A Utah man has implanted a Tesla key in the his hand making it possible to unlock his car with just a swipe of his hand.
This is not the first computer chip Ben Workman has had implanted; he has three others. Workman can can unlock his car, unlock doors at work, log on and off his computer and share contact information. The implants use the same tech that’s used for Apple Pay and Android Pay.
For his first two chips, he couldn’t convince his doctor or a piercing studio to help him. So, he ended up getting a family member to implant the chips for him.
“On the first two, I actually didn’t have anyone. I tried going to a veterinarian, a doctor, a piercing studio, no one would do it,” said Workman.
“In all reality it was experimentation and curiosity,” said Workman.
For his latest chip implantation he convinced a piercing studio to help him even though they were at first skeptical.
Workman also has a magnet implanted in his left hand.
“Which is literally just a magnet. It doesn’t have any interesting functionality besides magic tricks and fun stuff,” Workman said.
