A man from Utah has put a computer chip in his hand which allows him to unlock his Tesla.

He uses the same technology used for Apple Pay but instead of a phone, it is installed in his hand.

The cybernetics enthusiast said his inspiration was ‘experimentation and curiosity’, according to Fox 13.
But he initially had difficulty finding someone who would carry out the procedure and even asked a veterinarian and a piercing artist.
He said for the first two implants, one of his family members did the operation which is carried out with a syringe.

But the Tesla key proved more difficult and he had it carried out at a piercing studio.
Workman also has a magnet implanted in his left hand for magic tricks.
He says he next intends to put a chip in his hand which will let him pay for things without having to carry a credit card or phone.
