This woman implanted her Teslas valet key into her arm – Roadshow
Body modification has become increasingly commonplace in our society, such that we barely raise an eyebrow at someone with full tattoo sleeves or multiple facial piercings. Still, there’s another frontier in body modification that involves integrating tech into the human body. The people who do this are known as biohackers.
The lead-up to the actual implantation of the device involved Amie learning how to program her own valet keys, dissolving a key in acetone and working with severalcompanies to have the RFID chip encapsulated in a biosafe plastic.
As far as the procedure goes, well, Amie filmed it, and it looks gnarly. It essentially amounted to that guy Pineapple taking what looks like a giant, stainless steel nail and driving it into her forearm just beneath the skin.
We’ll include the video here but warning, it’s not for the squeamish. There’s blood.
