Wisconsin company to install microchips into employees


A Wisconsin based company will install microchips into over 50 of their employees hands to improve work place efficiency.

Over 50 employees from the Wisconsin based company have agreed to installing the small microchips into their hands.

A Wisconsin vending machine company has offered its employees an option to have a tiny, microchip device installed into their hands so they can easily buy snacks, log in to computers, use the copy machine and other remote tasks.

The CEO of the company Three Square Market said Tuesday that the plan to install microchips into their employees comes in an effort to increase workplace efficiency. The optional implants of the chips are approximately the size and shape of a grain of race.

50 employees have agreed to having the microchips implanted into their skin, Tony Danna says, vice president of international sales at the River-Falls based company.

The company, which employees 85, claims it is the first United States business to offer staff technology similar to that used by contactless credit cards and chips used to identify pets.

The idea drew wide criticism from people who pointed at the possibility of internal and government tracking of employees with the microchips. However, the company's CEO Todd Westby vowed the technology would "not be used for GPS tracking".

The microchip would be installed into the area of the hand between the thumb and index finger, allowing employees
to use their hands like a credit card on vending machines, or I.D. on copy machines and other company machines.

Critics of the new microchip technology in humans include Nevada State Senator Becky Harris, who introduced legislation that would make forced installation of microchips illegal in February.

"It is possible to hack the information that is contained within the chips," Harris told a state Senate Judiciary Committee meeting at the time.

Despite the criticism, both the President and vice president of the company believe the microchips have a bright future.

"We've done the research and we're pretty well educated about this," Danna said in an interview.

Westby believes the technology will become widespread, and grow to be a popular trend among modern businesses.

"Eventually, this technology will become standardized allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.," he said.

The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice.

Westby's not too far off in his assumption. Currently, airlines like United, FlyBlue, and others are reportedly developing similar technology to implantable microchips that would allow passengers to seamlessly wave their hand, where the microchip was installed, through an electric screen that would scan the person's plane ticket, name, and match their face with their government identification card.
