Silicon chip implant. Door opens automatically for Professor Kevin Warwick, the first human cyborg, due to a signal from a silicon chip transponder implanted in his arm. The incision site is covered by a surgical dressing. The transponder is a glass capsule containing silicon chips and an electromagnetic coil. As he approaches the building a radio signal causes the transponder to transmit a unique code identifying him. The building then opens doors, switches on lights, turns on his computer and keeps track of his movements allowing him to be located easily. Kevin Warwick is Professor of Cybernetics at Reading University, England.
