This tech company will start microchipping their workers

A tech company in Wisconsin is gearing up to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to employees — and more than 50 workers have already signed up so they can make in-house purchases, open doors and unlock office equipment.

Employees at Three Square Market in River Falls, which provides self-service kiosks for break rooms or micro-markets, are set to get implanted with a tiny chip that uses radio-frequency identification (RFID) to allow them to do a wide variety of tasks instantaneously.

“We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals,” according to a statement by the company’s CEO, Todd Westby.

“Eventually, this technology will become standardized, allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.”

The chip — about the size of a single grain of rice — can be implanted “within seconds” between the user’s thumb and forefinger. The program is optional for all employees, but the company said it expects more than 50 staffers to participate in the company’s inaugural “chip party” at its headquarters on Aug. 1.

Westby told KSTP he envisions people using the implanted microchip similar to how they use their phones to buy items.

“We’ll come up, scan the item,” Westby explained in front of a self-service kiosk in an office break room. “We’ll hit pay with a credit card, and it’s asking to swipe my proximity payment now. I’ll hold my hand up, just like the cellphone, and it will pay for my product.”

The microchip inside a user’s hand would function as his or her credit card. Each chip costs $300 and is being supplied by the company. The data stored on the chip is both encrypted and secure, said Westby, who said privacy concerns won’t be an issue.

“There’s no GPS tracking at all,” he told the station.

The company is partnering with Sweden-based BioHax International and its CEO, Jowan Osterland, a self-proclaimed “body hacker” who told the Associated Press in April that the process only lasts a few seconds and is usually painless.

“The next step for electronics is to move into the body,” Osterland said.

A Swedish startup hub called Epicenter, home to more than 100 firms and 2,000 employees, started implanting workers in January 2015. About 150 workers had them as of April, News.com.au reports.

The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance

You could use a simple portable "Fob" to do the same purpose, without having it injected under your skin....

Kraven: the company said it expects more than 50 staffers to participate in the company’s inaugural “chip party” at its headquarters on Aug. 1.

They are known as; Corporate Guinea Pigs: Poor Staff members...So Sad... Do it so others will feel its Safe Fun & Convenient... I bet the CEO will be the First in Line... (because its HIS cost savings idea or bonus action plan)

 

I assume the staffers have no idea of the capabilities of the chip,
or if it could be upgraded while still inserted under the skin.
I agree with the fobbing, but this is the start of a cashless
society with a complete record of the life of that person.

 

From there the possibility of a normal human life will be over.

I Don't disagree with you. Speaking of Cashless society. Have some Fun. Tell the Teller at your bank you want $9999.00 withdrawn from YOUR ACCOUNT-YOUR MONEY!  Watch the young teller's squirming expression, who starts looking around or calling her supervisor to help advise her how to proceed with your request.(policy procedures she must follow) She will Have to Ask You, "What are you going to Do with that Money"... (if over ten grand they have to notify a federal agency of the Amount of withdrawal over $10 grand & might do it for that $9999 amount), You will think; The Bank, Thinks I'm taking Their Money. That's all messed up!!!

Too bad no $500/$1000 dollar bills, money clip might not hold it all. Big Fed.Brother is Watching You...Like Never Before...The more Fed Control over the Banking system, the "Less Privacy Rights" you have as a Citizen of the USA.

Last 8 years have entrenched the Government's Oversight & Strong Hold, of your personal banking business. Its now Governments business.

If you don't believe me, Try It.. Have Some Fun....
