In Sweden microchip insertion has been on the rise since the announcement of COVID-19 shot passport requirements, according to several media sources. The chips apparently utilize radio frequency identification technology complete with wifi scanners/readers.
Digital cultures researcher Moa Petersen stated on December 1 of this year that around 6,000 Swedes have gotten a chip in their hands so far, which allows them to be “scanned” for having received a COVID-19 shot. This, after the country announced the requirement to show proof of receiving a Covid shot for any event with over 100 people in attendance.
Those who have submitted to a chip insertion have also stopped carrying keys, ID cards, and train tickets in lieu of getting their hand scanned for these items.
A company called Epicenter specializes in subdermal microchips which are as small as a grain of rice. This chip can store COVID-19 passports, among other things.
Epicenter’s chief disruption officer, Hannes Sjoblad, said, “Implants are very versatile technology that can be used for many different things, and right now it is very convenient to have Covid passport always accessible on your implant.”
Further, Sjoblad said, “In case your phone runs out of battery, it’s always accessible to you. So of course, that’s how we use this technology today, next year we are going to use it for something else.”
Sjoblad insists the process is “100% reversable.”
A company called BiChip announced in 2018 that they’re calling those with chips inside of them “transhumans.” Metro reported: “The Copenhagen-based firm is part of a growing movement called Transhumanism, which believes in augmenting human beings with technology to improve upon their natural (or God-given, depending on your perspective) abilities.”
The chips BiChip is pushing can be used as a sort of “wallet,” especially for cryptocurrency with the company’s own BiChipCoin.
