Early this year workers at an office complex in Sweden made news when they agreed to have RFID chips embedded under their skin. The tags function similar to an ID badge, allowing employees access to locked rooms and verifying that they are approved to make copies with the simple swipe of a wrist.
The technology even allows them to share contacts on their smart phones. Although embedding humans with RFID is still considered controversial, its acceptance is growing. A Swiss tattoo artist says that he has embedded RFID chips into about 80 people who came in requesting them.
