So you tend to forget data, passwords or information you need? Do you want more security for your devices? You can (for some time now) use an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device), similar to those used for dogs or cats.

It is a trend now, as more than 50,000 people worldwide have implanted one or more chips for a variety of uses. Of course, the most important feature is that you can’t really loose it. Implant one in your hand or arm and open your apartment or office door, garage or safety box or keep your valuable information with you at all times. Especially medical information like bracelets or cards have.

Let us go fast in the future. Employees, children or convicts could be implanted such chips for purposes of tracking, gathering information and control. One example from the present is a Swedish office building that offered employees a possibility to implant chips under their skin to access and more in the building.

Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a sandwich? We’re all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach – a chip under the skin.

In the past years, in the United States, a series of local legislatures looked at the (future) issue of mandatory implants and California, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, prohibit such mandatory use of chips for employees. Some might question what is the difference between an implanted chip and the tracking through our phones.

We want to be able to understand this technology before big corporates and big government come to us and say everyone should get chipped – the tax authority chip, the Google or Facebook chip. Hannes Sjoblad, Swedish Biohacking Group
