Soon there may come a day when the world won’t even need keys to unlock the whip. As a matter of fact, for one man, that day has already arrived.
According to CNN, a Detroit, MI, man can now unlock his Tesla without a key due to a chip that has been implanted into his arm.
Yes, you read that correctly. Brandon Dalaly, took his love for tech to the next level by agreeing to have the piece of technology installed into his body.

No Key, No Problem
“You can’t lose your hand, so you’ll always have a way of getting in your car,” Dalaly said, explaining what led him to make the decision.
Not only does the chip unlock his Tesla, but it also has the functionality to unlock the door to his home. What’s more, it also serves as a digital storage place for his contact and medical information, including his COVID-19 vaccine card.
“So after that was inserted and the swelling went down, I’m able to open up the front and back door of my house,” Dalaly shared. “I can walk up to people and have them turn their phone to my hand and instantly transfer my contact information in my portfolio, my Covid vaccine card.”
The Price Tag
After purchasing the chips, he went to a local tattoo shop and had it installed.
“The chips themselves are around $200 to $300 and the install is only about $100 because you can go to a local piercing shop who will agree to do the installation,” he explained, according to reports. “All the programming and coding putting the apps on the chips — that’s all done by me.”
According to Fox 2 Detroit, Dalaly wouldn’t mind if the chip were to get Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s attention.
