A prospective customer, whose company could not be named, is believed to be a major global audit company with hundreds of thousands of employees.
“These companies have sensitive documents they are dealing with,” says Jowan Osterlund, founder of biohax and a former professional body piercer. “[The chips] would allow them to set restrictions on those who are”.
The stove, about the size of a rhino, costs 150 pounds and is similar to those used for pets. In addition to restricting access to controlled areas, microchips can be used to buy food from the dining room, enter the building or access printers.
“You can not lose it, you can not let it go, it does not forget. It will always be an ultimate backup,” says Osterlund. The microchips use close field communication – the same technology found in contact-free bank cards.  In Sweden, approximately 4000 citizens are captured, of which 85 of the 500 employees of Tui travel operator
Osterlund said he was aware that not everyone would be eager to get an implant first.
“It is a learning curve” he said. “If this came from a government, I would be like yes, you know what, no, it will not happen. We are a private actor, we do this with our society, for our society. “
Last year, Hampshire-based entrepreneur Steven Northam became the first person in the UK to be provided with a microchip.
Like Biohax, he offers the service to companies and individuals through his company, BioTeq.
” It can get big impact on society and business, “he said.” In the future, we are likely to have one. “
