In Sweden, the use of a microchip implanted under the skin of people, which contains personal information, contact and about his vaccination against coronavirus. However, this micro device also works to be used instead of keys, business cards or rail passes.
This chip was developed by the Swedish startup Epicenter, as well as DSruptive Subdermals, and it has already been implanted in thousands of inhabitants of that country for some years, but its use increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since as we mentioned in AmericanPost.News, in the data of the microchip can be placed those of the vaccination certificate against the virus, which is used to enter some Swedish public places.
Subcutaneous microchip is placed voluntarily
At the moment, the use of this microchip in humans has a voluntary characteror, and the developer ensures that They have no battery, they cannot transmit signals by themselves, such as location, and are only activated in contact with a smartphone.
Furthermore, it is seen by many as the great future of humanity. “I think it is part of my integrity to carry a chip and keep my personal information for myself,” Amanda Back, a Stockholm citizen who uses this device, told AFP. “I feel like I have more control being on the inside of my hand,” he added.
The cost of the subcutaneous microchip
According to Hannes Sjoblad, Head of DSruptive Subdermals, his price of 100 euros (about 2,300 Mexican pesos) they are an investment with durability of 30 to 40 years, which ensures that it is a better investment than buying a smart watch or bracelet, with a durability of about 3 or 4 years.
Therefore, using a microchip for various daily activities in Sweden has become the best technological tool for many of its inhabitants, and this idea could reach other countries.
