For those that don’t know, VeriChips are implantable RFID tags “for people”. That way you can be tagged and tracked like cattle or Gillette razors.

Convenient, I guess.

Anyway, here’s a great article on the Make blog on cloning VeriChips. So much for using these to separate identical twins. I see this as one of those “good news/bad news” kind of things.

The good news is the bad guys don’t have to chop your arm off to steal your identity.

The bad news is VeriChips totally blow.

Or is that the good news? I’m easily confused.
