Normally when we hear microchipping, we think about the tiny electronic device put in pets that contain their owner’s information. In Sweden however, people are microchipping themselves. Jowan Österlund, the founder and CEO of Biohax International, claims to have chipped around 6,000 people in the past six years. These small chips can be used for functions such as opening doors, logging into devices, identification, and to make electronic payments. Anders Ygeman, Sweden’s minister for energy and digital development, has commented that 97 percent of all transactions in Sweden take place without a bill.
