Jon Oxer, who has been labeled “Australia’s geekiest geek” by a Sydney newspaper, has made some adjustments to his car. Most are not that surprising for a man who clearly takes his technology seriously: 24-hour internet access in Mazda RX-8 might be unusual, but not that extreme. The remote ignition controlled via his iPod Touch and iPhone could be considered downright handy.
Then there is the keyless entry option. Oxer has installed an RFID reader on the window of his car which is interfaced to the car’s security system. This enables him to unlock his car with the RFID tag he has had implanted in his left arm.
Oxer has also modified his house to take advantage of the tag, which operates door locks and other features. The tag was implanted via a tool usually found in veterinary clinics.
