IT may sound like sci-fi, but hundreds of Australians are turning themselves into super-humans who can unlock doors, turn on lights and log into computers with a wave of the hand.
Organic & Healthy reports that the land Down Under has become the first nation to begin microchipping its citizens, though NBC News predicted some years ago that, by 2017, Americans would all be microchipped.
Australia's drive to implant citizens with what many believe is the Biblical "mark of the beast" is "a clever propaganda campaign that equates RFID microchipping with becoming superhuman, and people are begging for it," News.com.au noted.
Shanti Korporaal, a recipient from Sydney, says that since she received the implant she has been able to go about daily life without cards and keys and that she hopes she would soon do away entirely with wallets, passwords or PINs.
Her goal now is to completely do away with her wallet and cards so that she can lead a futuristic lifestyle, and the sky's the limit as to what can be done next.
The implant is almost impossible to spot as it is just the size of a grain of rice. The microchips can be used in the same way as a smartphone and store complex data.
