Today we are going to see the possibility of implanting a microchip in your skin to be able to pay with it without having to carry your cards or other devices with you.
How does it work? It’s a good idea?
Walletmor. This is the name of the company that makes it. Its creation consists of a tiny microchip with which you can make NFC payments directly implanted in your body.
It is designed safely for our body based on natural components that do not pose any risk to our health. Also compatible with MRIs or other medical treatments. Its weight does not reach 1 gram so you will barely notice that you have it if you don’t touch it. It would be similar to the chip that a dog can carry.
Its operation is very simple. Once you have the chip in your hand or part of the body that you want, you only have to bring it closer to a dataphone or ATM with NFC to carry out the operations, as if it were a contactless card.
The price of the chip is €249 and you can buy it here, through its official page. Once the order is placed, they will send you the kit with what is necessary for a professional to install it for you. The operation is very simple and fast but it is not recommended to do it at home.
After that, you can download your App to synchronize your chip with the payment data that you will use and see all the information.
From there you will only have to leave speechless to all those who see you pay simply with your skin. It is something that more than 500 people have already done this last year of launch, but that you may not have had to see up close yet.
Some of these testimonials say that they did it because when they went out to a party they always lost their bag or wallet and that thanks to this at least they don’t think they are going to lose an arm, and they will always have a payment method available for any emergency. Others simply do it for convenience and not have to take out the card or mobile to pay.
The future of these chips is very broad, some are already associated with electronic locks or controls to open a house or car door, so in a short time we will be able to see much more usefulness in these and how they will become increasingly famous.
The company guarantees a duration of 25 yearsgiven that no battery and its materials can withstand that time under our body. In addition, it offers a minimum guarantee of 10 years, and since removing the chip is a matter of something simple, in my opinion it is very good.
The question is, would you wear it? Will there come a day when this is a common practice for other topics and we can be located and controlled even more than now so that they know what we do, what we talk about, or what we like, to recommend even more publicity?
