Montana Science Center employee gets chip making him part machine

BOZEMAN, Mont. – Montana Science Center Director of Technology Tim Schober voluntarily implanted a RFID chip inside his body making him part machine last Thursday.

RFID stands for Radio Frequency IDentification and is a simple transponder that transmits a small amount of data when stimulated by radio energy.

The chip is the size of a grain of rice and was implanted into the web of Schober’s hand through a single point piercing.

Schober has always been interested in the future of humanity as technology advances and the boundary between the two.
