This page contains information about
devices which can be implanted into a human body and used as part of a mind
control operation. As the page will make clear, such devices exist right
now in commercial form and have been researched for decades. This page
also contains items related to nanotechnology.
Digital Solutions will soon begin marketing an implantable tracking chip.
The company calls its product Digital
Angel, and includes a description of the system and patent
information on its web site.

of the S2K! biotelemetry page from the Google cache, and here are some other
from the book Journey Into Madness by Gordon Thomas. The
excerpts describe research into implants, and in particular some American war
crimes in Vietnam involving brain surgery and implants on prisoners of war.
In a closed-off compound at Bien Hoa Hospital,
the Agency team set to work with three Vietcong prisoners who had been selected
by the local station. Each man was anesthetized and the neurosurgeon, after he
had hinged back a flap in their skulls, implanted tine electrodes in each
When the prisoners regained consciousness, the behaviorists set to
work. The prisoners were placed in a room and given knives. Pressing the
control buttons on their handsets, the behaviorists tried to arouse their
subjects to violence.
For a whole week the doctors tried to make the men attack each
other. Baffled at their lack of success, the team flew back to Washington. As
previously arranged in the case of failure, while the physicians were still in
the air the prisoners were shot by Green Beret troopers and their bodies

dust’ could soon be spying on you,” describes dust-sized nanodevices
currently in development which can contain sensors and communicate data.
is an article from ABC News about smart
dust. The article is by Jack Smith and is from Nov. 1999. The
particular application being discussed involves minute airborne particles,
which the article reports might communicate information using small lasers.
Researchers at the University of California
have built a prototype the size of a matchbox that contains temperature,
barometric pressure and humidity sensors, and has the same computing power as
an IBM desktop did 15 years ago.
The new prototype is about the size of an aspirin tablet and will get even
“In the time frame of a year,” Kahn predicts, “we
should have out first working prototypes that are the size of a grain of
article in the IBM Systems Journal describes personal
area networks which allow data to be sent through the body. For
example, the authors describe “the business card handshake” whereby
skin contact between two people could automatically transfer data between their
personal data devices. While this is not specifically implant technology,
the technique could be used for data I/O between an implanted device and other

are some excerpts from the book As
Man Becomes Machine, The Evolution of the Cyborg by David Rorvik, written
in 1973. They are online at Peter Grafstrom’s site (and here is a local
copy). The excerpts contain descriptions of experiments in electronic
stimulation of the brain (ESB) as well as some of Rorvik’s speculations on the
future uses and abuses of such technology.

are some excerpts
from the book Wildlife Radio Tagging: Equipment, Field Techniques, and Data
Analysis, Academic Press, 1987. Even though the technology
involved is typically not the latest cutting edge, the book is interesting
because tagging and tracking techniques for animals are openly discussed,
whereas applications of those techniques to humans tend not to be. (No
one is surprised or doubtful when a scientist devotes himself or herself to
monitoring animals 24 hours a day to study their behavior — and gets
funding for it.)
