SJ Rail, the Swedish train operator, announced that around 100 people were using microchips to pay for their journey. Commuters with a microchip in their hand are able to have their ticket loaded directly onto the device.
The train conductor can then read the chip with a smartphone to confirm the passenger has paid for their journey. This was one of the most widespread and mainstream uses of the technology and has seen it be adopted by a plethora of forward-thinking companies.
Microchipping has even been adopted by professional social media platform LinkedI. Szilvia Varszegi, 28, said the chip 'basically solves my problems'.
Touching an event attendee's smartphone will allow the information to be transferred without the need for typing.
