The Director of DSruptive Subdermals, a tech company based in Sweden, has lashed out at critics who say that his company’s new implantable microchips are “invasive.”
Hannes Sjoblad said that the company’s chips here now “whether we like it or not,” and that people need to just accept them.
Sjoblad said: “This technology exists and is used whether we like it or not. I am happy that it is brought into the public conversation.
“New technologies must be broadly debated and understood,” he added. “Smart implants are a powerful health technology. That is what we are building at DSruptive and our goal is to transform healthcare on a global scale.”
The chip, which is only the size of a small grain of rice, can store not just an individual’s covid-19 vaccine passport but also private medical information and cryptocurrency.
In an earlier interview, Sjoblad explained: “Implants are a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things. Right now, it’s very convenient to have covid passports always accessible on your implant.”
Currently, the implant is designed to be implanted just beneath the skin in a person’s arm or hand, however, it can probably be inserted anywhere. It measures two millimetres by 16mm in size.
“Look, I’m as pro-vaccine as anyone around … AND I’m pro-vaccine passport (on a voluntary basis only), but this just plays into the narrative of ‘they want to track you’ conspiracy theorists,” admitted one of Sjoblad’s critics on Twitter.
It is worth questioning what other information these chips can contain and track beyond financial and medical data. When you really think about it, it is concerning how invasive this technology is and has the potential to be: It could lead to the government directly tracking the movements of a chipped citizen.
Sjoblad says that the chip’s design allows for “always accessible” information by “anyone else, really, who wants to read me.”
“For example, if I go to the movies or go to a shopping centre, then people will be able to check my status even if I don’t have my phone,” he added in the interview.
While Sjoblad insists that his company’s microchips are not tracking devices, he did admit that they are easily activated by external devices as simple as a smartphone.
“They don’t have a battery,” he says about the chips. “They cannot transmit a signal by themselves. So they are basically passive. They sit there asleep.”
