Vendors/Products In modern times, a portable storage device isnít ever far from our possession. Either we can use the storage on our phones or tablets, or we keep a small flash drive on a keychain. Accessing the data, however, may not be convenient in a given situation. Making the storage and access of data more convenient, artist Anthony Antonellis implanted an RFID chip into his hand that can store data which can be wirelessly accessed by a smartphone.

Last month, we saw Rich Lee implant magnetic headphones into his ears so he would have headphones on his person at all times. Now, Antonellis takes a similar route to further simplifying something that is already simple. By implanting an RFID chip the size of a grain of sand into his hand, he can access data stored on the chip. The chip, as you may have guessed, barely holds data ó only about 1KB to 2KB ó but the concept has been proven, and Antonellis has successfully accessed and displayed an animated GIF on his phone that is stored on the implant.
