We are the world’s only supplier of the most advanced and rigorously tested consumer RFID and NFC transponder implants. Our founder Amal Graafstra has been using an RFID implant in his left hand since 2005, is a TEDx speaker, has written the book called RFID Toys for Wiley publishing, and is now pioneering exciting new possibilities developing high security cryptobionics with the launch of our new company VivoKey Technologies. New cryptobionic implants from VivoKey will expand what’s possible with your implant, enabling a more convenient, secure, and private digital world.
How does it work?
We have both RFID and NFC implants available. RFID is an acronym that means Radio Frequency IDentification, while NFC is an acronym meaning Near Field Communication. NFC is a strict set of protocols applied to existing RFID standards. This means NFC devices are also RFID devices, but not all RFID devices are NFC compatible. Implantable RFID and NFC “transponders” are batteryless (no power source), short range, magnetically coupled devices. A “reader”, like an NFC enabled smartphone or access reader on a door or building works by creating a small magnetic field. The implant must be placed in this very small magnetic field to power itself and communicate with the reader. Magnetic fields are very compact compared to normal radio electric fields, which is why implants work best when installed in the hand as they can easily be placed up to different types of readers on doors and buildings, sitting on desks, and tapped with NFC smartphones.
But why an implant?
To put it simply, it’s about management. Adam Sandler said it best when he recorded Phone, Wallet, Keys. Our products are well designed, frictionless, secure, always available, unforgettable identity solutions that upgrade your capabilities as a human being in ways wearables or tools you carry with you just can’t. Increasing utility, security, and convenience while reducing management burden – that’s what our implants can do for you.
What are the possibilities?
The primary uses of an RFID or NFC implant are to allow humans access to something (a home, computer, vehicle, electronic safe, business, etc.) or to share data with someone. An NFC implant can store data to be shared such as contact details, website information, bitcoin wallet addresses, and more!
