Meet…the Taggers

MAKE pal Mikey Sklar is in the New Yorker, he’ll also be at Maker Faire!“He has no tattoos, for example, or any desire to have any parts of his body pierced. He does have a radiofrequency identification chip implanted in him, though, and he is enthusiastic about having other electronic devices implanted in him, too. An RFID chip is about the size of a grain of rice. People who use them in novel ways call them tags. They call themselves taggers; someone with a chip implanted in him has been tagged.” Thanks Arwen! – Link.
