Tracking kids via microchip ‘can’t be far off,’ says expert
It’s a thought that is just a little too Orwellian for most people — putting a microchip inside your body. But there are people who are doing just that already.
For most of those who have, it’s a matter of convenience. Now, they can log onto their computer, lock or unlock their front door, or even start their car with a wave of a microchip implanted in their hand.
Now let’s take the technology one step further.
What if you could implant a chip in your child which could help bring him or her home in the event they were lost or worse — kidnapped?
Experts are working on that possibility right now. There are already working on products you can buy, like watches or bracelets or tracking bugs to drop into a backpack which can be tracked by GPS. But tracking a microchip, placed inside a human body is another matter.
