According to New Scientist, VIP members of Barcelona’s Baja Beach Club can now opt to get an RFID transmitter implanted in their arms for €125 (plus the €25 VIP membership fee). The transmitters — about the size of a grain of rice — emit a faint radio signal that can be detected by scanners at the door, allowing chipped members to skip the wait in line. They can also be associated with the member’s bank account to act as a debit card at the bar, eliminating the need to carry your wallet with you to the club.
