RF Implants

RF Tags for Breast Implants
  [vote for,

Why not add the self-powered RF id tags to breast implants? That way, anyone out on a date could pass a scanner near the breasts in question and learn: 1)if they were real or implants, and possibly 2) who did the surgery.

       A lot of silicon implants are already chip tagged with manufacturer details apparently (I saw this on one of Channel 5's highbrow 'educational' programs). No mention of the surgeon though.

       Humph, can't believe someone's assumed the "Librarian" moniker.

       Useful for other people, but why would the person with the implants want one? Would you end up with people paying premium prices for untagged implants?   

       "Either these are real, or they were expensive. And they don't look expensive..."   

       And how do you propose to get a scanner near the breasts without the person noticing?

       Sadie, me old chum, that's the fun part, isn't it?

       Why not?   

       1. A person who wants breast implants would not want them to be detectable, therefore would not have the surgery done by a doctor who used RF tags.
2. It's a rather shallow purpose, don't you think? What would you do with this information? What does it matter?
3. I'm sure there are severe health risks involved.
4. Can you elaborate on this "self-powered" technique? You may have solved the world's energy issues.

       Similarly, rfid tag viagra pills so that a quick scan will let you know if the erection is authentic.

       Would be tough working at the Wall-mart and having your implants added to the bills of those your checking out.   

       You end fired or forced to wear an aluminum shielding bra.
