Game developer Zoe Quinn recently implanted an NFC chip in the space between her thumb and index finger. Appropriately enough, she’s since programmed the chip to send a link to her Humble Bundle page for Deus Ex, a popular shooter game about cyborgs. So, if you bump into her, you can tap your phone against the base of her thumb and get a free video game about human/robot hybrids. Here’s a video of the operation, which starts at about the four-minute mark. It’s not for the squeamish, and it certainly doesn’t help that she had to inject it herself with a giant needle.
