Storing all of our personal information in a small inserted chip, readable by most electronic devices. Truth and Action previously reported on this issue, citing a BBC.com report, titled “BBC Propaganda: Why I Want A Microchip”
For other people, though, the idea of implanting themselves with microchips may conjure up spectres of surveillance and totalitarian control. “Every Hollywood movie has told them that implants are for tracking people,” says Graafsta. “People don’t get that it’s the same exact technology as the card in your wallet. When someone uses a credit card, wireless or not, they are tracked because several other corporations know who they are, when they purchased, how much they spent, and where they spent it.”…Graafsta also points out that embedding the chip under the skin reduces the distance that it can be read with a scanner, making it more secure. When it’s in your arm or hand, there’s less chance someone can surreptitiously scan your details, by sweeping a card reader nearby.
One company jumping on board the microchip wagon is PayPal. Truth And Action went in depth over what PayPal has to say about how this technology could save us from theft and make it easier on the consumer to purchase and store passwords and personal information. According to The Telegraph website, Jonathan LeBlanc, PayPal’s global head of developer evangelism has claimed the following:
“As long as passwords remain the standard methods for identifying your users on the web, people will still continue to use ‘letmein’ or ‘password123’ for their secure login, and will continue to be shocked when their accounts become compromised,” said Mr LeBlanc…Mr LeBlanc said PayPal is already working with some partners on developing vein recognition technologies and heartbeat recognition bands, and is also working with developers on prototypes of futuristic ID verification techniques…
“We were a founding member of the FIDO alliance, and the first to implement fingerprint payments with Samsung,” the company said a PayPal spokesperson.
“New PayPal-driven innovations such as one touch payments make it even easier to remove the friction from shopping. We’re always innovating to make life easier and payments safer for our customers no matter what device or operating system they are using.”
How far can this technology grasp before humans decide it's invading their lives too much and helping them too little? The truth is, if you decide to swallow a microchip pill designed by former DARPA director and current Motorola CEO, you may be able to access your car with keyless entry, but google maps also has access to your location.
Is this the new way of spying on the American population? Make them think their lives will be made easier while secretly watching their every move. And what about the mind-reading technology spoken about in Truth And Actions previous article “Former DARPA Director Wants You To Swallow ID Microchips”, as spoken about in the YouTube video in which
“This pill has a small chip inside of it with a switch,” said Dugan. “It also has what amounts to an inside out potato battery. When you swallow it, the acids in your stomach serve as the electrolyte and that powers it up. And the switch goes on and off and creates an 18 bit ECG wide signal in your body and essentially your entire body becomes your authentication token.”
And the ‘mind-reading’ tattoo?
“It has been known for decades that when you speak to yourself in your inner voice, your brain still sends neural spike volleys to your vocal apparatus, in a similar fashion to when you actually speak aloud,” states Extreme Tech’s John Hewitt, explaining that the device could convert these signals into a readable form.
