A Wisconsin Company to Microchip its Employees

Constantly misplacing your work badge? Workers at a Wisconsin company called Three Square Market (32M) may never have that problem again.

Because of 32M, which sells vending kiosks for office break rooms, wants to implant microchips into its employees’ bodies. The tiny, implantable RFID chips (which you can in the picture) use near-field communications—the same technology found in contactless credit cards and mobile payment systems—to let employees make purchases in the company’s break room mini market, open doors, log in to their computers, use the copy machine, and more.

They’ll be implanted underneath the skin in the space between the thumb and forefinger; the implantation procedure is over “within seconds,” 32M said in a press release.

The program is optional, but 32M is expecting more than 50 staff members to be “voluntarily chipped.” The Microchipcompany is even planning a “chip party” at its River Falls, Wis. headquarters on August 1, during which employees will be able to get their implants.

In a statement, 32M CEO Todd Westby predicted that implantable chips will be used in the future to do everything from unlocking your phone to share business cards and store your medical and health information.

“Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities,” and more, he predicted.

The company says it will be the first in the US to offer its employees implanted microchip technology. In Europe, 32M has partnered with a Swedish company called BioHax International, which has already started implanting microchips into its own employees, to make this a reality.

“When working with our operators over in Europe, we came across a company of chipped employees at BioHax International and the concept of using RFID with micro markets quickly grew,” 32M’s VP of International Sales Tony Danna said in a statement. “We see chip technology as the next evolution in payment systems.”Contact Musato Technologies for more information on ICT technologies trends and how we can assist your business to achieve its strategic goals.
