But letâ€™s not stop there.Â My boss at the Sleepy Hollow Public Library often said, “Iâ€™d forget my head if it werenâ€™t attached.”Â
Well, why not boil all this ID-specific information down to one barcode and have it tattooedâ€”in ink visible only under ultraviolet lightâ€”on our foreheads?Â With the same data on an RFID tag we could wear as an earring?Â Sure, youâ€™d have to stick your head out the window when you went through a Sunpass toll booth.Â But thatâ€™s a small price to pay for overall annoyance reduction.
Think about it. Youâ€™d look perfectly normal. (Well, as normal as you ever look. And itâ€™s not your fault that your mom dresses you funny.)Â But you could go anywhere and use anything, so long as you brought your head along.Â It would be like the old days, when all your friends recognized you on sight.Â Even your imaginary friends.Â Only now it would be computers whoâ€™d be saying, “Hey!Â Que pasa?Â Whazzup?”Â (Theyâ€™d actually say “1011010011010â€¦!”Â But I thought it would be best to translate.)Â And you could leave your billfold at home.
This is not yet a service TBLC is offering. But if thereâ€™s enough demandâ€¦.
