Tesla Model 3 Owner Implants Keycard Chip Into Her Arm

The owner of a Tesla Model 3 in the United States has had the chip from the vehicle’s keycard implanted into her forearm so she can open the doors and drive the car by simply waving her arm near the car’s sensors.

The owner in question, who goes by the alias Amie DD on YouTube, is a software engineer and clearly no stranger to ‘body modification.’ In fact, she had an RFID tag inserted into her arm years ago to enable her to open the front door at her house and even send a smartphone’s browser directly to her personal website.

Amie ordered a Tesla Model 3 and hoped that the electric sedan’s keycard would use RFID technology that would allow her to simply transfer the data from the card to her existing chip. This didn’t work out, so she instead decided to take the chip out of the EV’s keycard and put it straight into her arm.

To get the chip and antenna from the card, it was dropped into a container filled with acetone, dissolving the plastic of the card and leaving nothing but the chip and antenna that were encased in a biopolymer. She then headed to a body modification studio where the small chip was inserted into her arm. (BTW, if you’re not scared of blood, you should probably would look away for parts of the second video which details the ‘installation.’

Amie doesn’t actually mention in the videos how well the chip operates from her arm, but speaking with The Verge, confirmed that it does work, though her forearm must be about one-inch (25 mm) from the car’s center console before it will start up.

 

  • NO DESIRE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.
    JUST LOOKING AT THE PIC I CAN SEE SHE MAKES A LOT OF STUPID LIFE CHOICES.

    • Jason Miller

      Just because you choose not to do such things doesn’t mean that they are stupid. You might also want to just reach over and tap the Caps Lock button as well.

      • Craig

        She made a stupid life choice Jason. As for MICHGO’s CAPS – that’s just MICHGO. And it’s fine with us.

          TELL EM’ CRAIG!

        • HD

          Judgmental much? Would love to see how commenters look that criticize…

          • Craig

            Can you say…’hypocrite’?

      • Aeromann

        No, she’s not stupid, you are true!
        She’s sick. 😉

      • Thule B

        No, Jason Miller, she’s pretty stupid. She’s not keeping this car for the rest of her life. This technology is only temporary until biometrics are perfected. She’s stupid.

  • iddqd

    NWO’s wet dream, this sheep.

    • Aeromann

      It will not finish nicely…

  • A very modified lady, indeed.

    • Aeromann

      She’s an android.

  • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

    So, is she planning on keeping the car until her sunset years in highly doubts, tho’.

  • TrevP

    WTF

  • Bo Hanan

    Because a key is so hard to remember to have…

  • sidewaysspin

    Burglars will just chop off her arm.

  • TheBelltower

    Is she seeing anybody!?

  • Wandering_Spirit

    The ordinariness of madness, explained rationally.

  • Six_Tymes

    the entire thing was a well thought out way to promote they’re tattoo “body modification” business. personally I don’t like tattoos but to each their own. she sounds like a very smart business person, and is quite attractive = successful business, obviously.

    • ONCE THE TAT FAD FADES SOMEONE IS GONNA MAKE A FORTUNE IF THEY CAN FIGURE A WAY TO REMOVE THEM…OR GO INTO THE LONG SLEEVE SHIRT BUISNESS.

  • Aeromann

    I read all of the comments and they are interesting. There are few cultivated and clever people who knows what is it. I am more afraid for the next brainwashed generations. 😓

  • Howfarr

    So basically she’s only done it for Youtube revenue..
    Idiot

  • db

    Hmm, car gets into an accident, perhaps gets written off, back under the knife she goes…. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/564bf4d64d740904c41837cfe808eb27a6b60523cda9b04b60694211296f9a6d.gif

  • Thule B

    She’s a friggin idiot. This technology will soon go way of the Dodo bird. Soon enough, the cars will be using retina identification (or other forms of biometric measure) for opening and operation.

    • Aeromann

      Yes 😐

  • Afi Keita James

    No RFID Chip.

  • Mr. EP9

    Dumb is as dumb can get. And my goodness, look at all those tattoos.
