Wisconsin Company Become First in U.S. to Implant Microchips in Employees

A Wisconsin technology company is offering its employees implantable chips to open doors, purchase food, log in to computers, and use office equipment like copy machines.

Three Square Market, a company that provides technology for break-room or micro markets, has over 50 employees who plan to have the devices implanted, KSTP-TV reported. The tiny chip, which uses RFID technology or Radio-Frequency Identification, can be implanted between the thumb and forefinger “within seconds,” according to a statement from the company.

While microchipping employees may sound like something out of a horror film, the company is partnering with Swedish company BioHax International, which already has many “chipped” employees.

CEO Todd Westby said employees are not required to get the microchips and there is no GPS tracking.
