‘The days of having to remember to grab your travel card on your way out of the house could soon be a thing of the past.
SJ Rail, a Swedish rail operator, claims that up to 100 of its customers are embedding microchip implants into their hands to pay for their journey.
The creepy technology raises security and privacy issues, as the data generated could be used to track people.
SJ Rail is not offering to microchip people itself, and passengers wanting to use the service must already have the futuristic technology.
Mircrochip implants are not new in Sweden, and an estimated 20,000 people already have them, using the devices to swipe in and out of the office, and even pay for food.’
