The Cyborg Trend
from the uh-oh dept
So, last week we had a whole family who seemed a little too eager to implant themselves with microchips. Now, we have a Brazilian politician who is just as excited about it. I’m beginning to wonder exactly how the company who makes these chips, Applied Digital Solutions (who, by the way, are trying to trademark “get chipped”), found these folks. It seems like a scary marketing/PR plan to dig up random folks who make loud noises about how much they want to be cyborged. Next up, it will be some Hollywood or pop music star, and then suddenly we’ll be dealing with the latest pop culture fad – as all their fans want to “get chipped”.
