Well you remember all those movies in which people put chips inside the body for some purpose, that process is part of something known as biohacking and every time it is gaining more relevance around the world. Now, Amie DD, owner of a Tesla Model 3, He took the chip from the key used to open the car and implanted it in his arm.

This chip is known as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) and the purpose of this technology is to transmit the identity of an object to its bearer. In this case, the chip came on a credit-sized card. Amie is a developer and became famous some time ago because another similar chip had already been implanted to open the door of your home.
Now, it occurred to him that it was a good idea to do it with his Tesla Model 3. The implant is the size of a Lego Stormtrooper, and to remove it Amie had to melt the card in acid.
Unfortunately, the programmer explains that the scope of the chip is not too good and he has to be close enough to his car to react.
The important thing about all this is that in the future we will surely have implanted chips such as our identity card or our bank cards in order to make payments safely. Without a doubt, the scope of biohacking can be enormous.
Here are a couple of videos of Amie DD where you can see the process which he followed to get his Tesla's RFID chip implanted. Either way, the full diary of this adventure is available at Hackday.
