Would You IMPLANT A Chip So You Can Breeze Through Airport Security? This Has Now Begun

This seems like a timesaver, right? No documents needed, just breeze through life with a chip in your hand. Technology is amazing. And technology in itself is neither good nor bad, it is neutral, merely a tool. But the authorities who have access to and control the tool, or technology, are not always, in fact are nearly never, neutral. What do you think about this innovation? Would you do it?

Imagine boarding your flight and checking into an airport lounge without having any paperwork or physical identification.

Well that is what happened after Andreas Sjöström implanted a near-field communication chip (NFC) in his hand before going to the airport to catch a flight.

Sjöström took viewers on a journey as he waved his hand over a scanner, allowing him to slide through airport security and right to his seat on the plane.

‘A few weeks ago I had an NFC chip implanted into my hand, just beneath the skin,’ Sjöström, vice president of digital for technology consulting at Sogeti, explained in the video.

The chip held his Scandinavian Airlines EuroBonus member ID, and since the airport has NFC readers all the way from security to the gate.

Sjöström didn’t need the traditional boarding pass, just a flick of his wrist to place the microchip on top of the scanner.

This type of cutting-edge technology has been used for digital payments, controlling mobile phones and unlocking doors, according to The Telegraph.

The microchip used in this experiment was an xNT implant from Dangerous Things, which develops biohacking and citizen science equipment.

The kits come with microchips, surgical gloves and syringes that can be ordered directly through on the Dangerous Things website.

It also comes with detailed instructions on how to implant the chip into your hand.

Sjöström explained the process was painless and the only way to know the chip is in your skin is by rubbing your hand over it.

‘I didn’t have to pull out anything,’ he explained.

‘It gave me a new sensation, sort of a pre-notion of what it will be like in the future when we don’t have to reach out with physical objects to accomplish things.’

Those in power who CAN control us via implanted chip or anything else, will eventually often do so. It is in the nature of the human beast to succumb to the lure of power and control. Any technology that can be used for good, like getting through the airport more quickly, can also be used for evil. History is filled with examples of well intended technology being used to accomplish evil. We are better off avoiding the potential tyranny of the government beast by avoiding what eerily resembles the mark of the beast. No thanks, I’ll just print my boarding pass.
