Microchips in the skin - level 2

Microchips in the skin - level 2

11-03-2015 07:00

An office in Sweden is doing something unusual by implanting microchips in its workers. With the microchips, the workers can open doors, share contact information and use the copy machine. One worker said that it was scary but exciting.

The workers get the microchips only if they want to get them. The boss of the office said that the microchips also could be used for making payments or sending information to your doctor. He said that only you grant access to the people and the places you send information with the microchip.

Difficult words: implant (to place inside the skin), microchip (a very small electronic part that normally goes inside computers and other electronics), grant access (to allow someone to get something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
