The outbreak of avian flu in 2005 has left the whole world with a lingering fear. Recently, the U.S. company Digital Angel has used its RFID (radio frequency identification technology) products to improve human ability to prevent the flu.
The company announced that its "bio-temperature RFID chip" and the corresponding identification system will soon be available, mainly for the global bird market, the initial focus of service area is the "bird flu" most serious in Asia.
This versatile identification system consists of a temperature sensor chip that can be implanted into an organism and a corresponding identification and temperature scanner that can identify abnormal temperature rise in poultry. This makes it possible to quickly identify and control outbreaks of avian influenza or other bird diseases. So far, Digital Angel has been working to promote RFID chips in pet and horse markets. In other livestock *, such as cattle and pigs, the application of disease prevention is still in the experimental stage. "Disease and bioterrorism are increasingly threatening the safety of the global food supply chain and the health of livestock and humans," said Kevin McGrath, president of Digital Angels. Our company has already targeted its own system in these new applications.
As early as the 1980s, William Gibson, the father of Cyberpunk, had fabricated a human-implantable sensor chip in his novel Neuromancer. Of course, this chip not only monitors body temperature, but also includes all the senses of the whole body.

It looks like a painkiller. The hand inserted in the pocket of the pink raincoat kept stretching and relaxing. It took him a few seconds to respond. The strange feeling was that those blades were stretched out and retracted.
