A UK TV is praising microchipping as the “future” after a British man was implanted with a bank card, enabling him to make purchases with a wave of his hand.
Pundits on This Morning, including a former British MP, praised the microchipping of 40-year-old West London resident Arnie Szoke as the future of humanity.
“‘It’s going to be the future for all of us. I think when we’re babies, like a pet, our cat has got an implant so it can go through the cat flap, and it identifies it,” said former Tory MP Gyles Brandreth.
“I want that to happen. And even in my forehead, it would light up with my name.”
Szoke’s pin-sized chip cost $350, and the implant surgery was conducted in Germany. It will need to be replaced in 2029 when it expires.
“Using the chip takes a bit of learning. It’s like a normal card, but you have to be more precise with where you tap. It means I don’t have to keep a wallet with me all the time,” Szoke said.
The technology was produced by Walletmor, a company which praised the World Economic Forum (WEF) for wanting to implant children with microchips.
In a September 1 Facebook post, the company praised the WEF.
“World Economic Forum lists problems that can be solved by implanting kids. A recent WEF article outlines the potential and value of augmented reality (AR). WEF says technology will be able to help at all stages of our life. And this applies also to… children,” Walletmor wrote.
“The chips also could possibly collect the patient’s medical data, including information on past illnesses or allergies, so that in the event of an emergency, the child will receive appropriate medical attention.”
WEF has advocated “transhumanist” ideas that promote merging advanced technologies with human biology.
Prominent WEF speaker and member Yuval Noah Harari is a loud proponent of a “complete synthesis between man and machine that creates a new hybrid species.”
