Reader can’t wait for chip im­plant that will al­low peo­ple to buy goods

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

I would love to in­ject a chip which may con­tain all de­tails sim­i­lar to an Emi­rate ID (‘Ready for a cash in­jec­tion’, 7DAYS, Oct 18). I appreciate the in­no­va­tion that pay­ment could be done by this chip em­bed­ded in my hand. No need to carry around a huge purse with mul­ti­ple cards and hard cash. Peo­ple do forget their wal­lets fre­quently. It will be a rem­edy to walk around any­time. The only fear is of hacks un­less there is surety of good au­then­ti­ca­tion meth­ods. I have heard about such fea­tures in Hol­ly­wood movies and the army. Now it is a re­al­ity and when the com­mon man gets a chance to make use of this in­no­va­tion, it will be cool.
