I sometimes feel disconnected when I misplace my phone. But what if we didn't carry our smart technology - what if it were implanted inside us?

A small group of Swedish bio-hackers have implanted radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips in their hands. Many more people are trying out implanted technology worldwide. The implants could open doors, unlock phones or interact with all kinds of wireless devices. I think it's exciting. How will our lives change when technology is literally a part of us?
