By Morgan Feldmeyer

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelation 13:16-18 (KJV)

Imagine a world without check-out lines, misplaced keys, or lost pets; a secure world where credit-card theft and office break-ins were less likely and where patients could give doctors and nurses their entire medical history upon arriving unconscious at the emergency room. While such occurrences have been considered unlikely or unreal, a new type of technology the size of a grain of rice is making such a world possible. This technology is called radio frequency identification (RFID) chips, which are mini microchips that send out radio signals, each with a unique frequency that can be picked up and read at various distances by a RFID scanner. These scanners read the unique identification number on each RFID chip and send and receive information from the chip according to the scanner and chip’s type. RFID chips are changing the lives of people and animals locally, nationally, and internationally in commerce, personal security, medical care, and law enforcement.

RFID chips are currently used to track large items and pets, as well as to provide extra security in credit cards and personal items. Different types of RFID chips are, “used to track large items, like cows, railroad cars and airline luggage,” (Bonsor and Fenlon). Likewise, many animal rights organizations, “endorse the use of electronic identification in animals,” (American Veterinary Medical Association) which can be a RFID chip imbedded into the animal’s skin that allows veterinarians and animal shelters access to pet owners’ contact information. In addition, “The Nilson Report, says 35 million contactless [RFID] chip [credit] cards are in circulation in the U.S.,” (Consumer Reports) because the information stored on an RFID chip is both encrypted and password protected and is therefore safer from identity hackers than most other types of data storage. Finally, though there has been limited testing of the chip’s effects on the human body, many people including 160 of Mexico’s attorney general’s employees are being micro-chipped in the tissue between the thumb and pointer finger so that they can open doors and unlock personal items like computers and cell phones, without using keys, pass cards, or passwords (Weissert).With the security and large amount of stored data that a RFID chip provides, the possibilities and ways of using an RFID chip are advancing daily.

In the near future, RFID chips are expected to radically change the way people shop, give medical information, and find missing loved ones. Experts expect RFID chips to replace bar codes in retail businesses, while people like Ramez Naam, a Microsoft software developer, “said he envisions using chip implantation to help monitor the location of people with Alzheimer’s disease,” (Brandon). Fox News also reported that RFID chips, “could be used to track criminals targeted for patrol who might wander into a restricted area,” (Brandon). Likewise, parents like Steffany Rodroguez-Neely believe that, “Micro-chipping [children] would be an extra layer of protection,” (Watson) if a child became lost. In addition, NBC News reported that a Florida family of three all had, “chips implanted in their arms. The family hoped to someday be able to automatically relay their medical information to emergency room staffers,” (Weissert).

While, micro-chipping objects and animals has become commonplace, micro-chipping humans is rapidly gaining support. Technology experts, government officials, and parents are convinced that RFID chip implants will soon be implemented in every person because of the easier and securer access to information, devices, buildings, and family members that this new technology provides. Though a world where every object and person is controlled by a RFID chip might still be a few decades in coming, there is no doubt that RFID chips are here to stay.
