Here's a story that will do the bar code on the back of Dark Angel star Jessica Alba's neck one better:
A network of satellites sends a positioning signal to a chip implanted beneath your skin. That chip, powered solely by body heat, relays the signal and your body's vital stats to a ground station.
The folks manning that ground station, as well as 'authorized' [WONDER WHO THAT COULD BE?] Internet users, can use that information for identifying you, tracking you and monitoring your health.
It's not sci-fi. Applied Digital Solutions (ADS) will, on Oct. 30, unveil and demonstrate Digital Angel, or DA, which is being touted for a number of uses.
