Identification chips have been proposed for various reasons, including security and medical identification. More than 3,000 people in Sweden have had microchips implanted under their skin. The microchips eliminate the need for car keys, credit cards and even train tickets. Is this just cool technology or could it increase surveillance?
A human microchip implant is typically an identifying integrated circuit device or RFID transponder encased in silicate glass and implanted in the body of a human being. This type of subdermal implant usually contains a unique ID number that can be linked to information contained in an external database, such as personal identification, law enforcement, medical history, medications, allergies, and contact information.
Will identification chips, implanted under the skin, be just a new TREND, an INNOVATION or the prophesied mark of the Beast mentioned in the book of Revelation???
Also volunteers in Melbourne have had microchips inserted for three months, designed to unlock doors and carry out other tasks.
Will they really be any use?
