Swedish company, Epicenter, has implanted microchips in its employees' hands to allow staff to use the photocopier, open security doors and to pay for their lunch.
Each microchip is the size of a grain of rice and stores personal information.
The chips use radio-frequency identification (RFID) .
Hannes Sjoblad of the Swedish bio-hacking group BioNyfiken, which implanted the chips into the Epicenter workers, told The Times: 'We already interact with with technology all the time.
'Today it's a bit messy - we need pin codes and passwords - wouldn't it be easy to just touch with your hand?
'We want to be able to understand this technology before big corporates and big government come to us and say everyone should get chipped - the tax authority chip, the Google or Facebook chip.'
Would you allow yourself to get chipped? Is technology going too far?
