Man implants transit car in his hand to make life easier

Wearable technology goes the next step

In order to avoid misplacing his Opal transport card, a Sydney man has had the critical chip part of the card implanted in his hand.

The man, who has had his name officially changed to Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow-Meow says that his goal is to have frictionless interaction with technology, although he does not recommend that people try this without doing considerable research including identifying risks such as infection.

The only problem we can see is that he has had the chip implanted in his left hand where all the gates on Sydney trains are designed to have people present their cards with their right hand.
