There already exist quite a few people that have an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) chips implanted in their bodies. The uses for such technology are many, but could it work well as a virtual wallet?
It’s fascinating to look back on earlier works of science fiction and see what kinds of outlandish predictions they made for the future, from flying cars to robot servants. It’s even more fascinating to look back on this art and see which predictions actually came true, such as Star Trek’s proto cell phones.

There already exist quite a few people that have an RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) chips implanted in their bodies. These allow them to communicate with electronic devices to open doors, unlock machines, and the like. These chips are mainly NFC (Near-Field Communication), meaning that they only work in a short range, typically within a few feet.
