Kuwait Times - - TECHNOLOGY -

RIVER FALLS, Wis­con­sin: A Wis­con­sin com­pany is of­fer­ing to mi­crochip its em­ploy­ees, en­abling them to open doors, log onto their com­put­ers and pur­chase break room snacks with a sim­ple swipe of the hand. Three Square Mar­ket, also known as 32M, says it ex­pects about 50 em­ploy­ees to take ad­van­tage of the tech­nol­ogy. The chips are the size of a grain of rice and will be im­planted un­der­neath the skin be­tween the thumb and fore­fin­ger. 32M pro­vides tech­nol­ogy for the self-serve break room mar­ket. CEO Todd Westby says in a state­ment that he ex­pects the chip tech­nol­ogy to even­tu­ally be used in air travel, public tran­sit and re­tail. The River Falls-based com­pany is part­ner­ing with Bio­Hax In­ter­na­tional, of Swe­den, which ac­cord­ing to Three Square Mar­ket al­ready has chipped many of its em­ploy­ees. — AP
