TiVo Files Patent For RFID Video Recoder Based On Implant Chip

Prison Planet | November 24 2005

This is absolutely key. We have been told all along that implantable 
chips will only ever be voluntary, yet through security justifications 
and popular culture they're sqeezing us in a vice like grip.

In the future it will be a case of no chip, no TV. They want to create 
a society of outcasts who refuse to take the chip and then can be 
demonized and blamed for society's ills.

They are relying on peer pressure to push part of the agenda through. 
Clubs across Europe are already chipping people to enter VIP areas.

On the security/political side of the equation, Tommy Thompson is 
touring the US advocating the loving security chip.

  TiVo Files Patent For RFID-Based Video Recorder

Information Week/Laurie Sullivan | November 24 2005

TiVo Inc. has filed a patent application to the U.S. Patent and 
Trademark Office earlier this month that suggests company inventors 
believe radio frequency identification (RFID) technology will become 
inserted into clothing, jewelry, key chains, and even under the skin in 
the body.

Whether TiVo actually decides to build in the feature, the patent is 
for a personal video recorder (PVR) that recognizes viewer preferences 
through an RFID chip embedded in clothing, jewelry or "inserted 
somewhere [in] the user's body."

The multimedia mobile personalization system would have a remote 
control that recognizes the viewer's RFID tag closest to the PVR. The 
remote control identifies and notifies the multimedia device through 
the RFID chip in the person's clothing or body to tailor the media 
content to their preferences.

The remote control device would identify and link the viewer to the 
system using an "RFID tag that is attached to a key ring, necklace, 
watch, in his wallet, or even a sub dermal tag inserted somewhere in 
the user's body." The remote control would detect the RFID tag in a 
limited radius so it wouldn't get confused by signals from others, the 
patent said.

Either broadcast or recorded television programs and music play lists 
stored on a local hard drive could be sorted, displayed or restricted, 
depending on the user identifier. Other methods of identifying the user 
are stated, too, such as computer vision recognition, biometric 
identification, and voice analysis.
