Is this the mark of the beast?

A tech company in the US is becoming one of the first in the world to microchip its employees, it has been revealed.

The chips will enable staff members to pay for food and drink in the company’s break room, open doors, login to computers and use the photocopier.

Three Square Market, which designs software for break rooms, said that although the programme is currently optional, they hope everyone will take part.

The chips would be implanted underneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger, and will use so-called near-field communications – or NFC – which is the same technology used in contactless credit cards and mobile payments.

Todd Westby, chief executive of the firm said that the implants could unlock phones, share business cards and store medical and health information.

In a press statement, he said: “Eventually, this technology will become standardised allowing you to use this as your passport, public transit, all purchasing opportunities, etc.”

Chief operating officer, Patrick McMullan, added: “The international market place is wide-open and we believe that the future trajectory of total market share is going to be driven by who captures this arena first.”

Earlier this year, a Swedish rail company started offering passengers the option of using a chip implanted into their hand instead of a paper train ticket.

Recently, high street lender TSB announced that it was becoming the first bank in Europe to introduce iris recognition on its mobile banking app.

However, microchips have also raised a number of privacy and security concerns, after researchers at a mobile security firm called Vkansee last year reportedly used Play-Doh to collect fingerprints and unlock an iPhone.
