Ben Workman, a man from Utah was tired of using an actual key fob or smartphone to unlock his Tesla. So, he decided to surgically implant the key directly into his hand, thus enabling him to simply wave to unlock his vehicle. That was just the start, as now he can unlock his car, work doors, log on / off the computer and share contact information by simply waving.
Not only will he never forget his car keys again, but he likes to have some fun with the implant, as he plays tricks on people who don’t the implant is in his hand. How so? He tries t o convince them a banana is the key and then holds it up and magically the door unlocks. What’s next for Ben? He wants to find a way to integrate Apple Pay / Android Pay into his hand.
On the first two, I actually didn’t have anyone. I tried going to a veterinarian, a doctor, a piercing studio, no one would do it,” said Workman.
