I therefore wanted an inexpensive cloner, with decent read range and a simple user interface. It should be easy to build, and it should not require a PC to operate. This will make it easy for anyone to clone a Verichip themself, without spending a lot of money. It’s also a neat demonstration of just how much a low-end microcontroller’s peripherals can be twisted to do.

This device can read and replay a Verichip’s ID. If you can get the antenna close to your victim’s shoulder, then your circuit board is electrically indistinguishable from their implanted chip forever after. Full schematics and documentation are given below.

The total parts cost is under twenty dollars, and you can get everything except the antenna from Digikey. The antenna must be wound on a ferrite rod, of the type available from CWS Bytemark and others.

The utility of this device is limited, because the Verichip is not heavily deployed. As of this writing, you can use your cloner to:

enter a secure government facility in Mexico
buy yourself free drinks at the Baja Beach Club
break in to a security company in Ohio
