CEO & Founder
Adventure technologist and biohacker Amal Graafstra has always been interested in technology. In 2005 he became the world’s first double RFID implantee by implanting two small RFID transponders, one into each hand, which he still uses today to open doors, start vehicles, log into computers, and operate his implant activated smartgun. Since upgrading himself, he’s written a book called RFID Toys, been a TEDx speaker, appeared on a multitude of television and media programs, and been the subject of various documentaries. He’s also started a biohacking company in 2013 called Dangerous Things, which developed the world’s first and only NFC compliant implantable transponder. He is currently developing next generation implantable technologies and exploring the future of human augmentation as CEO of his new venture VivoKey Technologies.
