The Digital Angel
is a device
for tracking any human
, and through the use of biosensors
determine the location
and medical condition
of that being.
The device is a product of the Applied Digital Solutions company and is being marketed as a device "to make the world a little safer". It is currently available in the form of a watch like device, pager, and most importantly from a personal freedom point of view, an implantable chip.
If one can see past the corporate schmooze of the Digital Angel corporation, you will see that this device serves as a tool of the oppressor, when you consider such bodies as Echelon, the real truth behind the apparent benefits of such as device become blurred as you realise that anybody within the catchment area of Echelon can be monitored.
