What do you think about having an RFID implanted into your body?

It would depend how useful it would be and how much it would cost. Right now, there is no usefulness for it, and it would cost a ton. So, no.

That's fair enough. I mean in the future, when the price is down. It could be used as ID, and have other information about you possibly. It could have emergency contacts, and possibly allow you to make payments.

Depends on how it is used, and how it could possibly be used. If it has a tracking system, then no. If it can be used as a method to pay for things, then sure. If it has my medical information, then again, sure, im fine with that. I dont get why people get so afraid of this technology.

On Facebook there's this technology page, and it posted about this.

Everyone started saying NWO, antichrist, 666, government tracking etc.

I told them that it would be very difficult for a government to slip in a GPS without you knowing and track your location.

I don't think I'd want location tracking as part of the package, but I'm not ruling out the possibility. It'd have to be done properly though, and I'd have to believe it very unlikely to be abused.

I would be willing to, under the assumption that it lacks a web server, or the ability to be traced via any method.

What effect do you think it would have with muggings?

Yeah, id be against it if it became mandatory. But if im in a car accident, and they rush me to the hospital, id rather have an RFID which tells the doctors what blood type i am than them using up their supply of O when I, being an Type AB could get any type of blood.

It depends. If, for instance, they are used as 'wallets', then it could lead to an increase of cases where a mugging includes assault with a deadly weapon. That is, unless they put in secondary verification; like a pin code, or a biometrics scan. They could also include a feature on the implant that monitors its environment, and make it wipe all data off of itself when there is a big enough change of a certain type. Doing any of those things could also lead to a reduction of muggings, due to a lack of actual profitability.

Or the muggers could start cutting off fingers and such. Just a thought.

They could do that now. Your average mugger doesn't have the stomach for torture.
