Last August, 50 employees at Three Square Market got RFID chips in their hands.
Now 80 have them. From a report: The idea came about in early 2017, president
of Three Square Market Patrick McMullan says, when he was on a business trip to
Sweden -- a country where some people are getting subcutaneous microchips to do
things like enter secure buildings or book train tickets. It's one of very few
places where chip implants, which have been around for quite a while, have
taken off in some fashion. The chips he and his employees got are about the
size of a very large grain of rice. They're intended to make it a little easier
to do things like get into the office, log on to computers, and buy food and
drinks in the company cafeteria. Like many RFID chips, they are passive -- they
don't have batteries, and instead get their power from an RFID reader when it
requests data from the chip. A year into their experiment, McMullan and a few
employees say they are still using the chips regularly at work for all the
activities they started out with last summer. Since then, an additional 30
employees have gotten the chips, which means that roughly 80 of the company's
now 250 employees, or nearly a third, are walking, talking cyborgs. "You get
used to it; it's easy," McMullan says. As far as he knows, just two Three
Square Market employees have had their chips removed -- and that was when they
left the company.
