Description
A needle is used to implant microchips underneath human skin, and several office workers at the Epicenter hi-tech office block in Stockholm were recently implanted with RFID chips. The radio-frequency identification microchips, or RFID, are roughly the size of a rice grain and can transmit personal information over short distances. This video discusses that the company will not be tracking it's employees with the chips, but will be allowing them easier access through technology. The implanted RFID provides easy access to unlocking pin code prompts in both smartphones and office doors.
