In Sweden, at least 4,000 inhabitants carry an electronic device implanted somewhere in the hand, and with advances in this technology it seems that there will be an increase in the use of these electronic devices.
The microchip boom came in 2015 to the Swedish country, being one of the most advanced ones in terms of biohacking or transhumanism, movements that intend to use technology to improve the human body.
In the case of microchips in all their types, in upgrades, models and designs, their main objective is to facilitate daily life to those who have them as if they were some kind of clothing under their skin. And among other things, they allow, for example, access to work or gym, take out products from the vending machine in the office or validate the train ticket with only one hand movement.
New Payment Method
Many people in Sweden have inserted these microchips in themselves, because they can function as credit cards, without direct contact with some type of machine, at the same time there are also key cards and even rail cards in their bodies.
Once the chip is under the skin, there is no need to worry about placing a card or carrying a heavy wallet, something that makes our lives better, more comfortable and convenient.
New Identity Card
Another utility that has been given to this new technology, is to replace the plastic cards of a conventional identity card with an electronic identity, easier to use and without occupying any kind of space.
In Sweden this has happened, and more than 4,000 people are being part of this evolution in the world, with the electronic identity being one of the first advances.
The path of technology has made us evolve as human beings. Every day new things are discovered, and this advance of microchips could be much more useful in the future, but it could also be dangerous because our information would be at the mercy of states that can know our position or all our biological data wherever we are.
