Swedish firm Epicenter is offering employees a miniscule RFID chip to provide various kinds of access
Want to gain entry to your office, buy a coffee or perhaps even a dress in the store situated in your office block but have forgotten the access and credit card at home, no worries, at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, you can do all of the above without worrying carrying a access or credit card. How? Epicenter is trying a different approach – a chip under the skin.
Epicenter which has setup a swank new office block in Sweden, is hoping to provide card free services to its employees by injecting a Radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip under the skin.
In Australia ( Like in most of the world ) we put these RFID chips into cats and dogs, this makes it easier to find the owner should the animal get lost.
I am not a cat or dog and I would refuse to do this even if it meant my job, This sort of thing is just another foot in the door towards Big Brother type of world where we are marked like cattle and all our movements are tracked, and something like this would make it easy.
