Human Tracking Chip Created By Xega

Human Tracking Chip Created By Xega 

If one had to save the number of people who go missing, one would have to be able to track them. GPS and other such technologies usually don’t help.

Hence, the Xega Company has created an injectable chip, which is the size and shape of a rice kernel. It can be injected into the client’s body using a syringe. The chip sends out signals from the person’s body and one could locate and pinpoint the location of someone in distress. The chip costs about $4000 and comes with an annual fee of $2,200. This may mean we won’t see any more kidnappings and persons going missing.

    I’ve been involved in GPS technology for the last four years as a consultant and as a developer, something to be inserted under the skin in order to be traceable, is still a sci-fiction gadget, just think in the battery size of your mobile phone and the time between charge, plus a system needs an antennain order to send and receive signasl, what I see is a device that 12 years ago was inserted under my dog skin with the Natinal Dogs Association register, which you can read using a propper scanner, and as the article states a second device is the one that reads the RFI info and later send it with the GPS data.

    Very expensive, most when you know that theres cheaper but reliable devices with the power to transmit special info.
