Did Anyone Know That There's A Company In Sweden That Puts Microchips In Their Employees?

Submitted by: fancylad 7 months ago in Tech


Instead of a keycard or ID, this company slips chips under their worker's skin to 'save time' on things like getting in and out of their building, getting into locked rooms, unlocking one's bike, even using the office copy machine. 

So far, it's elective. Bad precedent, man. Bad precedent.

Here's an online conspiracy theorist's take on the matter...

Yup, one step closer to the 666. Stunning how that particularly weird part of the Bible seems to be fortelling things that are just now going on.

16And the second beast required all people small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark — the name of the beast or the number of its name.18Here is a call for wisdom: Let the one who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and that number is six hundred sixty-six.…


Just sayin... 
The US Army thought of (and tested) invisible tattoos to replace dog-tags. On the forehead or one or both hands...
You could scan them of course.

After working security for a few years, I love the idea of giving people key cards they can't lose/misplace.

I can see on one side where it would be useful. I can see on the other where people will have problems with it.

If it's elective, then not any of my business.

megrendel srsly. This is nothing compared to the sort of information you're giving out just walking around with a phone in your pocket. There are real limitations on how far these tags can communicate, provides no more information to your employer than if you'd been using an ID card to swipe doors.
