One simply needs to endure the pain of an ant bite between his thumb and index finger to get a microchip implant inside and turn into a cyborg. Might sound like a sci-fi movie but a Swedish company has already started the practice for real, and its employees are eagerly lining up for receiving a grain-sized microchip implant.
I wonder why…
Consentual or forced?
Epicenter, a Stockholm-based company is routinely implanting its employees with microchips. Even though not mandatory, over 150 employees so far are voluntarily taking part in the process routinely.
The reason behind their consent is simple, the co-founder and CEO of Epicenter, Patrick Mesterton believes it is all about the conveniences involved. One code will sort out multiple errands starting from applying for a credit card to buying food for consumption, everything can be sorted with the help of a microchip. One does not need to carry redundant items anymore while moving about.
Yet I still consider it a taboo when one can enjoy the same benefits using a smartphone, and it does not require any microchip implants.
Likely possibilities of making cyborgs
If microchip implantation is truly practiced, then it is only a matter of ten years from now for a fully functional cyborg to emerge in the market.
