Implanted Microchips Common As Cellphones Within A Decade
THE AGE SNIP: Forget mobile phones as the hottest new media technology - for anyone under 30, handsets as we know them will be gone in 20 years. The world's tech-savvy youngsters will be using microchip implants to communicate and transact.
Last April, Barcelona's Baja Beach Club began microchipping its VIP nightclub members, to let them into exclusive areas and clock up drinks and food via a chip implant in the arm produced by VeriChip Corporation. Within a decade, Mr Grulke (pictured) says, microchips will be common. Already two scientists at Britain's Warwick University have chips embedded under their skin that let them send emails just by thinking.
"Twenty years from now, we (older generations) will still hate it, but kids will never know a world without it."
The arrival of the hip, young microchippers is only the start of radical industry-changing trends that Mr Grulke says big companies are struggling to address because of their reluctance for "radical innovation".
For years many predicted that the government would use a stage-managed crisis to force people to take the chip.
Over the past decade we've seen the propagandists chip away at rational people's natural revulsion at the implantable microchip, first by introducing it for lost pets and then for lost children. Child abduction figures, which in fact have been steadily falling since 1979, were hyped in the summer of 2002 as a test run to see if people would willingly turn to the chip.
It seemed to have some degree of success. A July 2004 MSN poll showed that 20% would happily take an implantable microchip.
Government workers in Mexico are being forced to take the chip or lose their job. Staff of Mexico's attorney general (pictured) had to take the chip in order to access secure areas.
However, the tactic guaranteed to have the most success is simply to sell the chip as a fashion statement through youth culture. As mentioned in the above article, nightclubs across Europe are already using the chip to access VIP areas and automatically pay for drinks.
Conrad Chase, owner of Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, was told by the Verichip CEO that there was a plan to use the VeriChip as a global implantable identity system.
Over the next few years you will only see the marketing of techno-slavery increase. Football players will be implanted with the chip to track their movements around the field and their heart rate. The MTV 'Cribs' show will feature the coolest rap stars opening garage doors, car doors and fridges with a simple thought, now that they have the chip.
Everyone will want the chip. Your child will be made to feel socially inadequate if they don't take the chip.
Where did all this begin?
By pure coincidence (ahem) IBM, the company behind Verichip, the major retailer of implantable chips, also ran the cataloging system used by the Nazis to store information on Jews in Hitler Germany. Something tells me we should be a tad more concerned about that than who's going to win American Idol.
