By implanting a microchip into the body, users no longer need to carry around keycards, identification cards, and even train tickets.

Micro chips replace many papers and cards.
Thousands of people in Sweden have just attended the smart chip implant festival in Stockholm. Participants implanted in chips for many different purposes, such as to change tickets to the subway, to vote in the gym ...



About 3,000 people in Sweden have inserted microchips. It is as small as a grain of rice and has been implanted under the skin, for the past 3 years.

Users can connect the chip to a smartphone, via the app.

"I also decided to implant a microchip in my hand, to explore the practical opportunities this chip offers," said Alex Baker, CEO of Retail Tech X Company.

About 3,000 people in Sweden have inserted microchips. It is as small as a grain of rice and has been implanted under the skin, for the past 3 years. This technology was first used in the Nordic nation in 2015. This transplant chip has helped replace many of the necessary papers and cards in everyday life.

For example, for Ulrika Celsing - 28 years old - the microchip under the skin of her hand was used to replace her gym card and office key card. Every time she arrived at work, she simply waved near a small box and typed in the verification code to open the door.

In 2017, state-owned SJ railway began using hand-scanning technology of passengers with biometric chips, to collect their train fees right on board.

Of course, these chips can completely be used to purchase goods. It's similar to a touchless credit card, but no one has tested it yet.

"Like ants burning"
Putting the microchip under the skin is similar to piercing, and one will use a cylinder to inject the chip into the user's hand. Celsing had a chip implanted at an event at the company, and she said it felt like "ants".

However, the implanted chip can cause infections or reactions in the body's immune system. Ben Libberton, a microbiologist at the MAX IV lab in southern Sweden, said.

Biohacking - body modification with emerging technology as more and more people start using wearable technology devices like Apple Watch and Fitbit.

About four years ago, Swedish biohacking group Bionyfiken started organizing "chip implant festivals". That's where groups of users insert chips under their hands on a large scale in many countries including the US, UK, France, Germany and Mexico. About 50 employees at Wisconsin-based vending machine company Three Square Market. They volunteered to agree to insert microchips into their hands. The purpose is for them to use them to buy snacks, log on to the computer, or use photocopiers.


Tony Danna, vice president of Three Square Market, is getting a microchip implanted at his company's headquarters in Wisconsin in August 2017.

Sweden is perhaps the country that is willing to test new technologies, more than most other countries in the world. 10 million people in this country are more willing to share their personal information than anywhere else. This information is already recorded by the Swedish social security system and can be used at any time. People can see how much others pay, just by calling public tax authorities.

Many of them don't believe that microchip technology is advanced enough to be hacked.

Libberton, a microbiologist, also said that the data collected and shared by these implant chips was too limited. So users don't have to worry about being hacked or being followed.

Meanwhile, Hannes Sjoblad, founder of Bionyfiken, said in 2015: “The human body is the next big foundation. The connected body has become a phenomenon, and this transplant is only part of it. ”

“We have been updating our bodies with technology on a large scale, through wearables. But every wearable device we wear today will probably be implanted in about 5-10 years. Who wants to carry an ugly smartphone or smartwatch, when they can put it in the palm of their hand? I think that's the direction this technology is heading, ”explains Hannes Sjoblad.
