Are Micro Chips Being Implanted In Humans?
Debunking GPS Tracking Myths
GPS tracking devices are used for a wealth of different applications ranging from senior safety to fleet tracking vehicle management. However, more and more consumers are seeking an RFID microchip solution or GPS implant for their children’s personal safety. What these concerned parents are seeking is a human microchipping piece of technology to help them monitor their kids to ensure safety. Although every parent can understand the desire to use every available technological resource to safeguard their children, sometimes the line between reality and fiction can get blurred. This is the case with implant microchips with real time GPS that allegedly can go under the skin of a person. Let’s be very clear, there is no such thing (at this time) of a GPS tracking chip or ID chip that can be inserted into the skin of a human for the purposes of data collection/tracking. Let’s take a closer look now at why microchipping technology to spy on people is more science fiction than Kevin Warwick global conspiracy fact.
The primary reason an implantable RFID chip is not a viable option as human tracking devices is because of power. Think about it for a moment. Real-time GPS devices that utilize location-based data from the Global Positioning System are roughly one inch by two inches. The reason for this size is that the monitoring device needs to be powered by an internal lithium-ion battery pack. Having an RFID microchip that large under the skin would not be very effective. If a GPS tracker was designed to be so small to where it could be implanted in the skin, which wouldn’t be an option due to other components of the tracker being large, how would the device be powered? The answer is it couldn’t be powered The reality is that technology simply hasn’t advanced far enough to where GPS components and a power source can be engineered small enough to actually be implanted under the skin. Therefore, such an application as involuntary microchipping is a myth.
Implanted Device For Personal Data Collection
Mark Of The Beast Or RFID Implant Conspiracy?
No GPS device is designed small enough to be implanted under the skin, making the verichip implant talk among British scientists such as Kevin Warwick nothing more than conspiracy talk. However, that doesn’t mean personal tracking solutions aren’t available to enhance safety. For example, GPS tracking bracelet watches are on the market that allows caregivers to monitor seniors battling memory-related illnesses or children with special needs. These GPS trackers typically provide 40 continuous hours of tracking data and offer web-based monitoring so people in different areas can access the data with username and passcode.
Personal tracking systems also include alerting features that will transmit notifications if a person leaves a safe zone, providing instant real-time access to the whereabouts of an individual in case of an emergency. GPS trackers may not be able to be implanted under the skin of a person yet but that doesn’t mean solutions aren’t available for personal tracking. With GPS bracelets capable of offering live tracking families can enhance safety and be alerted the moment a loved one is in trouble.
