Microchips in the skin – level 1

11-03-2015 07:00

An office in Sweden does something very different. It implants microchips in its workers. One worker thinks that this is scary and exciting.

The workers use the microchips to do things. The microchips open doors. They share contact information about people. They run the copy machine.

The boss at the office likes the microchips. He says that they can do even more things. They can send information to doctors. Only you choose where to send the information from your microchip.

Difficult words: implant (to put in the body), microchip (a small electronic part), exciting (when you feel very interested in something),

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

Would you get a microchip in your body?
