Great news, everyone: just like the coronavirus vaccine, the implantable computer chip that will track your vaccine status will be COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY.
A lot of people will choose to take the implantable computer chip so they can have a job, go into a grocery store to buy food, and have access to medical services. But it will be completely voluntarily.
A Swedish company has sparked debate after showcasing a microchip that can be implanted under the skin and scanned as proof of one’s Covid-19 vaccination status.
The microchip technology was developed by Stockholm-based startup Epicenter. The tiny chip stores a Covid-19 vaccine passport the likes of which are increasingly being mandated across the globe. It can be read by a device using a near-field communication protocol – the same tech used by credit cards and other digital payment systems.
The chip can be inserted either in one’s arm or between one’s thumb and forefinger, with the data readable through the skin. A unique code generates the individual’s vaccine passport file on a reader, as its makers displayed in the demo video distributed to multiple media outlets.
Epicenter’s chief distribution officer, Hannes Sjoblad, told the news agency AFP its microchip offered an efficient way to have one’s Covid status checked at a movie theater or shopping center without recourse to a cell phone.
“What matters to me is that the people who get chip implants, they do so on a voluntary basis,” Sjoblad said. “And because they are curious, and they want to work with this technology.”
Things are escalating so fast that some people are losing it and making pixel art about what they think it’s going to come down to.

You may live to see every so-called conspiracy theory come true.

Look! Sweden is working hard at making sure the Book of Revelation becomes a documentary as well.

(For the record, the implantable chip is only one option on the table. They can also go with biometric scanning, which would probably be more efficient.)
