Sign o’ the times

 

A Stockholm company has made a big step forward offering its employees “microchip injections,” to allow greater access to company benefits.  Swedish startup Hub Epicenter offers an injection between the thumb and the forefinger that deposits a microchip the size of a small grain of rice and it allows you to open doors, operate printers, attend parties and buy smoothies with a wave of the hand. 

The company CEO says the biggest benefit is convenience.  The technology is well used and has been around for decades but mostly in pet collars and credit cards but has never been used to tag employees on a large scale.  CEO Patrick Mesterton said,” It basically replaces a lot of things you have, other communication devices, whether it be credit cards or keys."
