This was according to Hannes Sjoblad, the managing director of Dsruptive Subdermals, a company based in Spain that has already developed the chip. Dsruptive Subdermals is marketing the chip as a way of having a COVID-19 vaccination status proof within your body.
The chip, which is the size of a grain of rice, can be implanted under the skin. It will show the details of a vaccine passport when it is scanned. (Related: Microchipping technology can track your COVID vaccination status (and other digital details) with a simple phone scan.)
Sjoblad said that it is conveniently programmable to show other things that the user may need. It applies the same technology that has been used to monitor the whereabouts of house pets. Sjoblad, however, explained that the chip is not designed to track you but only to give out information that you want to have easily available at all times.
"This technology exists and is used whether we like it or not. I am happy that it is brought into the public conversation," Sjoblad said.
Sjoblad is a "biohacker" and co-founder of BioNyfiken, a Swedish association of biohackers that works to widen access to biotechnologies for the people of the world. Each implant costs around $112.
According to Sjoblad, "new technologies must be broadly debated and understood" and "smart implants are a powerful health technology."
"If you understand how these implants work, they don't have a battery. They cannot transmit a signal by themselves. So they are basically passive. They sit there asleep," Sjoblad explained. "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."
Sjoblad also said that the device is easy to update and you can use an app on your phone to change what is on the chip. He added that new info can be placed in the chip every day.
"I have a chip implant in my arm, and I have programmed the chip so that I have my COVID passport on the chip, and the reason is that I always want to have it accessible," Sjoblad said. "This means it is always accessible for me or for anyone else. For example, if I go to the movies or go to a shopping center, then people will be able to check my status even if I don’t have my phone. "
Dsruptive Subdermals has also made another chip implant that can measure body temperature aside from serving as a scannable temperature sensor.
Sjoblad's interest in subdermal implants started in 2014 when he arranged implant parties at tattoo parlors where volunteers came to have implants under their skin.
"I am convinced that this technology is here to stay and we will think it nothing strange to have an implant in their hand," Sjoblad told the BBC in 2014 and added that he hopes to bring 1,000 to 10,000 people on his program.
While the idea might still be very new to Americans, thousands in Sweden have already signed up to receive microchip implants. In 2018, the NPR reported that thousands of people were getting the rice grain-sized chips inserted above their thumbs, making it easy for them to get into their homes, gyms and offices or to pay for public transport via a scan or by swiping their hands over digital readers.
However, these implantable chips bring to mind a Bible verse from the Book of Revelation. Revelation 13:17 says: "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666."
These implantable chips on humans could pave the way for the "Mark of the Beast" – or maybe, they already are the "Mark of the Beast."
