An ultra-trendy company in Stockholm is offering microchip implants to its members, in order to help them open doors or operate office equipment.
The employees have tiny microchips embedded in their hands. They help with simple daily tasks like opening locked doors or operating office printers. The company claims to be the first place in Sweden to use implants on a large-scale.
