Man Gets Microchips Implanted in Hand to Access Tesla Model 3
This is common currency in science fiction lore, but in the real world, it’s still pretty novel. At the same time, there’s an air of inevitability to it. We’re talking about the implanting of microchips under the skin of humans to permit access to a car and its functions. In the case before us, the car is a Tesla Model 3, its owner a participant in a new test study of the microchip technology.
The chips also allow for storing cryptocurrencies and data. The participant is 39-year-old Brandon Dalaly, part of a test group of around 100 people, and the chips also give him access to his home and to his medical card.
The microchips are manufactured by the Vivokey group, as reported by Insideevs. They are coated with biocompatible substances and are encapsulated in body tissue shortly after implantation.

Dalaly explained to Teslarati how the capabilities of the chips are constantly evolving with new downloadable features (via Teslarati): “The company that put this together literally has its own app store where you can wirelessly install apps into your body with these chips. And one of the apps just happened to be a Tesla key card. So that was the first app I installed on it because I have a Tesla and now I use that as my key when my Bluetooth key fails or I don’t have my key card. You just use your hand.”Read more
