Wisconsin company to implant microchips in its employees in August

A Wisconsin tech company says they are about to become the first business in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees.

Three Square Market (32M), a River Falls-based software design company, says starting August 1st, it will be offering microchips to all their employees. The chips will be implanted underneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger, which will allow employees to pay for food and drinks in the company’s break room, open security doors, and login into their computers without any special cards—or passwords.
“Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.," Todd Westby, 32M CEO said in a company press release.
The technology the company is using is called RFID or (Radio-Frequency Identification) that uses electromagnetic fields to identify electronically-stored information. The chips will also use near-field communications (NFC), the same type of technology that is used in most contactless credit cards and mobile payments. Westby says these microchips have already become very popular in many European markets around the world and they want to be ahead of the curve in bringing it to the U.S.
"We see chip technology as the next evolution in payment systems, much like micro markets have steadily replaced vending machines. As a leader in micro market technology, it is important that 32M continues leading the way with advancements such as chip implants," Westby said.
Each chip costs about $300 and Westby says that more than fifty employees are expected to partake in the new program next week. However, he does stress that the program is optional for those who wish to opt out.

Dang, I was hoping it would not start until after my children's lifetime.


I guess there is not much else after the culture decided males are not men and females are not girls though. What is left of Gods design to upturn?

Can't wait until some scammer with an RFID cloning chip implanted in their hand shakes hands with a 32M employee, steals all their data or abilities, then just goes into 32M and cleans it out.

I will laugh very hard at that.

What's the big deal? If you have ever had an access card to a building it's the same thing. Just smaller and somewhere you won't leave at home... it doesn't contain personal data, the system it accesses has your data... and that can be hacked any time.

that is the big deal 2e,, it is inside your body and can be hacked. It is a totally different ballgame than something that you have the option to leave or forget or intentionally get rid of,,,,,and who knows what it can ACTUALLY be used to do to our bodies once inside,,,

Well, you can be concerned if you want but you have to look at what kind of data is actually on the chip. Unless they specifically say it has the persons specific info, it's random badge id info that means nothing except to that system it's programmed for. It's not even as sophisticated as your RFID Credit Cards or NFC smart phones that can be tapped to pay for stuff. I would be more worried about those devices being hacked than a rice sized access card under my skin.

how can you KNOW that? I do not trust anyone implanting any technology in my body that someone else can control or access,,,,

BTW, they have pacemakers that are constantly updating info to Doctors via the internet about a patients heart. So having devices inside the body that can be hacked is not that new.

just sayin...

Well, I deal with this as a part of my job. You can see the specs of what they actually have on the chip. Yes, there is potential that chips CAN have personal data about you but from what I have found on this particular technology, there is no personal data.

well,the Recipient has no way of knowing what Data is on the Chip!
A Card he can discard,but to discard the Chip is a bit more problematic,and becomes more problematic still if the Recipient doesn't know he has indeed become a Recipient!

That is true, but people are not being hacked open to have the info stolen off the pace maker
