On the news tonight was a guy who had inserted a microchip into his arm to gain instant access into his house sans keys — look Mum no hands. Which brings to mind the story of Logan's Run, written by William Nolan and George Clayton Johnson and released on the big screen in 1976. The tagline to the film was 'welcome to the 23rd century', but it seems microchip man has moved the plot forward a little. The characters in Logan's Run had their own kind of microchip system — a palm flower, or cystal embedded in their palm — that let officials know when residents turned 21. (Unfortunately there was no room in this futuristic world for anyone over 21, if you get my drift.)
Hope microchip man hasn't given anyone any ideas.
The book spawned a film, TV series, comic strip, a soundtrack, alternative reality game and aborted attempts at a film remake.
I was trying to think of other stories that had the whole microchip in the body thing going, but couldn't think of any. Can anyone help me out?
