Microchip Implants at Work, Does That Make Me Part Robot?
I like my privacy. I don't really have anything in particular that I need to hide from people but I just feel uncomfortable with people knowing what I'm doing and where I am all of the time. I have my phone for that and even that freaks me out a bit.
I came across this article on the Times Union that said that a company in Stockholm is injecting microchips into their employees to be used to open doors, utilize printers, or even buy themselves smoothies. A quick click and you have a microchip implanted in between your thumb and index finger.
I have to type in a code to get in the door at work, then I have a key to get into the office and sure, it would be nice to not have to do all of that or have to keep track of keys but implants? They're comparing the technology to pacemakers saying that people shouldn't be worried, we're already implanted technology into our bodies. That's different, technology to keep me alive versus technology because I'm to lazy to bring my card to buy myself a smoothie are two different things completely! What do you think of microchip implants for work? Good idea or are we getting too involved in technology?
