Saudi Arabia has created a ‘killer chip’. It consists of a tiny GPS transceiver placed in a capsule, then inserted under a person’s skin – so that authorities can track him constantly.
Another model would have an extra function — a dose of cyanide to remotely kill the wearer if authorities deemed he’d become a public threat.
The inventor of the chip says it could be used to track terrorists, criminals, fugitives, illegal immigrants, political dissidents, domestic servants and foreigners overstaying their visas.
Apparently the inventor tried to have the chip patented in Germany, but was refused, becauseit would violate paragraph two of the German Patent Law which does not allow inventions that transgress public order or good morals.

These are excellent points you make.
I could not agree more with you on this.
My cynical side wonders if the exact same chip is being created in more democratic countries, behind closed doors. I’m sure it is. And G-d knows what else is being worked on…
Hmm… what could possibly go wrong?
1) wrong ID entered, wrong person killed.
2) right ID right persons killed, but unfortunately it was a hack attack by the enemy(tm).
3) ID entered at inopportune moment, driver or pilot crashes spectacularly in inconvenient location and way.
4) If the thing has a transmitter, it can be hijacked by anyone with minimal kit. (see 2)
5) Totally new opportunities for blackmail and assassination arise.
6) Genocide by hack attack also has it’s attractions in certain quarters.
And so on. That’s the problem with evil ideas, they are indeed evil… >-D
Indeed! Well put.
