Is a Human RFID Implant the ultimate user interface?

With a xNT NFC microchip RFID implant a person can interact seamlessly with their phone, car, motorbike, security doors and more – it’s wacky, I know, but could it be the future?

The above can be re-written and used with any NFC capable device – one example might be for contactless payments on the London Underground.  Imagine never having to fumble around for you wallet again, just touch the contactless card reader to pay for your trip or your latte even.

The xNT contains a ISO / IEC 14443-A NTAG216 RFID chip set. This chip set is 100% NFC Type 2 compatible. Inside, the chip set is embedded in a 2x12mm cylindrical Schott 8625 bio-compatible glass cladding, which is pre-loaded into a syringe. The xNT can be read and written with devices using 13.56MHz RFID and all NFC compatible readers / writers, including USB devices and many NFC-enabled Android smartphones. They are rewritable and can store data such as your business card (vCard), medical and allergy information or emergency contact details.

The chip uses RFID technology (Radio Frequency Identification) and this only works within a short distance (1-2mm). This chip cannot be used to track people, or for any other form of surveillance. It is not possible.

At the #IoTDinner on the 28th June we have one such person coming along directly following their implant procedure to talk to us about their motivations for having it done, how it works and more importantly how it felt to have the procedure done.

With this extraordinary speaker in addition to our existing speaker form Samsung and the demonstration of the Amazon Echo prototype from Unilever we bring the future of UX full circle from keyboard to touch, voice to implant!
