A self-declared 'cyborg' has injected microchips into his hands and wrists that act as the keys to his front door, motorcycle and even drawers in his home.
Canadian Russ Foxx, 36, has had over 100 body alterations ranging from ultraviolet tattoos to silicon horns implanted into his forehead.
Body - Modification - Artist - Uses - Chips
The body modification artist recently showcased some of the many uses for the chips that lie under his skin - including the ability to unlock a hand-made wooden concealment table 'hands free'.
While the modifications are extreme, Mr Foxx says 'anyone who carries keys' could benefit from the chip implants - which are no larger than a grain of rice.

The process of implanting the self-installed RFID (radio frequency identification) and NFC (near-field communication) transponders takes just a few seconds.
According to Mr Foxx, who is from Vancouver, Canada, the surgery is painless as the implants are just 2mm by 12mm in size.
Batteries - Chips - Induction - Proximity - Readers
Requiring no batteries or charging, the chips are powered by electromagnetic induction generated when in close enough proximity to their designated readers.
Once implanted, the glass-encased transponders cannot be seen, but can be felt underneath the skin.
Damage - Body
They are impervious to theft and are protected from any physical damage by the human body.
Mr Foxx has replaced the keys to the ignition of his motorcycle and front door with chips that work in cohesion with specialised readers.
Implants - Data - Business - Card
He also has implants that can store data for him 'like a business card'.
'I identify as a cyborg and I see these implants as a means to interact with the world around me - anyone who carries keys could benefit equally from having these implants,' he said.
