Killer Chip' tracks humans, releases poison


You can run, but you cannot hide ... and if you try, one push of a button will cause a lethal poison to immediately begin flowing through your body

.

That's the Orwellian future a Saudi inventor was seeking to bring to Germany until that nation's patent office announced last week it was rejecting his request to patent what has been dubbed the "Killer Chip."

The tiny semiconductor device is intended to be surgically implanted or injected into the body, according to the patent application, for the purpose of tracking

visitors from other nations by global-positioning satellites and preventing them from overstaying their visas.
