Identity Chip

Identity Chip.

Identification chips are placed in or attached to many products today to track and trace them. Identity chips can be implanted into products, animals and people which can be usefull when they need to be tracked or identified.

Pet Chips - Dog Chip - Pet Microchip.

Pet microchipping has been around for many years and has become very popular for identification of your beloved pet if it gets lost or stolen. The microchipping of your per dog or cat or other animal is a simple process which can be done at home or at the pet chip business. A small microchip about the size of a grain of rice is painlessley injected under the animals skin. This identity microchip has a unique code which when scanned can give the your details as owner of the pet such as your address and telephone number. If your pet becomes lost or stolen and finds its way to a vets, or the rspca it will be scanned and the microchip gives the information via petlog required to contact the owner. Pet identity microchipping is generally done on dogs, cats and horses and usually costs £20 or less to chip a single animal.

Human Implantable Microchip.

The implantable identity chip can be inserted under the skin for identification purposes with a unique numerical code, which can be read by scanners a few feet away. These types of chips have been used to track lost pets, which when discovered can be scanned and reunited with their owners. VeriChip™ is an identification chip manufactured in U.S.A, implanted just under the skin which can be scanned to identify the person by an identification number and therefore the details associated with that person. Doctors have used these chips with their patients so that if the patients become ill and are taken to hospital in an emergency, they can be positively identified and their medical history downloaded. The operator of the scanner would also require a code to retrieve the data to stop third parties possibly stealing any important information.

There is no implantable identification chip that can give the position of an individual such as a global positioning system or GPS. All GPS tracking systems require a power source to be able to track the chip and this is not possible with the implantable chip technology. If a power source could be implemented, how would it be charged once implanted into the body? Obviously a GPS enabled chip would be invaluable to trace and track the position of missing persons or criminals, but would also be open to track anybody or anything anywhere on the planet. Much discussion has taken place with regard to chip implantation and tracking from scientists, governments and religious groups. The idea and use of an implantable chip has alarmed Christian groups who fear it is the biblical “Mark of The Beast”. If a traceable human chip was produced it would change the world as we know it today. Futuristic films showing tracking of individuals anywhere on the planet and all their information accessible at the touch of a button would become reality. .

RFID - Radio Frequency Identification.

Radio frequency identification RFID is an automatic identification system which relies on storing and remotely retrieving information using RFID tags to transmit and transponders to retrieve. The standard RFID tags are used by the retail market to trace and track stock. The implantable identification chips manufactured are RFID tags which have a limited scanning range depending on the frequency of the tag or chip. The scanning range for a handheld device to a RFID tag is between 1m and 30m, which makes it impossible to track people or anything else over any distance. The implantable chips are similar to security tags used in retail shops, but transmit more information to the scanner.

Possible Human Implant Uses.

· Information on the implanted person, including their personal information, contact details and medical information. · Homes and cars could be accessed without the use of a car, by just scanning the individual’s implanted chip. · Payment for goods by scanning the identification chip without money or cards. · Added security for individual people, buildings and transportation. .
