Future "angel" care chips are coming for humans. Digital Angel in 2003 was the first to launch such a program. Then Applied Digital Solutions for Human Wander Alerts, and  PositiveID for Health oriented solutions.

This kind of sentimentalism will be at the crux of marketing campaigns about "chipping loved ones" including the elderly and children for CARE applications.

Per reports in Nine News, a survey by the credit card company indicated that 25% of Australians surveyed were "slightly interested" in the idea of an implant that would allow them to wave their hands to make a purchase.
The technology has existed for more than a decade, and consists of "a tiny antenna and an identification number, designed to be implanted between the thumb and index finger and detected by a radio frequency identification scanner."
The kicker?
Unfortunately, some past research has linked the chips to cancers in laboratory animals.

Workers at a new high-technology office building in central Stockholm are doing away with their old ID cards on lanyards, and can now open doors with the swipe of a hand — thanks to a microchip implanted in the body.

The radio-frequency identificatio (RFID) chips are about 12 mm long and injected with a syringe. 

"It's an identification tool that can communicate with objects around you,"  said Patrick Mesterton, CEO of the building, Epicenter Office.

"You can open doors using your chip. You can do secure printing from our printers with the chip, but you can also communicate with your mobile phone, by sending your business card to individuals that you meet," he said.

Mesterton thinks some of the future uses for implanted chips will be any application that currently requires a pin code, a key or a card, such as payments.

"I think also for health-care reasons ... you can sort of communicate with your doctor and you get can data on what you eat and what your physical status is," Mesterton said.

"You have your own identification code and you're sending that to something else which you have to grant access to. So there's no one else that can sort of follow you on your ID, so to say. It's you who decides who gets access to that ID," he said.

The implant program is voluntary for the workers in the office complex.

"It felt pretty scary, but at the same time it felt very modern, very 2015," said Lin Kowalska shortly after she had a microchip implanted in her hand.

Translation from the Dutch is as follows:

Professor warns of RFID implant in humans

  • Although some scientists are experimenting with injecting RFID chips in their own bodies, this can have serious consequences for humanity if it ever becomes commonplace. Before warns Katina Michael, a professor at the University of Wollongong.
  • Michael specializes in the social and ethical implications of emerging technologies. She states that injected RFID microchips actually be a unique identifier in the body. "And as we know numbers can be stolen, and data can be hacked. Remote computer problems in mapping the human body is full of dangers," she warns. RFID implants according to the professor for a surveillance society ensure that Big Brother is in our body.

"Researchers at Brown University have succeeded in creating the first wireless, implantable, rechargeable, long-term brain-computer interface. The wireless BCIs have been implanted in pigs and monkeys for over 13 months without issue, and human subjects are next."

"One of the features that the Brown researchers seem most excited about is the device’s power consumption, which is just 100 milliwatts. For a device that might eventually find its way into humans, frugal power consumption is a key factor that will enable all-day, highly mobile usage."

From Amazon.com summary reads:

Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains.

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon - a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world — and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.
