As I have reported in the past, the chip batteries have failed and caused severe burning in the recepient. Then you have the problem with the body recognizing it as a foreign invader and attacking it causing health issues to arise. Aside from that, there is the problem of government spying that can be done. Don't fool yourself by saying they wouldn't do that. If the government has no problem with putting video and audio in the street light poles, the traffic light poles, drones flying quietly over your house, video and audio in your smart TV and other technology in your home, don't think for one minute they won't use it for spying on you and your whereabouts. For those who do not know anything about this spying the government has been doing on it's citizen, I suggest you use your computer to "google" this issue and wake up now!!! There is so much more they can do with this technology TO you rather than FOR you that you will find out in your google search. Wake up America and world, your snoring will lead you into a situation that you will regret! Open your eyes to what is really going on in this wicked world!! It's not what it seems to you...that which you think the world is like is only an illustion to control you. Once you educate yourself on the real world, you will wonder where you have been all this time.
A man who implanted a microchip containing his airline booking details into his hand was able to use it to pass effortlessly through security to his flight.
Andreas Sjöström, vice president of digital for technology consulting company Sogeti, had the near-field communication chip (NFC) about the size of a grain of rice injected into his hand with a syringe, before using it at Stockholm Arlanda Airport to pass through security and board his plane.
The technology has been used before to make digital payments, control a mobile phone and unlock doors, in the same way contactless payment cards work. All it requires is a scanner to link up to that is compatible with the NFC.
Sjöström uploaded his Scandinavian Airlines EuroBonus member ID to the xNT implant and using NFC readers in the Swedish airport was able to register his boarding pass and passport by simply pressing his hand to a scanner.
Uploading a video of his effort to Youtube, Sjöström explained: “A few weeks ago I had an NFC chip implanted into my hand, just beneath the skin. In this video I use the chip to pass through Stockholm Arlanda airport, through security, at the lounge, and finally through the gate to the aircraft.”
However, he was keen to temper expectations of the technology becoming the norm: “This is just an experiment with no plans of actual public implementation… When travelling, you are always required to provide a valid ID when requested.”
A tweet from Lufthansa seemed to echo such sentiments, responding to a customer who said that travelling with a NFC implant “is nothing I plan to do anytime soon”. The airline responded: “Neither do we!”
The microchip came from an American company called Dangerous Things. Its CEO, Amal Graafstra, told Mic, an American news website, that the trial was part of Scandinavian Airlines’ aim to further innovate its customer experiences, which currently includes an NFC-readable sticker that holds a passenger’s details.
Kits containing microchips, surgical gloves and syringes can be purchased from Dangerous Things, which specialises in "biohacking" on the internet, with instructions available online as to how to implant a chip in your hand.
Sjöström said: “The biggest surprise was the feeling of being able to identify myself without anything other than my body.

“I didn’t have to pull out anything. It gave me a new sensation, sort of a pre-notion of what it will be like in the future when we don’t have to reach out with physical objects to accomplish things.”
“I’ve tried it with public transportation solutions, I’ve connected it to NFC-enabled door lock systems in offices,” he added. “I’ve succeeded with some and not with others. But if no one experiments, no one will find this out.” ( Source )
