The developer of an implanted microchip that is linked to a COVID vaccine passport says that mass chipping of the public as a means of verifying compliance is happening “whether we like it or not.”
Dsruptive Subdermals developed a scannable implant about the size of a grain of rice which displays COVID-19 vaccine compliance information when scanned. The microchip, which will be injected under a person's skin, will contain all 'relevant' information about a person with the idea being sold as another 'convenience'.
Despite widespread criticism based on fears of a dystopian lurch towards a Big Brother society, the managing director of the tech start-up brushed off such concerns during an interview with the Express.
“This technology exists and is used whether we like it or not,” said Hannes Sjobald.
“I am happy that it is brought into the public conversation,” he added. “New technologies must be broadly debated and understood.”
Sjoblad dubiously claimed that the chip could not be used to track a person’s location, asserting, “They can never tell your location, they’re only activated when you touch them with your smartphone, so this means they cannot be used for tracking anyone’s location.” But similar technology developed by other scientists already can.
Sjoblad claims that the goal of his company is to work with governments to “transform healthcare on a global scale.” Sjobald said the true purpose of the chip, is to act as a medical ID card to determine if a person is allowed to enter a cinema or a supermarket.
“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 said.
No doubt that within a few years the media will call anyone who opposes such a move as “dangerous, anti-chip conspiracy theorists.” Extremist luddite anti-chippers will presumably then be denied the right to a social life, visit supermarkets or enter the workplace. What were in 2020 all called 'conspiracy theories' should now just be called 'spoiler alerts'
