The futurists placing technology in the palm of their hands by installing microchips

A Sydney woman has undergone a procedure which may become commonplace in the future - having two microchip implants inserted into her hands in an attempt to control some electronic devices.

Futurist Shanti Korporaal, who got "chipped" at the end of May, is using the technology to essentially make life easier and possibly even more secure.

Ms Korporaal told she now doesn't have to carry keys or cards to get into her vehicle or workplace.

A video which was uploaded to the Future Sumo YouTube account earlier this week shows Ms Korporaal using her hands to swipe and gain access into a car park and into a another secure area in a building though a door.

Ms Korporaal told, "You could set up your life so you never have to worry about any password or PINs."

She said she hoped one day she won't need cards or a wallet to pay for things with the technology being the same as Paypass.

It's claimed the chips can contain complex information, such a medical data or can transfer contact information to mobile devices, reports.

Pioneer to the technology Amal Graafstra spoke with Sunrise about his own implants on Thursday morning.

Mr Graafstra has four chips, two of which were reportedly implanted in 2005 and two he said are protoypes.

He said he uses his chips to get into doors at his home and waves his hands in front of the keyboard of his computer to log in.

Mr Graafstra said the procedure to insert a chip is quick and takes about 30 seconds.

Showing the ejector used to insert the technology he said, "We put it between the index and thumb metacarpal, just right in there, eject it and that's it."

Ms Korporaal and her husband reportedly set up a service to distribute the technology known as Chip My Life, which specialises in selling RFID and NFC technology.

The implant technology costs between $80 and $140, according to

Yahoo7 News has attempted to contact Ms Korporaal for further comment about the technology and her experience with the procedure.
