microchip implant

An RFID chip that contains a unique number for identifying animals. It is embedded under the skin or attached to the animal via an ear tag. In the 1990s, the technology became popular in zoos, but in 2001, the first commercial chip for people was introduced (see VeriChip). See RFID and NFC.
