We have people implanting RFID chips under their skin (the rest of us will be carrying RFID passports). A couple of years ago Microsoft has been awarded a patent for using human skin as a power conduit and data bus (read the news). Then, Korean researchers developed a chip that allows you to listen to music "using your forearm as the transmission wire for the audio signals" (CNet). See? Here is your technology for personally targeted audio ads.
Anyway, a few interesting pieces to read today:
- The Independent outlines the Bill Gates's version of the future (it's in paper-thin tablet devices).
- R.I.P Advertising from Club Amsterdam that was my inspiration for this post.
- An older review of Minority Report that ad geeks among you will enjoy.
