G’Day World #325 – Jonathan Oxer

This is the longer audio piece from my chat with Jonathan Oxer. Jonathan has an RFID chip embedded in his arm which he can use to operate electronic devices in his house. Why? Listen and find out. If you haven’t yet seen the video to go with it, it’s here.

Keep up to date with Jon’s experimentation on his blog.

As a result of all the media interest in his high-tech home, Jonathan is set to host a new TV show called SuperHouse which will go to air later this year. Check out www.superhouse.tv to find out more.

The music on today’s show is “Demon Seed” from the new Nine Inch Nails album “THE SLIP“, which is licensed under a creative commons attribution non-commercial share alike license.

One thought on “G’Day World #325 – Jonathan Oxer

  1. I had a look at the short video of this, and for opening the door, there are many more ways of doing this than embedding a chip in your arm. What about a finger vein reader? I suppose since he built his own RFID readers that it’s probably mostly about the cost of the devices.
