This tiny device has the potential to give humans the ability to unlock their doors or log into a computer by a simple arm gesture.

The xNT implantable NFC (Near Field Communication) chip is a pin-sized RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) tag that hopes to make implantable technology a mainstream occurrence. By turning their bodies into a micro data center, users will potentially be able to perform day-to-day deeds just by flashing their arm.

The xNT is a 2mm x 12mm device compatible with all NFC compliant devices such as mobile phones and tablets and can be used to launch URLs, share contact details or even unlock phones. It is also ISO14443A compliant, which means it can be linked with commercial readers i.e. door locks, car ignitions and computer login systems.
