Live Human Under-Skin Chip Implantation Takes Place At Barcelona


03/08/2019


Would you like to have a chip inserted under your skin to facilitate your digital life? Hear about a live implantation procedure.



On Monday, March 3, 2019, during a trade in Barcelona, a man came up on stage as a volunteer for live chip insertion under his skin. Meanwhile, yet another man, who had already underwent the chip insertion procedure, demonstrated the benefits of it as he was able to pay “with it using his smartphone”.
 
The above mentioned chip is was a “radio frequency identification” chip, in short known as RFID chip. Edgar Pons was the person volunteering for the live implantation procedure and he informed that his decision was made as the chip would contain credentials which would act like keys to open his house door. In his words:
“It is super, for me, very useful, because I have an automatic house.”
 
Further, counting on the benefits of this procedure, he also added that he would also be able to “withdraw it (the chip) very easily, simply making a little cut and pressing it”.
 
While, Pons was undergoing the implantation procedure, Alex Rodriguez Vitello, who is an engineer, explorer curator as well as a physicist with the company of Alpha based out of Barcelona, was quoted stating:
“The chip is the size of a grain of sand or two and it’s covered in a material that is biocompatible so our body doesn’t degrade it over time.”
 
The live insertion presentation took place in the “Mobile World Congress” which was organised by “Spanish bank Sabadell”. Moreover, Pau, the person who had already undergone the implantation earlier, was also present at the event and demonstrated how he made payments through it by “placing his smartphone over the skin covering the chip”.
 
And a Financial Services’ Manager of Sabadell, Anna Puigoriol said:
“(What) we have been seeing now is what the future of payments could be”.
