“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17
Students of bible prophecy have long speculated when the technology would get to the point where the Mark of the Beast implant, as described in Revelation 13, could be internally charged by the human body.
That day just arrived.
Daily Mail UK: Forget carrying around a charger – you next mobile could be powered by the beating of your heart, researchers have revealed.
A team of US and Chinese researchers has revealed a tint implantable battery they have used to power a pacemaker. It converts the constant movement of organs such as the heart, lungs and diaphragm into energy.

The thin, flexible mechanical energy harvester has been tested on cows – and found to produce enough power to run a pacemaker
It the future, they say, it could be used to power a range of gadgets. The tiny piezoelectric power plants are comprised of lead zirconate titanate nanoribbons, housed in biocompatible plastic.
How It Works: The small strip converts the constant movement of organs such as the heart, lungs and diaphragm into energy. The tiny piezoelectric power plants are comprised of lead zirconate titanate nanoribbons, housed in biocompatible plastic. There’s also an integrated rectifier that converts the electric signal and a tiny rechargeable battery, all encased in the same plastic. To produce more power, multiple units could be placed on an organ, the team believe.
‘Heart rate monitors, pacemakers, cardioverter-defibrillators, and neural stimulators constitute broad classes of electronic implants that rely on battery power for operation,’ the team wrote

‘Means for harvesting power directly from natural processes of the body represent attractive alternatives for these and future types of biomedical devices.

‘Here we demonstrate a complete, flexible, and integrated system that is capable of harvesting and storing energy from the natural contractile and relaxation motions of the heart, lung, and diaphragm at levels that meet requirements for practical applications.’ source – Daily Mail

Biometric Technology Will Make Huge Advances In 2014

The onslaught of technological coolness is dazzling, mind-boggling even. Everywhere you look there are apps and wearable devices that sync up to the cloud, and everyone is adopting them like crazy. George Orwell, in all his 1984 glory, could not have envisioned the One World Government curve ball that this would engender.
We no longer have to worry about the government creating a file on us, we are making our own with every post, pic and #hashtag we launch out into the cybersphere. And when the Mark of the Beast arrives, people will jump to adopt that one as well.
Good thing that we won’t be here for that!
CS Monitor: Apple’s new iPhone 5S comes with the company’s first fingerprint scanner. A simple stamp of your thumb can now unlock the phone or confirm online purchases. No passwords are required.
While Apple fans have long awaited this big update, so has another group: the biometrics industry. Sensor companies have been wishing for a major player to swoop in, show how far the technology has advanced, and persuade shoppers that biometrics can be cool.

With each passing day, we are being monitored, tagged and branded like cattle in the stockyard.
“Many think that the iPhone 5S is a tipping point for consumers,” says Adam Vrankulj, editor of the industry news outlet Biometric Update. After Apple purchased fingerprint-sensor company AuthenTec for $350 million in 2012, the stock price of several similar firms more than doubled.
Fingerprint sensors have come a long way since 2002, when researchers found a way to trick high-end scanners with fake gelatin fingers. Today’s technology not only reads the tiny ridge patterns, but some can also look at blood flow and vein patterns underneath the skin.
Plus, we now know that fingerprints and irises are not people’s only unique features. Scientists have devised ways to identify humans by the shape of their ears, kneecaps, and even their bottoms. A team at the Advanced Institute of Industrial Technology in Tokyo designed its rump sensor as an anti-theft measure for cars. The group claims that these prototype seats can recognize the owner’s posterior with 98 percent accuracy.
Canadian firm Bionym listens to people’s heart rhythms. While a human heart pounds at different tempos throughout the day, each person has a unique overall pattern, one based on the size and position of the heart within the body. The company’s Nymi bracelet uses electrocardiogram technology to read this heart rhythm and confirm the wearer’s identity.
Of course, biometric scanners are still far from perfect. The iPhone reportedly stumbles when it comes to wet or sweaty fingers. Mr. Vrankulj says the facial recognition software in his Android phone has a hard time with glasses and his newly grown beard – not to mention the false positives from simply holding up an image of the owner’s face.
Some have also voiced concerns about government agencies demanding the fingerprints of certain customers. Apple says such seizures would be impossible. The encrypted data stays locked up within the device, not on any of Apple’s servers. source – CS Monitor

Robots Are The Not-Too-Distant Future Of War

The need for humans to participate in armed conflicts could soon be over. The next generation of military hardware might be able to think and act for itself.

Military hardware will soon consist of “autonomous robots that know neither pity nor fear” — quite a step up from the current generation of UAVs and drones operated by humans from the safety of military bases hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away.

Ever since drones such as the Predator were prepared and armed for use in Iraq and Afghanistan in the early 2000s, stealth weapons have played a key role in the West’s “War on Terror.” It was a Predator drone that located Osama Bin Laden in 2011, and it was a Predator drone that launched the missile attack earlier this month that killed Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud. The drones have clocked more than 200,000 hours of flying time in Afghanistan since their inception.

Drone operators work in a safe environment, sometimes in a completely different country to the one that the aircraft flies in. They make judgment calls based on the situation they see on the computer screen in front of them. The success of the program has meant that the US Air Force is training more people to fly drones than it is conventional aircraft.

The legal battle over whether drones such as the Predator and the Reaper contravene international law is still raging. The basis of the argument against their use is that actions viewed thousands of miles away on a computer screen can be misinterpreted and the response could have severe consequences. That legal battle could get a whole lot tougher with the next generation.

Future weapons will remove the human element from the equation completely; they will be able to engage targets by themselves, maximizing destruction. They will represent the age-old saying: “Shoot first, ask questions later.”

Obama administration to review facial recognition technology

End Time Headlines
The Obama administration on Tuesday said it plans to review the privacy implications of facial recognition technology. Lawmakers and privacy advocates have expressed fears that tech companies and government agencies are using facial recognition technologies to track people, often without their knowledge. The Commerce Department said it recognizes those concerns and will work with tech groups, privacy advocates and online advertising trade associations to identify them. “Facial recognition technology has the potential to improve services for consumers, support innovation by businesses, and affect identification and authentication online and offline,” said Larry Strickling, the administrator of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). “However, the technology poses distinct consumer privacy challenges … and the importance of securing faceprints and ensuring consumers’ appropriate control over their data is clear,” he said. In February 2012, the Obama administration tasked the NTIA with bringing together tech companies, advertising firms and advocacy groups to work on digital privacy issues. The agency completed an 18-month review of mobile app privacy policies and will turn to facial recognition technology in early 2014. Strickling said the discussions “could include an examination of the privacy risks associated with the use of photo databases in stores and other commercial settings and face prints as a unique biometric identifier.” More
