Corona Crime: how DNA Tabs are coming true

Writing about a post-coronavirus world, I’m finding that many of my worst predictions about the future are already coming true.  Why a chip to use a photocopier could become much worse.

I’ve written before about my fears that if I don’t publish my novels soon, they’ll come true.

This is one of the reasons I want to publish Corona Crime.

When I wrote Corona Crime, I imagined that before long, every human would be chipped at birth; that such chips would be linked to your DNA (to prevent transplants); and that they would communicate with a central database (the Federal Unitary Control Computer) a thousand times a second to confirm your location and what you were up to.

Now I find that similar chips – minus the DNA, so far – are being used to allow staff in Sweden to use the photocopier: http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-31042477.  No more painful than an injection, reports the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones.

Better get ready, guys.  They started with cats and dogs.  Soon they’ll be coming for you.
