"this is something you can use just like a key badge" at a recent tech conference, hannes sjoblad explained how a microchip implanted in his hand makes his life easier. it replaces all the keys and cards that used to clutter his pockets. (hannes sjoblad/chief disruption officer, "epicenter" i use my chip many times a day, for example, i use it to unlock my smart phone, to open the door to my office. sljoblad calls himself a biohacker. (hannes sjoblad/chief disruption officer, "epicenter") we biohackers, we think the human body is a good start but there is certainly room for improvement the first step in that improvement is getting a microchip about size of a grain of rice slipped under the skin. suddenly the touch of a hand is enough to tell the office printer this is an authorized user. it felt very scary but at the same time it felt very modern. the microchips are radio frequency identification tags. the same technology widely used in things like key cards. the chips have been implanted in animals for years to help identify lost pets. now the technology is moving to humans. but each touch leaves a digital footprint... and that can compromise privacy. (ian shore/ exec. editor, cnet) we're talking about a nonstop potential connection to my body, right, and i can't turn it off, i can't put it away, it's in me. that's a big problem. even a dedicated biohacker has concerns. (hannes) it's very easy to hack a chip implant, so my advice is don't put your life secrets on a chip implant. but biohackers also predict the next generation of chips will save lives by monitoring health and fitness. for now being chipped means never having to say you're sorry you forgot your keycard. bryan i don't think i'm ready for something like that. 'john blackstone' reporting. lauren
