Typical uses, security concerns, and generating passwords in the body
Kramer discusses how medical devices are usually for people with a loss or accident, how the Digiwell implants are powered by near-field communication tech, and they have partnered with a company producing them. Using implants as a key, considerations of security of biometric, the security benefits of this, access control, and the process of generating passwords inside your body.
Reversibility, law enforcement uses, and implications for retail
How technology will be adopted in future, facilitating the changes, why it is important that the implants be reversible to take it out, how tissue is not growing in the chip since it is smooth, potential uses for law enforcement or regulators for implant tracking, quick pays, other physical hardware with this kind of chip, how retailers are starting to implement to make transactions easier.
Challenges, financial transactions, and the future
Plus other challenges of implementing, and why some uses are a few years off. Technological challenges right now for financial transactions, such as antennas being too small, current use cases, and identifying yourself. The future of implantables, and current focuses on neutropics, neurofeedback, neurotechnology, implant technology, bionics, and the possibilities of brain implants to connect us directly into the Internet. Licensing as a piercing, why the next generation on biopolymer side will need more medical training. And how 40-50k people around the world already have implants,by
