VOLUNTEERS IN MELBOURNE AUSTRALIA LIVING WITH EMBEDDED MICROCHIPS AS TECHNOLOGICAL PROVING GROUND FOR MASS PRODUCTION

Ten volunteers received a microchip at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne on Wednesday to mark the launch of Pause Fest, a technology and culture festival now in its eighth year. Their chips were preloaded with a three-day pass to the festival and will be programmed to unlock the door to their home, gym, or workplace, or potentially to function as their public transport pass.

THE MICROCHIP IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A GRAIN OF RICE AND USUALLY INSERTED IN THE WEBBING BETWEEN THE THUMB AND FOREFINGER USING A NEEDLE THE SAME THICKNESS AS USED IN BODY PIERCING.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: It started with a barely noticeable trickle a few years ago in remote regions of Sweden, and now is expanding to nearly every major technology-based country. Using workers as test samples, insertable microchips track their every movement, allows them to make purchases from vending machines, with all the collected data analyzed and fed into the system. Our story today tells you about ten volunteers in Australia who were chipped in connection with attending a technology convention called Pause Fest. The festival is four months away, and they will use their chips to purchase train tickets, swipe into their gym access, unlock doors, and then attend the festival all through chip access. The data collected from their four months of living with the microchips will be assembled and studied to see how this technology could be applied on a global scale. The race to see which country figures it out first is on.

It feels, says insertable technology expert Kayla Heffernan, like getting a drip. Once the needle is removed the incision heals in a few days and the microchip remains, allowing the wearer to open doors with the brush of a hand – provided they only wish to access one particular place.

Commercially available insertable microchips are only large enough to hold one access code and a small amount of other information, so the days of replacing an entire wallet and keychain with a tiny computer under the skin are not yet upon us. The future is coming, but it’s not in a rush.
