A doctor from Siberia, Alexander Volchek, does not carry a pass to work or any other access cards because all of them are implanted under his skin. Volchek is not the first person to have decided to become somewhat cyborg: the so-called biohackers community in Russia has more than 50 people.

These biohackers say that the chips are implanted solely for convenience, and they laugh at the myths that they are now under the all-seeing eye of Big Brother.

Key to all the doors

The standard chip size is 2 by 12 millimeters; the minimum size is 1.5 by 8 millimeters. The design, which contains a ferrite core with a winding and a miniature chip, is packaged into a tube of biologically inert glass.

Volchek got his microchip under his skin with an injection using a large syringe with a thick needle. If desired, Volchek asserts, it can easily be extracted.
Apart from the six microchips under his skin, Volchek has over a 100 more lying at home. Some of them are analogues of intercom keys; others work on a different frequency and are capable of storing from 800 bytes to one kilobyte of information.

No more tickets for public transport

A supporter of Alexander Volchek, Konstantin Polyakov, from the city of Tyumen, is the first person in the world to pay for public transport using an implanted chip on his hand.

His story is amazing because the transport company itself contributed to the implantation of this microchip.

“The answer to the question why I decided to implant a chip in myself is quite trivial: I lost about five transport cards, and I got sick of it,” Polyakov told Sputnik.</strong>
