The redesigned Tesla Model 3 chip that can be placed under the arm
Tesla is not supplied with a serial key, although you can buy one at an additional cost. Instead, you have two options: use a RFID card, which unlocks the car by placing it in the part that separates the driver's door from the passenger's one behind, or using the mobile with the application. The card, which has a chip and a copper filament, can be arranged in a somewhat different way to continue to work, and even implant it in your arm.
That's what a software engineer and youtuber called Friend DD, who already had an RFID tag on his arm to open the door of the house or for a cell phone to open his website when scanning. When he booked his 3 Tesla model, he realized that he could do the same with the car. When he received it, he tried to transfer the information on the chip that he already owned, but in the impossibility of doing so, the only solution was to reopen it and to l & # 39; insert.
To do this, he dissolved the card with acetone and inserted it into a biopolymer capsule that he then inserted into his forearm by going to a specialized clinic. Friend DD has uploaded a video of the process, which you can see below. Eye, there is blood from the minute 1:05, because we see how we make the incision with a tube and we introduce the chip.
It is interesting to note that in the video, the chip does not work, but in principle, it should work without problems. The copper antenna is usually needed to read the chip, but as we see in the second 0:22, the antenna has been redesigned to take up less space.
Although it is not visible in the video, the chip works, as it confirmed on Twitter, although the range is much smaller than that of the card: it is only 3 cm, which is enough for Unlock the car without having to reach the body.
The article mentioned that I had not shown the implant working with my car. The area of the arm is inflamed and swollen just after implantation of the chip. My friend is recording my videos and we did not have time to film the implant together with Tesla this week because I am @defcon ! pic.twitter.com/AkcrIwI8DD

Thanks to that, you will never forget the car key, but thankfully, there are other less "invasive" methods with the human body if we want to carry the car key always above, like a car. RFID ring May we always carry in hand.
