He’ll never misplace his car keys

Fellow named Ben Thompson can start his car using an RFID “key.”

Big deal, you say? Remote car starters were on the market long before anyone could even spell RFID.

Well, Thompson’s “key” is implanted in his hand. See for yourself.

Seems extreme. And I’m guessing he’s not the kind of guy who always has to be driving the latest model.
