Incorporate RFID storage in medical devices

  [vote for,

You can (see link) have an operation which puts RFID storage under your skin. However, operations happen all the time which put stuff in your body - hip replacements, bone repairs, root canal fillings, etc. It seems a wasted opportunity not to incorporate a few GB of RFID-enabled storage with each of these. This could be used or banking/payment, for storing photos or diary information etc.

       Probably end up full of ransomware.

       Body cavity searches will take longer.   

       A police matron with an exacto knife and duct tape, will retrieve the RFID device.   

       Police flashlights will contain electronics detecting hardware.

       Much, much longer if 3 out of 6 keys required to unlock the data are all stored on 6 other people.

       This is all well and good until the police come and arrest your pancreas for downloading something illegal.

       True, pretty extreme way to archive your hipster porn.
