Implanting microchips into a human body is not a futuristic concept anymore but a reality. Recently, a British-Polish company, Walletmor, has revealed that it was the first firm to make such tech available commercially.
Wojtek Paprota, who is the founder and chief executive of the company, said that the implant can be used to pay bills wherever contactless payments are accepted.
According to a BBC report, Walletmor’s chip is made up of a tiny microchip and an antenna coated in a biopolymer — a naturally derived material comparable to plastic — and weighs less than a gram and is around the size of a grain of rice.
As per the company executive, the microchip is safe. He also stated that it functions immediately after implantation and has received regulatory approval.
