ID, wallet, keys all in your hand: Sweden moves into the future with microchipping
Imagine carrying just about everything you need beneath the surface of your hand - your wallet, keys and ID, all in a microchip. That’s reality in Sweden, as some early-adopters implant the tiny devices beneath their skin.

I'm not sure how to feel about this. Something makes me feel uncomfortable about this new tech. How about you and why do you?

Great!

Anyone or organization can read all your information and know just where you are, if they the proper equipment. That could include governments and criminals.

Kind of the way I felt. Too much big brother willingly given away by people fascinated by tech.

Nothing like giving every lowlife scumbag thug AND governments the ability to know everything there is to know about you.

By the way, if that technology did become prevalent, what would there be to stop the lowlife scumbag thugs wherever they are in the world from simply killing you and cutting off your hand to access the local ATM or other bank info?

Even without providing such easy access, it's difficult at times to stay ahead of the thugs and government.

I just had a good debit card (chip) declined at a gas station. How many eggs do I want to put in a flimsy basket?

Better make sure the microchips are not made in China, or Xi Jinping is going to be watching everything you do and say, and in fact everyone near you as well.  LOL

I don’t like the idea. Somebody might chop your hand off.

They may have invented the idea.  But keep in mind that I'm a movie buff, and the more recent rendition of The Manchurian Candidate, starring Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep uses the concept of inserting a microchip into the brain a person in order to be able to control them.

The reason that the human race is headed to a dystopia is because no matter how bad or inhumane an idea is, if it is technologically possible and there is a buck to be made, it will be brought to practical use and advertised and sold as a great boon for humanity. 

Human beings will be turned into robots because it can be done and money will be made. Nothing will stop it.

Looks like we have some technophobes. It won't be long and soon some of you incels will have robot sexual partners. Technology conquering the impossible. 

You won't be complaining then will ya?

It's going to be hard for any of us to compete with robotic sexual partners. They'll always be in the mood and they'll mow the lawn and clean the gutters and do every other chore we'd rather not do.

Years back there was an episode of the 1995 version of the Outer Limits named "Stream of Consciousness" that entailed everyone being made capable of accessing and being accessed by the internet. (AKA... "the stream")  

Due to a brain injury, Ryan Unger cannot enjoy the benefits of a neural implant that allows other people to tap into The Stream—a direct connection into all human knowledge. He tries, unsuccessfully, to keep up with everyone else by using a long-forgotten skill: reading books. For the human race, the Stream has been erroneously programmed to crave information instead of knowledge. Soon, it begins to turn the human race into its slaves to attempt to locate and process every single bit of information, a process that will lead to the human race's extinction as people stop doing everything to obtain the desired information. Ryan's injury keeps him from falling under the sway of the Stream, leaving him the only person who can stop it. The Stream will not allow itself to be shut down, however, and it commands the humans under its control to defend itself from Ryan. In the end, Ryan succeeds in shutting down the Stream and saving humankind. Cut off from the mental crutch humanity has used for so long, Ryan finds himself needing to teach humankind the old ways of acquiring information again—from books.

While a hive mentality may be good for humanity in the long run, I have no desire to lose my individuality being the caveman that I am.  I wouldn't do well as a member of the "Borg Collective."  I see a double edge sword with this implanted chip technology.
