Tesla owner implants hand chip for beta testing

A man with a Tesla key implanted in his right hand is in that situation. After paying $400 for the chip and procedure, he's a beta tester.

Brandon Dalaly loves tech. He works in the industry and enjoys its cutting edge outside of work. His NFC implant can unlock and start his Tesla. Not quite.

This chip has more than Tesla functions, he said. Tesla key is an app. It's perfect for me because my phone's Bluetooth power management is so aggressive, he tweeted. The chip works like ApplePay, GPay, or a tap-to-pay credit card.

The chip allows Dalaly to use multiple apps with a single tap. It's not permanently attached to any vehicle, so he can update it if needed. This is his second chip.

A chip in his left hand opens his front door and stores his portfolio, contact info, and medical info. "I had my house key in my left hand and my car key in my right.

When it's approved, they can wirelessly activate my new credit card chip. Dalaly told Teslarati he can link a credit card and use it anywhere with tap-to-pay terminals.

The Twitter video makes the interaction look awkward, but he says it was filmed soon after the procedure. Due to hand swelling, the process took longer, but now it only takes a quick tap on the pillar.
