Kevin Warwick. Portrait of cyberneticist Kevin Warwick holding a silicon chip transponder. Its glass capsule contains silicon chips and an electromagnetic coil. In 1998, a transponder was implanted into his forearm, making him the first human cyborg. It sent identifying signals to a central computer that tracked his movements and allowed him access to his workplace by opening doors and switching on lights. Kevin Warwick is Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, England.
