The owner of Tesla unlocks his car with the chip IN HANDS – he says that the Bluetooth on his phone is not always working

One Tesla owner will never lose his keys.

Brandon Dalaly had a tiny proximity chip implanted under the skin of his right hand so he could unlock his vehicle without relying on a smartphone – whose Bluetooth functionality isn’t always reliable, he says.

Dalaly posted a video on Twitter showing him implanting a tiny VivoKey Apex chip. The chip uses the same technology known as the short-range communication protocol that makes Apple Pay and Hotel Keyless Entry working.

The surgery took place a week and a half ago and was performed by a professional skin piercer who used a size 4 needle and anesthetized the area with lidocaine.

The entire process, chip, and procedure cost only $ 400.

In response to a Twitter user question why he got an implant, since he always carries his smartphone with him, he said:

“For me, this is handy (no pun intended) because my phone’s Bluetooth power management is so aggressive that it doesn’t always unlock the car. So it helps in such cases.

Dalaly is in the beta group of around 100 people testing a product that can be used to control multiple devices, not just Tesla cars, Teslarati said. Its chip can perform “secure transactions and Java card applets.”

“The company that put it all together has literally its own app store where you can install applications wirelessly in your body using these chips,” he explained.

“And one of the apps turned out to be Tesla’s key. This was the first app I installed since I have Tesla and now use it as a dongle when my Bluetooth dongle fails or I don’t have a dongle card. You only use your hand.

This is the second chip Dalaly has implanted.

The first is the key to his home, and also stores his contact card, medical information, and other such items. This chip can be scanned with any cell phone, which then reveals the information – and it shines an eerie green under its skin when scanned.

“The whole idea was for me to have the house key in my left hand and the car key in my right hand. And then the really cool thing is that, once approved, they can wirelessly activate the new chip that I just have for credit card transactions, ”explained Teslarati.

“I can connect a credit card to it and I can use it wherever there are touch-to-pay terminals.

Dalaly, who works in the tech industry, has dismissed concerns that some people are being tracked by such chips.

HOW ARE HIGH-TECH CHIPS IMPLANTS USED?

In 2016, the Dutch traveler Andreas Sjöström had an NFC chip implanted in his hand, which allowed him to break through security

In December 2021, Stockholm startup Epicenter revealed a way to wear a passport of a COVID vaccine – in a microchip implanted under the skin

In July, a 48-year-old New York patient who is unable to move or speak due to ALS received a permanent brain implant that allows him to communicate telepathically

Elon Musk’s neuralink plans to implant chips in people with brain conditions to help them communicate properly

– It’s funny because these chips don’t track anything. An external power supply would be needed to track anywhere. And their phones follow them anyway, wherever they go. If you go to Google’s location history, it will show you step by step where you’ve been, ‘he said.

Over the years people have been implanted with different types of chips for different purposes.

A 48-year-old New York patient who is unable to move or speak due to severe ALS paralysis was the first to receive a permanent brain implant that enabled him to telepathically communicate.

This operation was a milestone for Synchron, the start-up behind the technology that beat Elon Musk’s Neuralink to a blow with its progress.

This procedure used a 1.5-inch brain-computer interface (BCI) implant as a stentrode – made of wires and electrodes, which was implanted into the patient’s brain without incising the skull or damaging the tissue.

Epicenter, a Stockholm-based startup, unveiled a new way to wear a COVID vaccine passport late last year – in a microchip using NFC technology implanted directly under the skin.

Dutch traveler Andreas Sjöström had an NFC chip implanted in his hand before heading to the airport to catch the plane, and he took the viewers on the journey by waving his hand over the scanner, letting him slide through airport security and straight to his seat on the plane.

He added an xNT implant from Dangerous Things as part of a trial with Scandinavian Airlines to upgrade customer experiences.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink aims to implant the chips in people with cognitive impairment or diseases such as Parkinson’s disease to enable them to communicate better.

His hand glows green when the chip is activated.  This is the second chip Dalaly has implanted - the first is the key to his home, and also stores his contact card, medical information, and other such items.
