An edgy alternative lifestyle Australian has quite the party trick in one of his hands, thanks to an embedded NFC chip that lets him access his local public transport system with a wave of a hand; like a jedi getting somewhere by bus because their hoverspeeder is in for its MOT.
The chip has been stuck into the hand of a man who's changed his name to Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow-Meow for some equally indiscernible reason, with the Opal card -- Sydney's equivalent of London's contactless Oyster card -- cut down so that only the important functional bit remains in a 10mm x 6mm square that's now under his skin.
