Wisconsin Company Holds ‘Chip Party’ And Begins Microchipping Employees

River Falls, Wisconsin — August 2, 2017 —  We all enjoy a good company party or two where fellow employees and co-workers get together to celebrate the holidays or a special company occasion.  Sometimes the party includes special awards, staff recognition and often they include h’orderves, drinks and even special snacks and chips attendees can enjoy during their time at the party.

One Wisconsin based company, Three Square Market had a similar idea with their company party, only they replaced ‘edible chips’ with ‘microchips’ and on August 1, 2017 they began microchipping their employees.

Why you ask?

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel so they can log onto computers and buy snacks and ‘chips” of their own simply by waving their hand.

Three Square Market, also known as 32M, said 41 of its 85 employees agreed to be voluntarily microchipped during a “chip party” at company headquarters in River Falls. The tiny microchip was injected under the skin between the thumb and index finger and employees will use it to open doors, log in to computers and pay for snacks, among other things, the report said.

A company from Sweden, Biohax International, installed the glass-encased chips, also known by a more ominous name, radio frequency identification (RFID) transponders.

Three Square Market says the device is not trackable and that there is no GPS tracking in the device itself, so the chip cannot be used to track its employees.

Workers who would rather not have their employer plant a tiny computer in their bodies will instead be issued a wristband or ring containing the technology.

We’d like to know what you think?

Would you get microchipped and have your financial, personal or otherwise other sensitive information such as passwords stored “in” you?

Not us.

For us, it will be cold day before anyone puts a chip into us for any reason and certainly not for such trivial life needs as opening a door or buying a bag of Cheetos.  Thoughts? Chime In.
