The intent is to provide immediate positive identification of patients both in hospitals and in emergencies. Doctors, emergency-room personnel and ambulance crews could get immediate identification without resorting to looking for wallets and purses for ID. If, for example, you had a pre-existing medical condition or allergy, this could be taken into account immediately. The millimeter RFID tags will be implanted in the fatty tissue of the upper arm.
Biblical References to a Physical Mark There's just too much evidence to discard the possibility that the Mark of the Beast is a subdermal microchip implant, namely the Verichip implant.
In fact, the language in Revelation strongly supports such an idea. We'll explore Revelation in the next few sections, but first Verichip radiofrequency identification tag take a closer look at the Verichip.
RFID is also being hyped as the next big thing in personal identification. There are two types of RFID microchips a.
The barcode replacements and current versions of the Verichip implant are passive transponders. A passive transponder requires an outside source of energy to activate. A burst of energy within a close distance usually a few inches charges the microchip enough to respond with whatever information is stored on it.
In the case of the Verichip, that information is a 16 digit identification number which is then cross referenced against a database for unlimited amounts of information.
In contrast, active RFID tags have their own power supply and require no outside energy to broadcast their information. Because this type of microchip will soon be implanted in the body, an internal renewable power supply is a must.
This is a major challenge and is also big business. Commercial devices are coming to market which will be surgically implanted and require some sort of power supply.
This is nothing new, consider the pacemaker. The big difference though is that a pacemaker runs on batteries, and batteries need to be replaced. Replacement requires another costly operation, which inherently involves risk.
The point of an internal renewable power supply is that the batteries will never have to be replaced. There is already existing technology that provides a means of creating an electrical current through the process of temperature change.
The Mark of the Beast is said to be in the hand or forehead and it's no surprise that these are prime areas for hot and cold changes. Thermo Life  owned by Applied Digital Solutions through it's purchase of eXI Wireless, is a technology that converts temperature change into electricity.
One of the main advantages of a powered active RFID implant is to allow for tracking. In fact, Applied Digital Solutions is currently hard at work incorporating GPS into their Verichip for the allowance of global tracking . Thermo Life will likely power these devices.
The name alone is reminiscent of eternal hell fire, exactly what partakers of the Mark of the Beast can look forward to. Applied Digital Solutions has already been successful in marketing and developing external devices that track people at small and large scales.
RoamAlert also comes in an implantable version. Verichip Corp recently pulled all references to their VeriPay product . They have been known to remove specific references to their products only to have them resurface when the time is right .
Not long ago their VeriKid  product tracked children in urban environments, but they have also since pulled this product, likely until the market is able to accept it more readily.
It was easy to see the similarities between VeriKid and the Mark of the Beast. The tracking doesn't stop at geographic location either. Heart rate, breathing, temperature, sleep, and consciousness can all be monitored from any remote location .
All of this is already being used in real world applications. Because Applied Digital Solutions holds the patent to "A transceiver device implantable in a human body comprising: No company can legally step in and manufacture a similar device.
And the patent is absolutely correct when it states that "The device meets the growing demand for a new level of safety and peace of mind. The first people to receive the Verichip in large numbers will be those who society feels need a watchful eye; children, the elderly, immigrants, prisoners and paroled criminals are all likely candidates, and the list goes on.
Police officers and gun owners could also be some of the first to accept the implant. A microchip in the hand and another in the gun would allow only the owner to fire the weapon, thereby reducing accidental death and increasing safety  .
Verichip Corp is already marketing to a diverse range of individuals. The microchip implant seems ready to go, so what's left before mass adoption? Security is probably the biggest factor since the current generation of the Verichip has already proven to be insecure  .
And there's no room for error when finances and identification are at stake.The VeriChip is a radio frequency identification (RFID) device that is injected just below the skin; the subdermal RFID tag location is invisible to the naked eye.
A unique verification number is transmitted to a suitable reader when the person is within range. Passive RFID tags, like the VeriChip, boast a number of unique, significant features. Passive RFID tags have longer lifetimes than active RFID tags (with onboard batteries) and the, the estimated lifetime of a VeriChip is over 20 years.
The passive RFID tags can only broadcast low-frequency radio waves because of their minimal power.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology uses radio waves to identify people or objects. There is a device that reads information contained in a wireless device or “tag” from a distance without making any physical contact or requiring a line of sight. VeriChip™ Implantable RFID for The Health Industry Ann Marburger Jim Coon Kevin Fleck VeriChip Corporation markets the world’s first sub-dermal radio frequency identification device (RFID). This invention can be used in many healthcare, emergency, financial, and security animal-implantable and external RFID tags for years. VeriChip. Destron Fearing, a subsidiary of Digital Angel, initially developed the technology for the VeriChip. In , the VeriChip implanted device and reader were classified as Class II: General controls with special controls by the FDA; that year the FDA also published a draft guidance describing the special controls required to market such devices.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the country's first radio-frequency identification chip that can be implanted in humans. The KHz RFID chips could save lives and possibly limit injuries from errors in medical treatments, according to VeriChip Corp., a .
RFID tagging is an ID system that uses small radio frequency identification devices for identification and tracking purposes. An RFID tagging system includes the tag itself, a read/write device, and a host system application for . RFID, which stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, is currently making leaps and bounds as a replacement for the common barcode.
RFID is also being hyped as the next big thing in personal identification. There are two types of RFID microchips (a.k.a. tags or transponders) in development, passive and active.
