Lightbulb Shaping the Future

"So You Can Keep An I On Me?"..
Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a yeast in everything sandwich?.We're all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach - a chip under the skin...

M had his fore-arm injected with a microchip implant transmitter-tracking device..

The Swedish company has implanted microchips in its staff which allows them to use the photocopier, open security doors and even pay for their lunch..It is hoped that eventually around 700 employees from the Epicenter hi tech office block in Stockholm may eventually have the chips implanted into the back of their hands..The chips use radio-frequency identification (RFID) and are about the same size as a grain of rice..

When I tested my chip, I found that it was not all that intuitive - I had to twist my hand into an unnatural position to make the photocopier work.. And while some of the people around the building were looking forward to being chipped, others were distinctly dubious. "Absolutely not," said one young man when I asked him if he'd sign up.. An older woman was more positive about the potential of the technology but saw little point in being chipped just to get through a door... began to have a frightening thought: what if it was our own government we had to be afraid of?..The power of the government has been hijacked, so that the rest of us are made slaves...
