Russian doctor has already implanted the sixth electronic chip

Obstetrician-gynecologist Alexander Volchek from Novosibirsk dreams of an implant-glucometer and selects a model for a new implantable cryptone carrier. For the first time, he installed a chip under his skin in 2014 - it was a simple carrier of the access code of a client of one of the local ski resorts. And then a series of fascinating experiments began.

All the chips in the doctor's body are of different sizes, from 1.5x8 mm to 2x12 mm. They are made in the form of a tiny tube of glass inert to the human body, inside which there is a ferrite core with a winding and a microcircuit. If necessary, such a capsule can be removed with little or no pain. Or put a few more - at will.

It can be compared to a tattoo - at first it is unusual and curious, but then the chip becomes commonplace, and you start to bring your hand to the lock to unlock it almost automatically. Alexander uses analogs of keys for doors and turnstiles at work, a business card, an authorization system in a personal computer, drives for storing other important passwords. But these are simple accessories, and as a developer, he is now working on a microprocessor implant with a wide range of functions.

A subcutaneous glucometer is another level of implantation. The technical basis for the creation of such devices already exists, but there is an organizational and psychological issue. This is not a passive device, but a non-removable device, on the round-the-clock operation of which a person's life depends. Not everyone will agree to trust the novelty so much, but innovators like Alexander Volchek or surgeon Vladimir Khoroshev are sure that this is the inevitable future of mankind.
