I wanna get my forehead implanted so I just have to headbut any terminal to pay. People will think I’m magic.
They’ll think you’re something, not sure if “magic” is the word…
Like a Glasgow Tap’n’Go?

No contactless terminals were harmed during the payment via head of @NetentSam

What if someone tries to steal your head when you’re out for a walk?
Would you keep getting implants each time you needed to replace your card so that your head will eventually become like Kryten off Red Dwarf?
Could always just stash a contactless debit card in your face mask and achieve sorta the same result.

would just need to stick a chip and a pin in each eye to verify.
I remember these - stick to the back of your phone and psuedo contactless via device.
In fact, if offered these, it’d kill the Garmin/Fitbit/Samsung Pay issue dead.

You can get NFC implants nowadays to power your smart home:
Be a pain if you faceplant the pin terminal, then it asks you to insert your card.
Cashier in the Co-op Bank restaurant in 2015 thought I had magic cufflinks. Bpay band was hidden under my shirt sleeve.
The vet. The tags you put in a cat are technically just the same as our door fobs at work.
But no use for payments.
