Zero Hedge: A startup in Sweden called Biohax International has microchipped more than 4,000 people across the country who can use their hands to open secured doors, replace credit cards and cash, pay for transportation tickets, and share emergency information with medical personnel, reported New York Post.
The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and the procedure to inject it into a hand costs about $180 — is similar to getting a vaccination.
“It’s very ‘Black Mirror,'” Swedish scientist Ben Libberton told The Post.
Biohax founder Jowan Österlund told Fortune magazine that his chips are considered “moonshot” technology — has sparked institutional interest in the last 6 to 8 months. Some have even said they want to take the technology of microchipping humans to a global level.
“Tech will move into the body,” Österlund said. “I am sure of that.”
Opinion: Cryptocurrencies and injectable chips fit Bible prophecy like a glove, but will likely not become mainstream until governments decide to ban cash, and the chip technology becomes more advanced.
Current chips have no tracking capabilities, don’t have any battery and they don’t have any GPS sensors. If someone was going to track you, they’d use your cell phone, says Kayla Heffernan Ph.D., an Assistant Professor of Mathematics at University of Pittsburgh.
“The current models of microchip are not much more sophisticated than those that have been embedded in the neck of most household pets for more than two decades.”
Developers are working on a model that will be able to hold more than one number, meaning the same card can be used to hold multiple access codes and on a chip that has the level of encryption required to be able to handle payments.
“If you could use it for everywhere, so work, home, gym and only need one chip, that kind of gives people more incentive to get one,” Heffernan says. “Payments are the killer application. As soon as you can pay with it, more and more people will go ahead and get these.”
So what comes first, Rapture, or cashless society and mandatory advanced microchips?
He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
