The Human Microchip Has Arrived


This is really interesting . . . and a bit scary. Remember some years ago, when the microchip first came on the scene, people began to speculate that someday they’d have a microchip containing all your personal info that they could slip under your skin and access with a simple scanner? Well, speculate no longer. It’s here.

VeriChip Corporation is the first company to produce an FDA-approved implantable microchip for humans. Here’s what the company says on its website:

About the size of a grain of rice, the microchip is inserted just under the skin and contains only a unique, 16-digit identifier. The microchip itself does not contain any other data other than this unique electronic ID, nor does it contain any Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking capabilities. And unlike conventional forms of identification, the Health Link cannot be lost, stolen, misplaced, or counterfeited. It is safe, secure, reversible, and always with you.

They say the most common site of implantation is the back of the arm.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? There’s already been much chatter on the net about ties between this chip and the number of the beast. Who knows? Maybe, maybe not. But we’re certainly one step closer. And if this national healthcare bill goes through it’s only a small hop, skip, and jump before we’re all required to get this “grain of rice” inserted into the back of our arm. For our own benefit, of course.

Speculation again? Maybe. Probably. But it’s no longer science fiction, that’s for sure. The stage is set and the pieces falling into place.

I’d like to know your initial feelings about this chip. What do you think? Would you volunteer to get one inserted in your arm?
