Your Boss Wants to Microchip You
There is a company out of Wisconsin that says, "It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it."
It's Three Square Market and according to an article from MSN.com they are "a company that provides technology for break room or micro markets," and they have over 50 employees planning to have the devices implanted into them.
Based on the article, a chip will be easily implanted between the thumb and index finger to swipe in and out, it'll also be able to allow employees to purchase food. What are your thoughts on this?
I'm sitting here and I'm imagining a world that is very movie-like and it freaks me right the heck out. Maybe it shouldn't. But, I don't see how it can't.
If we start allowing ourselves to be microchipped, what else is going to all of a sudden become okay or enforced? Can you imagine being turned down for your dream job because you don't want something implanted into your body? That seems ridiculous, right? That could be a thing.
I realize I'm jumping to something completely different, but this makes me think of that Will Smith movie, iRobot. Robots created by man and that then become their own "people." We watch these movies and think they're just entertainment and could never happen and then live in a world with Siri and Alexa.
