Science fiction writer Elizabeth Moon has proposed giving everyone a permanently attached barcode at birth to provide a fast, easy, inexpensive way to identify people. Giving everyone a barcode would grant many advantages. Weapons systems could record the code of the user and note who fired each shot. Soldiers would be able to easily differentiate combatants from civilians. Both anonymity and mistaken identity would be eliminated. Source: BBC
