Chips under the skin: Biohacking, the connected body is 'here to stay'
If you could replace your car keys, website login data, credit cards and bus passes with a chip embedded under your skin, would you? This is a question addressed this week at the Kaspersky Labs Security Analyst Summit by biohacker Hannes Sjoblad from BioNyfiken.
