A Wisconsin company called Three Square Market is going to offer employees implantable chips to open doors, buy snacks, log in to computers, and use office equipment like copy machines. Participating employees will have the chips, which use near field communication (NFC) technology, implanted between their thumb and forefinger. It’s an extension of the long-running implantable RFID chip business, based on a partnership with Swedish company Biohax International. The vending kiosk company, also known as 32M, will “chip” employees at a party on August 1st. (According to an email to The Verge, chips and salsa will be served as snacks.) Around 50 people are supposedly getting the optional implants.
NFC chips are already used in a couple of workplaces in Europe; The Los Angeles Times reported on startup workspace Epicenter’s chip program earlier this year. In the US, installing them is also a form of simple biohacking. They’re essentially an extension of the chips you’d find in contactless smart cards or microchipped pets: passive devices that store very small amounts of information. A Swedish rail company also lets people use implants as a substitute for fare cards. 32M CEO Todd Westby is clearly trying to head off misunderstandings and paranoia by saying that they contain “no GPS tracking at all” — because again, it’s comparable to an office keycard here.
Chip implants are far from common, and although Westby speculates on a future where RFID chip technology is used for “your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities,” a lot of people might prefer those chips in the form of jewelry or a smartphone component. In an office environment, employers can already monitor most of the data that they could collect through these chips, but in a larger environment, a device you couldn’t easily remove could raise privacy concerns. Still, this is a good sign for biohacking enthusiasts who are already interested in the tech; I have an NFC chip, for example, that I’ve been trying fruitlessly to use as an office keycard for years. The US has also been lagging behind Europe on adopting this kind of tech, so it’s cool to see it make its way to an American company — even if it’s mostly an interesting experiment on both continents.
No, it's not a compulsory thing. They'd get protest and resistance. This is how they get it through; they make it "optional". You "choose" to do it, and soon enough those who chose not play along will be the minority, the outsiders, the Tin-Hat brigade.
Welcome to 2030. You are being patterned for data storage.
"Jack" just sent me an Email on this subject, and as usual rather Biblical and apocalyptic in tone, not the kinda thing I usually publish, but I'll share my response to him:
No way I am getting that done. Simple as that. And you are only going to see more and more of this unfortunately.
That make two of us GH. Anyone else?
Re: INTRODUCTION OF IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIPS POLL
Many thanks for comments. The Swedish Company in Stockholm that implanted its employees with microchips in February 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6m8dDkOv51 was to “test the water” for Europe, and now in less than a weeks time, this new company in Wisconsin is being used to do the same thing for the United States. Note that the CEO of this Wisconsin company says the planned microchip implants by employees has been very well received.
Before big business and the international bankers do anything on a large scale, they always run a series of minor tests or POLLS to evaluate what the public reaction will be. In the old days, its a bit like show business, before they released a play in big time New York they would always release it in Boston first, to “test the water” and see how well it would generally be received, before risking the much bigger cost in releasing it in New York. Well big business are doing this with implantable microchips on humans as well.
If you read this FOX 6 NEWS report, “New Technology: Workers at Wisconsin company volunteer to be micro-chipped” http://fox6now.com/2017/07/24/new-technology-workers-at-wisconsin-company-volunteer-to-be-microchipped/ scroll down the article to their POLL, “Would you consider being micro-chipped if it made aspects of your life easier?” Note that so far, the FOX NEWS POLL (if its correct which I presume it is) currently is showing 89.10% of people say NO, and only 10.81% of people say YES. I would expect that they would be very unhappy with these figures, which even come as a surprise to me, which contradict what the CEOs of the Wisconsin Company and Swedish Company are saying. However, its all part of a deliberate process to test public opinion, and to refine the advertising before introducing the full scale “mark of the beast” global program, and I would expect more small program releases like this before a mass one. Just have to remain vigilant.
