Human Microchipping is Taking Off

human-microchipping-taking-off

Human microchipping is taking off in a big way right now. Sweden were the first country to implement the technology by giving the option to be microchipped to pay for train fare by RFID. The service seemed to be popular among commuters who opted to pay electronically by radio frequency via the microchip, rather than have to carry a card!

Swedish startup hub Epicenter decided to microchip workers by using a syringe device to insert a chip the size of a grain of rice into the hand. It can then be used as a swipe card for opening doors, operating printers, accessing specific areas and even ordering drinks. They began the process in 2015 and so far out of 2,000 staff members, 150 have opted to use the microchipping method.

Obviously there are a number of concerns for people, such as privacy, security and movement tracking. There are also concerns over having a foreign object inserted into the body.

However, there are some great advantages involved on the upside. You could eventually be microchipped to avoid using a credit card or carrying cash, by means of payment – saves hassle when shopping. Another advantage could be the passport control service where you would no longer be required to carry a passport when travelling. Then the medical end of things, where you can have all your medical information stored in case of an emergency.

Alas, there are pros and cons involved. Especially when you consider the computer age and robots being so advanced. Is it really safe to assume that it is incorruptible?

Do we mind our movements being tracked at all times and our every step being traced? Will you feel like Big Brother is watching at all times? I would love to hear your views on the subject so feel free to comment on your thoughts below.
