March 24, 2005—A set of digital photos chronicling the insertion of an RFID tag into the photographer's own left hand has been posted online. The ten pictures follow the various stages of the process from pre-insertion to the fully-healed hand. The caption under the last photo reads, "I can't feel the implant no matter what I do with my left hand... but I can feel it under the skin when I poke at it with my finger."
Why did the (unidentified) user do it? He doesn't offer much explanation on the rudimentary FAQ page. Based on what he plans to do now that he is chipped (equip his car, computer, and house with RFID readers to automate mundane tasks), it seems the process is an exercise in cutting-edge technology experimentation, nothing more.
The photos are worth a look
