British Scientist Implants Infected RFID Chip

Dr. Mark Gasson implanted a virus infected RFID chip into his hand. Atta boy! (Be sure to watch the video)

He was able to pass on the virus to an external control device in his trials, and he warns that the eventual real world implications could be far more dire. Gasson is particularly concerned when it comes to medical implants, which he says could potentially become infected by other implants in the body, and even pass on the "infection" to other people.

Virtual Land

On April 15, four Second Life property owners filed a class-action suit against Linden Lab, the online world's creator, alleging the company misled players into thinking they owned their virtual lands. People pay real dollars to Linden Lab for access to virtual land.
