Transport authorities in New South Wales have threatened to deactivate an Opal card that has been implanted in a Sydney man's hand.

Sydney bio-hacker Meow-Ludo Disco Gamma Meow-Meow — his actual name — had the near-field communication (NFC) chip from an Opal card cut out and encased in a bio-compatible plastic.

The device was then implanted under the skin in his left hand, allowing him to "tap on" by waving his hand over the readers on the city's ferries, buses and trains.

In a statement, Transport for NSW said it did not encourage such experimentation.
