    32M Becomes First-Ever Company to Implant Micro-Chips in Employees

    Biohacking could be a next big thing in this smart world.

    Over two years ago, a hacker implanted a small NFC chip in his left hand right between his thumb and his pointer finger and hacked Android smartphones and bypassed almost all security measures, demonstrating the risks of Biohacking.

    At the end of the same year, another hacker implanted a small NFC chip with the private key to his Bitcoin wallet under his skin, making him able to buy groceries or transfer money between bank accounts by just waving his hand.

    And this is soon going to be a reality, at least in one tech company in Wisconsin.


    Marketing solution provider Three Square Market (32M) has announced that it had partnered with Swedish biohacking firm BioHax International for offering implanted microchips to all their employees on 1st August, according to the company's website.

    Although the programme is optional, the company wants at least more than 50 of its employees to undergo the Biohacking procedure.

    Like previous bio hacks, the chips will be implanted underneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger, and will also use near-field communications (NFC) — the same technology that makes contactless credit cards and mobile payments possible — along with radio-frequency identification (RFID).

    According to the company, the implanted chips would allow its employees to log into their office computers, pay for food and drink from office vending machines, open doors and use the copy machine, among other purposes.

    The company CEO has also confirmed that 'there's no GPS tracking at all.'

    "We foresee the use of RFID technology to drive everything from making purchases in our office break room market, opening doors, use of copy machines, logging into our office computers, unlocking phones, sharing business cards, storing medical/health information, and used as payment at other RFID terminals," 32M chief executive Todd Westby said."Eventually, this technology will become standardised allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc."
    Interested employees will be chipped at the 32M inaugural "chip party" on 1st August at the company's headquarters in River Falls, Wisconsin.


    Three Square Market is considered as a leader in micro market technology, which designs mini-convenience stores using a self-checkout kiosk (vending machines), often found in large companies.

    The company has more than 2,000 kiosks in nearly 20 different countries, and it operates over 6,000 kiosks in TurnKey Corrections, the firm's corrections industry business.

    While the Biometric information and technology are experiencing an increase in popularity, it also raises widespread concerns around the safety and privacy of people adopting it.

    Hackers could misuse the technology used to provide easiness to the public against the public itself, and one should not forget that with the advance in technology, the techniques used by cyber criminals also improves.

    Chip Mates - A misleading Internet report spread the false impression that Australia has instituted a policy of microchipping its citizens.
    http://www.snopes.com/australia-becomes-first-country-to-begin-microchipping/

    "False"

    "Australia has not begun microchipping its public. The claim that it has is, at best, misinformation and, at worst, a lie.

    And it’s also not true that, as claimed in the example at the head of this page, NBC predicted that “all Americans will receive a microchip implant in 2017.”"

    Chip on Your Shoulder - 'Obamacare' health care legislation does not require that anyone be implanted with RFID microchips.
    http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/microchip.asp

    “Big Brother” rumors (often linked to the “mark of the beast” referenced in Revelation 13:16-18) warning that the government will ultimately require all citizens to be implanted with microchips have been around just about as long as microchips have, and specific claims that health care reform legislation will require such implantations date to the Clinton administration. So, the warning reproduced above — that health care reform legislation passed by the U.S. Congress in 2010 would require “this sort of device be implanted in the majority of people who opt to become covered by the public health care option” — is nothing new under the sun. This warning is also just as false as all such previous rumors, a combination of someone’s using inapplicable source material and also misunderstanding the meaning of the information contained within that source.

    First off, the referenced information was not part of the “Obamacare” health care legislation actually enacted by Congress. The page numbers and language cited in the example above were taken from HR 3200, an early House version of health care reform legislation which was never passed by Congress; passages cited from HR 3200 are therefore irrelevant. The cited wording did not appear in the replacement bill (HR 3590) eventually passed as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and although similar language was included in initial versions of the subsequent reconciliation bill (HR 4872), it too did not appear in the final version of that bill as passed by Congress.

    Second, nothing in any of those unpassed bills mandated that anyone be implanted with any type of microchip or RFID-based device, for any reason. The passages quoted above reference a section of the legislation that simply called for the creation of a registry which would allow the Department of Health and Human Services to collect data about medical devices “used in or on a patient” (such as pacemakers or hip replacements) for purposes that included tracking the effectiveness of such devices and facilitating the distribution of manufacturer recall notices. Absolutely nothing in those bills required that patients receive any type of implantable device (microchip or otherwise) or authorized the government to mandate the implantation of devices in patients.

    Updates: A 28 July 2013 article about implanted microchips being “given a test run on the proud and patriotic citizens of Hanna, Wyoming” was mistaken by many readers for a genuine news story. However, that article was just a spoof from the satirical National Report web site.

    The rumors made another appearance in the fall of 2016, when various stories began to appear once again about RFID chip implantations, this time mandatory as of 2017 rather than 2013. Needless to say, these rumors were also completely false.

    There are a lot of talking, debates and news here and there, we can expect anything those days. We can just wait and see.
