If you thought The Grudge was the scariest thing you’ve seen on screen, you must have not yet watched Showtime’s ‘The Dark Net’. In short, the series show how humans are procreating less and merging digitally into technology with bio-hacks. That makes for a bad combination on a few different levels.
Without getting into non-techical issues (such as moral, ethical, or legal), I have a technical question: How the heck are we going to going to do a forensic analysis of a bio-hacked…human?
Before the human race ends up looking like robots, we are already in the era of implanting electronic data devices in our bodies. Check out http://dangerousthings.com to find how you too can jab an injection device into your hand and shoot a RFID under your skin…all by doing it yourself. As for me, I don't think I'll be joining in that movement anytime soon.
RFID (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio-frequency_identification) tags store data. Data such as medical, financial, personal, or any type of information can be stored on a RFID tag, although the amount is quite limited currently (2-10 kilobytes?). That's not much data, but depending on the content, it may be more than enough to cause a war or bankrupt a company....
