Microchipped Humans

Could implanting an intelligent microchip the size of a grain of rice into your body change the way you start a car, send information to a computer or phone, or even help in a medical emergency? Carte Blanche meets the young South African engineers who implanted these devices beneath their skin ‘for fun’ and to test the potential for this technology to change everyday life.
