Bionics aren’t confined to Sci-fi movies anymore. As technology progresses, people may soon become part machines, thanks to various kinds of implants. While that day is still far away, a recent event in Ukraine gives a sneak peek into the future. A demonstration of the new ‘Dangerous Things’ xNT Implant at a conference was well received and covered by few media outlets as well.
Dangerous Things xNT Implant is a bio-implantable NFC chip that can be used to store any information, including credit card information, key card data, Bitcoin cryptographic keys and more. The chip was demonstrated by a German Professor Patrick Cramer during the Black Sea Summit 2016 held recently in Kiev. The Black Sea Summit is an annual conference on latest innovations and technologies.
The Dangerous things xNT Implant was one of the main attractions at the event. According to media reports, the implantation procedure was carried out for the first time in Ukraine. The $99 NFC tag enclosed in a cylindrical biocompatible glass comes preloaded in an injection syringe assembly. Many participants at the event have reportedly gotten themselves these implants.
