Getting "Chipped" - Interviews with RFID Pioneers

Via Make Magazine:
I met up with a bunch of RFID innovators at the Seattle Dorkbot Gathering at the COCA art gallery. These folks are implanting RFID chips into their bodies and making cool projects that they can interface with. These RFID tags are tic-tac sized and are the same kind of thing that many pets have so that they can be identified if found. Flat versions can be found in library books too. In this video I interview Amal and Jennifer who have both been "chipped." You'll also see Phillip get injected with his own RFID tag. It's a big needle and so this video is not for those who throw up or pass out at the sight of big needles.
