Chips Implanted For Love

Jennifer Tomblin and Amal Graafstra have made the most modern declaration of their affection for each other, with implanted electronic chips that allow them unfettered access to each other's lives.

It's called Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID. Both have had a small electronic chip embedded under their skin that grants access to each other's front doors and home computers.

The system works like a key-card. A simple swipe of the wrist across an electronic sensor, and they're in.

The couple sees the decision as a modern declaration of love that also happens to be functional.

The chip itself is just two millimeters by 12 millimetres, and can be inserted under the skin with an injection needle.

The chips are surprisingly inexpensive, not much more than a few U.S. dollars, and can easily be ordered online.

Like a tattoo, Tomblin said, it's a unique way of connecting with her significant other. | Couple's implant chips take love to a new level
