Digiwell will teach you an NFC trick your old dog may already know

Digiwell will implant an NFC chip in your hand for free at Cebit.

Even if there's no pain, what might you gain? Kramer uses his chip implant to carry his business card and to open the front door of his house, which is fitted with a special NFC lock. Other applications being tested include authorizing bitcoin payments and checking in for flights, he said.

Digiwell goes out of its way to reduce the risk of infection in the implanting process, but one biohacker last year sought to increase it: U.S. Navy Petty Officer Seth Wahle programmed an NFC impant to infect Android phones with malware when he held them, according to CIO magazine.
