A Wisconsin technology company is offering its employees microchip implants that can be used to scan into the building and purchase food at work. Whether or not to get a chip is up to the employee to decide.

Three Square Market, a company that provides technology for break-room or micro markets, has over 50 employees who plan to have the devices implanted, KSTP-TV reported. The tiny chip, which uses RFID technology or Radio-Frequency Identification, can be implanted between the thumb and forefinger "within seconds," according to a statement from the company.


"It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby told the station.
We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals," Westby said in a company statement. "Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities,

this makes me uncomfortable as hell.

Those people that were offered the micro chip must have been 'voluntold' to do this as per their career being on the line. There couldn't be any other way unless those people are actually dumb. The risk of the company knowing your location and your bodily functions. I'm sure the chip does more than just "purchase food" and "used to scan into building."

Once those people signed that agreement line to get that implant. They've basically signed away their freedom.

honestly, the fact that the company is well aware that people could potentially clone and use said chip for malicious use urks me more. This just a system waiting to be ridiculed because I'm sure the company is planning to sell this to the government in the next decade or less. This will be an extremely flawed system with zero control of the chip's information and their network system behind the chips use.

Now this is just creepy. A chip in your body that can be tracked just like your cellphones and your computer. No thank you.

People have shown they will panic over nothing this is another situation.

It's completely optional and mostly harmless it is hackable like nemoskull said but no need to fucking panic like the morons i see everywhere are.

If it was safe and unhackable and i could do this to save me holding onto my wallet i would honestly do it aslong as there was no tracking.



This here was OPTIONAL - NO GPS/TRACKING - PAID FOR BY THE STORE.
So there is 0 problems but people like to make problems out of nothing even one person suggesting they sue the company for offering such an option (the fuck)

Most things can be copied and used maliciously doesn't mean you should just ditch it as an option.

I may sound like i'm ditching the option, but I'd rather them not try and make this a standard. It should ONLY BE an option. I don't trust anything that allows the government to micromanage so easily, especially when it is not a necessity.

Technology is already significantly more advanced than our capacity to handle said technology wisely, if this becomes mainstream it will backfire horrifically.

Alright, the only reason that a microchip needs to be implanted is because it needs to be there to regulate blood flow etc, termed nano machine. But if it is for external uses you can just carry a card . Maybe they will come up with the next best idea, doesn't mean we have to try it until then
