New surgical microchips the key to the future

Imagine a world where people can enter buildings and turn on machines using a tiny microchip in their hands. Well, that future—at least for Sweden—isn’t too far out.

A few office workers in Sweden are being injected with a microchip the size of a grain of rice “that will open doors, turn on machines and serve as a business card,” according to Q13 Fox.

The Swedish company plans to eventually have the chip allow workers to pay for their meals at the office café as well. Epicenter is a high-tech office complex in Sweden. The point of this product is to test the efficiency of the technology.

“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, chief disruption officer of Epicenter, said.

Government microchips are already a concern in America. NBC has reported their prediction of all Americans being micro-chipped by 2017. According to the recently passed H.R. 4872 bill, the implantable radiofrequency transponder system is intended to enable access to patient identification and health information. The bill also states that manufacturers of the microchips have to complete certain government testing requirements and submit a premarket notification before putting them on the market.

Such testing includes: biocompatibility, information security, software validation, migration testing of implanted responder, performance testing of implanted transponder, performance testing of inserter, performance testing and hazard analysis of electronic scanner, electromagnetic compatibility, electrical safety performance testing, sterility, magnetic resonance imaging compatibility, and labeling for any precautions for packaging and sterility.

Accusations of the government chipping all Americans and being able to locate people by their chip cannot be confirmed. As of now, the only information that can be confirmed is that the FDA has approved radiofrequency identification devices that enable access to patient identification and provide corresponding health information. Basically, these chips would be able to confirm the person to be who they say they are; an implanted social security, or health insurance card. More advanced chips that serve as a debit card are likely to be created in the future.

  4. This is why Norway will close its borders with Sweden. Human slavery on the way.
    Immigrants will be first. If you’re an arab in Sweden, get OUT NOW.

  5. No doubt it’s coming. They just need an excuse, like vaccine to scare everybody into taking it.

  6. take this chip (666) and you will go to hell for all eternity. DONT DO IT!

    • Do you think we will have a choice or they can force you, by holding you down or if you sick and they do an operation they can put it in us when we are not conscious?

      • If you believe in God and Jesus Christ, the mark of the beast has to do with worship. The world is in so much chaos, the devil knows his time is almost up, most Christians don’t study the bible nor believe in the return of Jesus Christ. Everyone is looking for a world leader who will bring order back to this world. This will be the anti-Christ. There will be one religion, one government, and one currency. It looks like the microchip implant can be the mark that they use but you have to wonder, who is the beast? If you don’t worship the beast, then you would not take the mark. What if they tie you down like you say? Well, this would be forced and bible history shows that God nor the devil cannot force you. God by nature allows free will. And the devil is forbidden to force us, he can tempt us but not force us.
