It scenes reminiscent from a science fiction movie, companies have begun micro-chipping their employees in some parts of the world.
The U.S, Australia and Sweden are among the first in the world to have started chipping their workers, in an effort to move technology into a new era.
The micro-chipping has been implemented to streamline the working process. Employees are able to open doors, operate light switches and other procedures once only capable with key cards or codes.
Now in Australia, it has been reported how workers over there are embracing this new technology.
Aussie news outlet news.com.au reported in the wake of the new phenomenon,
“It may sound like sci-fi, but hundreds of Australians are turning themselves into super-humans who can unlock doors, turn on lights and log into computers with a wave of the hand.”
Sydney resident Shanti Korporaal has had two implants installed under her skin, and is now able to get into work with having to remember her keys and cards.
She told the news outlet:
“You could set up your life so you never have to worry about any password or PINs it’s the same technology as Paypass, so I’m hoping you’ll be able to pay for things with it.”
The benefits to the whole system seem obvious, but the question of human rights surely plays a big part in this story.
Would you let your employer fit you with a micro-chip, in the interest of making your job easier’?
