Regina Dugan has plans for you…the former head of DARPA, and current head of Advanced Technologies at Motorola (owned by Google) wants citizens to submit to an edible microchip to “authenticate your identity.”
“This pill has a small chip inside of it with a switch,” said Dugan. “It also has what amounts to an inside out potato battery. When you swallow it, the acids in your stomach serve as the electrolyte and that powers it up. And the switch goes on and off and creates an 18 bit ECG wide signal in your body and essentially your entire body becomes your authentication token.”
She claims it’s perfectly safe for the user. And, of course, there’s no chance of this being used to nefarious purpose…no! Her even creepier idea is an electronic tattoo on your throat to read subvocalized speech — the kind most people do every day when censoring themselves publicly.
Take a good look at this woman’s face…would you trust her with anything?
