Staff at a technology company have agreed to be microchipped.

Almost half of workers at Three Square Market – also known as 32M – volunteered to have the implant at a “chip party”.

It will allow them to open doors, log on to computers or buy snacks in the break room at the Wisconsin
firm’s headquarters by simply waving their hand.

The company, based in River Falls, revealed 41 of their 85 employees had agreed to been microchipped.

They felt a brief sting when the implant was put into their hands.

Melissa Timmins, vice president of sales, added: “I planned for the worst and it wasn’t bad at all. Just a little prick.”

Bosses believe this is the first US appearance of technology already available in Europe.

Experts predict the use of microchip implants in humans is just a glimpse of the future

 

The data in the £226 microchip is encrypted and does not use GPS, so it cannot be used to track employees or obtain
private information.

Three Square Market hope the chips can eventually be used on everything from air travel to public transit and storing medical information.

Professor Jeremy Hajek, of the Illinois Institute of Technology, said microchipping started years ago with vets implanting the devices in dogs and cats that might get lost.

    That’s the MARK 1 Version, wait until they get the Mark 2 improved version, and they have a fall out with their bosses, and the chip gets switched off.

    YOU’VE BEEN CHIPPED.

    These fools who are allowing themselves to be chipped need educated.
    The Russo/Jones interview needs to go viral before the PTB decide to take it of the internet.

  2. It’s frightening to see how gullible these people are. I saw it on the mainstream news the other day. A young American guy, who’d just been chipped, was excited because he could order and pay for his Kit-Kat in the break room.

    As you quite rightly say Zoro, it won’t stop there.

  3. Not very long in the near future….how he’s going to pay for his Kit-Kat will be the least of his worries.

    To be fair, he’s almost certainly clueless on what they have in store for him, and almost certainly he’s never heard of Aaron Russo.
    Once he finds out he’s been duped though….lol

    We have the advantage of at least seeing the Russo/Jones interview. And he hasn’t.
    On the other hand…if he has seen it, and still wants to be chipped then he deserves everything that’s coming to him.
