A Tesla Model 3 owner has removed the RFID chip from the vehicle’s keycard and implanted it in her arm.
The Model 3 doesn’t have a normal car key, instead it’s unlocked with a smartphone app or a keycard. Amie DD, a software engineer, decided that wasn’t convenient enough.
She first tried to port Tesla’s software to a chip she implanted years ago to unlock the door to her home. When that attempt wasn’t successful, she dissolved the keycard using acetone, encased it in a biopolymer, and implanted it in her forearm. The whole process was documented on Hackaday.
