People are getting implants in their hands to replace cash, credit cards

In Sweden, thousands of people are having futuristic microchips implanted into their skin to perform daily activities, replacing credit cards and cash.

More than 4,000 individuals already had the sci-fi-ish chips inserted into their hands about the size of a grain of rice — with many predicting millions joining them quickly as they hope to take it globally.

“It’s very ‘Black Mirror,’” Swedish scientist Ben Libberton told The Post of the similarity to the hit TV series focusing on futuristic scenarios.

The chips, like glorified smartwatches, help Swedes track their health and even replace keycards so that they can enter offices and buildings.

However, they have caught on in particular for allowing owners to pay in shops with an easy swipe of the hand, a large deal in a forward-looking nation moving towards the elimination of cash.

The microchips were created by former body piercer Jowan Österlund, who calls the technology a “moonshot” — and who told Fortune magazine that he’s been hit up by hopeful investors “on every continent except Antarctica.”
