Constantly misplacing your work badge? Workers at a Wisconsin company called Three Square Market (32M) may never have that problem again.Because 32M, which sells vending kiosks for office break rooms, wants to implant microchips into its employees’ bodies. The tiny, implantable RFID chips (which you can see above) use near-field communications—the same technology found in contactless credit cards and mobile payment systems—to let employees make purchases in the company’s break room mini market, open doors, log in to their computers, use the copy machine, and more.They’ll be implanted underneath the skin in the space between the thumb and forefinger; the implantation procedure is over “within seconds,” 32M said in a press release.
