Tesla owner implants chip in hand to unlock EV

Dalaly is part of a group of 100 people using the chip for beta testing, before being released to the public.

Brandan Dalaly, a Tesla owner, has implanted a small chip into his right hand which allows him to lock and unlock his EV. The EV owner recently released a video on social media showing him getting a chip implanted in his hand and then using it to unlock his car.

The chip is said to be called Vivokey Apex and uses NFC technology. Dalaly is part of a group of 100 people using the chip for beta testing, before being released to the public. The company is said to have its own app store, allowing the chip to install multiple apps wirelessly - including the Tesla Key Card App, which is what Dalaly uses to unlock his car.

Dalaly stated that the chip and the implant cost him $400. He is said to have gotten it done by a professional piercer and was said to be similar to a subdermal piercing.

Reports suggest that this, however, isn't the first time the Tesla owner has gotten such a chip implanted. Dalaly is said to have another chip on his left hand, which acts as a key to his home and also stores all his important digital documents including his contact info, medical information, his portfolio and some others.
