The German Patent office has rejected an application filed by a Saudi national to patent a microchip device which, linked to GPS, will continually track the location of the implantee. The device, according to the application filed, is specifically meant for “ people sought by security forces” including fugitives from justice, terrorists, illegal immigrants, criminals, political opponents, defectors, domestic help”, as well as people who overstay their visas – such as people “who don't return home from pilgrimages,"
In case such people become security risk, the Saudi inventor also makes provision for a model B of the device that could remotely release poison to "eliminate" the individual. This is no fiction, and it demonstrates not only the present capabilities achievable by microchip implants, but also the thinking of people developing the technology.
It is not much relief learning that the German Patent and Trademark Office rejected the request, since, according to a spokeswoman of the office, Stephanie Kruger, it is quite likely that this inventor, like most others, also made similar applications in several countries.
And according to Worldnetdaily, “That leaves open the possibility the Saudi inventor will find success in another country.”
