Implant parties in Stockholm with curious 30-something hipsters
A tiny microchip with the size of a grain of rice inserted under the skin can replace the need to carry keys, credit cards and train tickets. The small implants were first used confidentially in 2015 in Sweden. Now 3,000 Swedes have microchips inserted into their hands.
In the past year, the chip has turned into a kind of electronic handbag. The implants use Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, also used in credit cards, and are "passive", which means they hold data that can be read by other devices but cannot read information themselves. In Sweden, people are very comfortable with technology and I would say there is less resistance to new technology here than in most other places.
