People In Sweden Are Getting Microchipped And It's Scary

Many people in Sweden have started to get microchipped since the spring of 2018. People can get a chip surgically inserted between their thumb and index finger which then replaces all plastic cards, keys, and other things they usually have to carry with them. And if in 2017, only 100 people had these chips, then now, as Daily Mail reports, this number has risen to over 4,000 people, and it’s still growing.

See what this chip is and what it does:

  1. It replaces all bank cards, travel cards, electronic wallets, and different key cards. You can use it to pay by merely touching a terminal with your hand.
  2. It is as small as a grain of rice.
  3. Its price along with the procedure is $180. Some companies even offer this service to their employees.
  4. It does not have a GPS tracker, so a person cannot be tracked.
  5. The chip only works if it is several inches away from the reader. So it’s not easy for this information to be stolen by criminals unless they somehow get the person’s hand.
  6. It's passive, so it only contains the information, but it can’t access any information from other devices.

In the video, you can see how it works. Scientists believe this device opens a door for Swedes to the new digital age. Besides, it's convenient.

How it looks (you cannot really see it):

If you press it, you can see this:

Some people have also criticized this new invention. Skeptics think that, first of all, no one can guarantee that the personal information contained in those chips will be confidential. Second, some people are certain that these chips will soon have GPS trackers in them. It’s entirely possible that it will all begin with big companies that will want to track the location of their employees. Otherwise (and that's a conspiracy theory) why would some companies provide this service for free.

Perhaps, five years later, someone will read this article and laugh at such conservative views. However, the ethical side of this question still worries a lot of people.
