Bill Ray reported on The Register in January 2007 that a Saint Louis company known as Somark Innovations has successfully tested a new kind of radio frequency identification (RFID) medium. An identification number can be stored in a tattoo that is injected from an array of needles onto animals such as cows, mice and rats.
The RFID’s number can then be read from more than a meter away using a proprietary high frequency reader.
Existing tags are either expensive or can be torn out from animals.
Somark’s next market after animals will be to identify military personnel, meaning the tattoo also works on humans.
Again as evidenced, the last days are truly here.
“And it puts under compulsion all persons, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they should give these a mark in their right hand or upon their forehead, and that nobody might be able to buy or sell except a person having the mark, the name of the wild beast or the number of its name. Here is where wisdom comes in: Let the one that has intelligence calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is a manâ€™s number; and its number is six hundred and sixty-six.” – Revelation 13:16-18, New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
