There are many reasons one might want to apologize to their conspiracy theorist friends, and one more has just been added to the list.
A Swedish scientist has created an under-the-skin microchip specifically to store one’s Covid vaccine passport.
The South China Morning Post tweeted a video that revealed the beginning of what seems like an episode of the Twilight Zone. But in reality, it’s a minute and 38 seconds of our worst nightmare.

Purportedly, the procedure is entirely reversible. Utilizing near-field communication (NFC), it can send data to any compatible device. Like a cell phone.
The technology was already being developed and was diverted from its original purpose to suit vaccine passports.
The video boasts that Epicenter, a Stockholm-based company, has worked on human-compatible technology for years.
In fact, their employees can choose to get a microchip for company purposes. They even throw parties when someone gets their implant.
That’s right. Employees get a party when they opt into the dystopian future.
Once fitted, employees can use their microchips for door access and buy smoothies. This has been happening since at least 2017.
Hannes Sjoblad, Epicenter’s chief disruption officer, said:
“Implants are a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things. And right now, it’s very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant.”
The video attempts to normalize this by stating that the technology isn’t new and has “grown popular” in the last decade. It goes so far as to say that a man named Kevin Warwick was the first to take the plunge and get an implant in 1998.
Nowhere in the video does it claim to be safe.
The video creates more questions than it answers: What happened to Kevin after he got the implant? What are the long-term effects of being exposed to those frequencies? What’s to stop it from being used as a GPS tracker?
The chip isn’t available for purchase yet, but the technology has already made its way to the United States.
A Wisconsin based company, Three Square Market (32M), announced its plans to microchip its employees for similar “privileges” in late July 2017.
Twitter users have already commented about Alex Jones being right, Ian Miles Cheong saying it’s “worse than a Black Mirror episode.”
Alex Jones was right + this is worse than a Black Mirror episode.

Another user pointed out a Bible quote.
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
Rev 13:16-17 NIV

While someone else thought it was a waste of technology.
Seems pointless to be used only as a vaccine passport tbh

There are no signs of this becoming mandatory, but one thing is certain: we need to stand up for our rights if we wish to keep them.
