Steven Northam, 33, has had a chip which is about the size of a grain of rice implanted between his thumb and finger to replace car and house keys.
He think there’s nothing scary about a future where we’re all fitted with cyborg implants.
But his wife has refused to join in and still fumbles around for her car keys rather than joining Steven’s brave new world.
He’s so keen on implants that he’s offering an implantation services for British businesses and individuals.
He has teamed up with Dr Geoff Watson, a consultant anesthetist at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, to ensure the implant procedure is carried out to a medical standard.
Northam’s new company, BioTeq, is the first in the UK to offer human implantable technology via professional medical procedures.
He said the technology is similar to the microchips implanted inside cats and dogs and the implant procedure takes just 30 seconds.
It takes around a day for the locks to be changed on houses and cars at a price of about £300 for each.The married father of one now has technology fitted to both his home and his BMW Z4, which starts when his hand is on the wheel.

Meanwhile, his primary school teacher wife Becci, 30, must use a fob to get into their home as she is scared of needles.
The contactless chip is stored in a sealed glass tube, which has been put through heavy impact testing using pork meat to ensure there is virtually no chance of it breaking once implanted.
Mr Northam said the company is planning surgeries around the UK to get people and businesses using it.
The chip and the implant procedure will set people back between £230 and £260 per person, while complete offices where employees can access doors or use equipment will cost upwards of £5,000.
He said one business in Andover is now arranging for its six employees to have the technology fitted for work.
