the first person to get this sort of implant, and likely not the last.

A few years down the line, procedures and products for these operations may very well be ironed out and regulated. In that hypothetical future, would you be interested in getting an NFC implant? Why or why not? Would you have the cojones to inject one into yourself if it meant you could get one now? What would you use it for?

fuzzylumpkin says:

That's true, I am. But to my knowledge the "mark of the beast" has to be willingly and knowingly accepted. If you are tricked or forced it loses its power. Hence all this "mark of the beast" junk people come out with is just that, junk. Even if you believe in magic. :p

jaeskill says:

How can you willingly and knowingly receive the mark of the beast, when his greatest deception is his non-existence? Is he at a booth somewhere giving them out and shaking hands?

His mark is known... which is why people are making the correlation. That means there is a conscious disregard for the warning, and a conscious decision involved if you receive the chip. No tricks involved.

Is unlocking your phone with your finger really that hard?

The mark also doesn't bestow any power to the receiver so saying "if you're tricked or forced it loses its power" sounds derpy.

jcg5862 says:

No f#&$%+g way. My dogs are micro chipped. I will not be electronically tracked from something implanted in my body.

Posted via Android Central App on my Moto X

Because that's exactly how nfc works. Especially given the size of the antenna in these chips. You'd be lucky if you could tell there was a chip there at 2 feet. So I'd be less worried about being tracked by my nfc implant, and more about the drone following my hand. Also, if I was someone who wanted to track you, I'd put the chip in your Moto X (which by the way is already there), or your credit card.

jcg5862 says:

I can turn my phone off or leave it at home.

You can leave it at home. Turning it off does nothing. Also how often do you leave it at home? My money is on almost never.

vonfranklin1 says:

Keep in mind that NFC readers are all around us. All I have to do is know where you been then with collide a scope I will be able to see you or where your going.

TenshiNo says:

NFC has a range of about 2cm (at least with this small of an antenna). It's not like they could track you walking through the mall with it.

If the government really wanted to track you, they could just trick you into carrying around an electronic device that constantly reports your exact GPS position.

Wait...

eahinrichsen says:

Oh shit, absolutely. That would be awesome.

Nathan Bael says:

Only if I could set it to lock and unlock my phone based on my hand (and assuming that NFC was more secure than regular lock codes). That way I could bypass whole fingerprint reader idea.

eahinrichsen says:

That would be cool, but as it stands now, you'd have to hold your phone in a very specific way, with the chip touching a pretty small area of the phone, to get it to unlock.

scaots says:

No, but it should be in a glove. Then the phone would know when to activate super sensitivity to work with gloves so that when not using gloves the ultra sensitive screen is not as jumpy. Could also tell the phone how thick gloves are to adjust sensitivity appropriately.

TenshiNo says:

That's actually a pretty cool idea.

Brainerd says:

Ah. No. Really bad idea. How "near" is near field, really? I know I can be tracked by my phone, credit cards, car, etc. But, a least I can put those down or stop using them. Biometrics would be fine with me, but no chip.

fuzzylumpkin says:

You have to be about half a centimetre away, I've seldom been that close to a satellite...

Posted via Android Central App

With a passive system like this, you could probably pick it up at about a meter or so when it's activated (when something is energizing and communicating with it), but you'd probably notice the equipment required to pick up the signal at that range, it's kind of not very portable.

TenshiNo says:

Something that could read a chip with this tiny of an antenna at a meter would probably put out enough EMF to make you dizzy or sick to your stomach.

Something handheld could probably pick it up at 1-2cm, but that's not really a concern for being "tracked" without your knowledge. If you're worried about that, though, it might be time to ditch the cell phone.

Andy Janssen says:

Wait... Why is biometrics OK but NFC Not? Biometrics includes everything that makes you, as a person, unique. Your height, weight, facial features, finger prints etc... Many of those features can be seen by the millions of cameras connected to the 'net at any given time. They want to find you? They can. Chips be dammed.
And for all you people who keep crapping on the "Mark of the Beast," be warned: The mark is already upon you. It matters not if you choose to have NFC, tattoos, or any other modification. G-d himself made each of us unique. The tools we have already, and are making stronger as a collective, have turned that uniqueness into the mark you fear.

See I disagree. The first comment to start the debate was religious based. The heathens didn't say anything about religion until it was brought up by a believer.

So therefore, we are discussing tech here, not religion. It's not anyone's fault for what they believe, but it's amazing how more and more people are now not quiet about not believing. And when they say something back to a believer, who is still not used to someone actually not believing, you have nothing else to say, except something about "I have rights too" blah blah blah. Get over it and keep your beliefs to your self on a tech site. I don't come here for that crap.

shaggie04 says:

I don't come here for religious discussion either, but e_b_stallings didn't just say "something back to a believer". He went straight to bashing and said they should be removed from the site, as if religious people don't have a right to be here and expose themselves as religious, and that if it was up to him he "would have them exterminated". That's hate speech and there's definitely no room for that - here or anywhere else. Dude, you don't like what someone has to say? Just say you disagree, skip over it or kindly offer a rebuttal. Some people's views of tech are influenced by other beliefs they hold, religious or not, and that comes out at times like this. The poster right before e_b_stallings said he'd do it out of spite for the religious talk and the tracking paranoia. He didn't bash anyone to make that point, just made it clear that he sees things differently. Ok, man, if that's how you feel, go right ahead. Who cares that the first comment was religious based? So far, the majority of comments from believers and non-believers (that I have seen) have not been offensive. Even earlier, e_b_stallings told a poster he doesn't like him because of his belief in Christ. Ok, we don't have to like each other. That's not offensive. This particular comment from e_b_stallings was. If anyone should be removed from the site, it's him.

To be clear, I am a Christian. I would not do this, but it has nothing to do with me being Christian. I just don't think it would be practical. It would be cool to use my hand without a key to get into my house, but I prefer the idea of something like a NFC-enabled ring that someone else mentioned rather than an implant that could go bad or become quickly obsolete. Of course, my phone can serve the exact same purpose right now too.

jackwagon06 says:

Shaggie, don't take my first sentence as I'm agreeing with stallings, please. I surely dont. My comment started from reading at the beginning of the the posts, and landed here.

It's freedom of religion (or freedom to lack a religion), freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of press, freedom of everything else that we can do (including all the ones that the government is trying to snatch away) that have made this country (and every other free country) great.

/EndOfRant

A bit more on topic, I'm a Christian, and I don't really think this has anything to do with the 'mark of the beast' thing. Its basically just a little chip that can only be recognized within a few inches, and it can't even be seen outside the body. I definitely don't plan on getting one, but I just don't see the connection. Now, when the government starts requiring GPS trackers, or visible implants/tattoos, THATS, when we know its here.....

15israellai says:

What, is that actually safe?

Simon Sage says:

That's the big question. By the looks of things, a lot of people have managed to get the implant without any issues, but without any medical approval or standards, it's hard to say just how safe the whole thing is. A lot of the people that do it dissuade others in order to avoid untrained folks from mangling themselves.

daveio says:

The answer to your question is a thorough 'probably'. It has its risks, mostly associated with placement and infection, but if it's in and settles down then the risks are very low, mostly relating to the tag itself breaking.

The placement in the webbing between thumb and forefinger is designed to provide good padding and to have a reasonable distance from any critical structures like nerves and tendons.

I spent a few days reading up on the anatomy of the hand, best practices for body modification, RF energy inside the human body, and so on, considered it safe enough for me, and that's why I put mine in; you have to make the decision yourself and assume the risks.

Just out of curiosity, would this show up on metal detectors? Like at airport security? And if so, what the hell would she tell them?

Xingularity says:

Yes I would. It would become like a digital fingerprint. Imagine getting into the car and the car turning on because you are in a car. Kinda like having a keyless fob but without the fob. Unlocking and opening a door by just turning the knob because the knob "knows it is you. You could type on a keyboard to your computer and never be asked to input a password because the keyboard "reads" that it is you. I can see endless possibilities.

Deus Ex is not a game about cyborg, it's about augmentation (not that kind you're thinking about).

It's not even just a "popular shooter game" - it's a fantastic, genre defining RPG. Definitely in my Top 5.

If they could knock me out for the operation, hell yeah! :)

eahinrichsen says:

Not a chance, unfortunately. It'd be local anesthetic only. General anesthesia is a huge financial cost and an even bigger legal liability.

What about if she needs an MRI?
They are going to have to remove the NFC chip just to perform a procedure that is supposed to be non-invasive and painless.
Not for me

My friend broke his hand bad, He has steel screws and a steel plate. He had a MRI last year and just had to keep his hand outside the machine.

I won't inject one until it has at least 16GB of space available and can access WiFi.

I wouldn't consider it until after Apple has replaced it with their own proprietary standard that everyone else is forced to scramble to support. And even then, they'd just change it again in five years.
