Always losing or forgetting you Compass card?
This could be the answer!
A Sydney man has had an Opal card chip (the same equivalent as a Compass card) implanted under the skin in his hand!
Rather than finding his card and tapping on / off, he just uses his hand and says it is “so convenient and easy, why wouldn’t you do it?”.
The man found a piercing expert to insert the small chip into his hand for a low cost and says it took ‘under an hour’.
He can even uses the chip to top-up his Opal card balance by swiping his hand across his smartphone.
Would you ever consider doing this or is the Aussie just a little crazy?
