In 2016, a foreign game developer named Zoe Quinn recently implanted an NFC chip between the thumb and index finger of his palm. And after she implanted it, Zeo programmed the chip to send him a link to the game’s homepage in HumbleBundle. As can be seen in the video she released (starting from about 4 minutes), the entire implantation process was completed by herself with the help of a large needle tube, which can also be used in the end.


This is not the first time Zeo has been implanted in humans. Before this, she had implanted a small magnetic patch in her fingertip so that she could feel when she was close to the magnetic field. This is obviously far less practical than NFC chips, but it is also an interesting attempt to explore the relationship between us and machines. Both implants are too small to interfere with security checks, MRIs or bank cards, and neither will interfere with the other.

As for how painful the implantation process is, Zoe said that compared with implanting magnetic stickers, this time it is basically less painful. The model of the NFC chip implanted by Zoe is NXPNTAG216, which can provide 888 bytes of data transmission and can be easily used in Execute commands or share links on your phone. Zeo says she is still exploring other possibilities. And in the near future, she plans to develop a game for her implanted chip.

Biohax International Company has Implanted Chips into a Business

We have already mentioned the matter of implanting chips in the human body in previous news. At the same time, in the Nordic country of Sweden, more than 4,000 Swedes can unlock the gates of office buildings, board trains, Entering a concert hall, or exchanging personal social information by touching each other’s phones, is all possible thanks to a tiny chip the size of a grain of rice implanted in their finger.

new development

The cost of implanting the chip is not high, only about 140 euros, and some Swedish companies even provide the chip implantation service to their employees for free. Due to the great convenience brought by chip implantation to daily life, Swedes are vying to participate in “early adopters”. The company responsible for the research and development of this chip, Biohax International, said that the current supply has far failed to keep up with market demand.

Biohax International was established 5 years ago. The founder, Jowan Osterlund, used to be a body piercing tattoo artist. According to the introduction of the company’s website, the technology of the chip itself is not mysterious, and its implementation is not complicated.

Near Field Communication, this technology has been widely used in credit cards, smart phones, access control systems, etc., using microchips of NFC technology with the same technical specifications, can realize the verification and exchange of near-field contactless data information and other functions.

What is NFC? What will It Look Like in the Future?

NFC is short for near-field communication, called Near-field communication. Also known as close-range wireless communication. It allows two electronic devices to communicate at a distance of a few centimeters. It is used in contactless payment systems, just like credit cards and smart tickets.

chip cards

Not only does it have a payment function, it is also used in social networks to share contact information, photos, videos and files. Devices with NFC function can also be used as electronic ID cards. NFC not only provides simple low-speed connections, but also be used to guide more powerful wireless connections.

Newbega company has a lot of research on NFC technology, and also produces different styles of NFC products. If there is a need, you can contact us.

Sweden became the first country where chip implants became popular and used on a large scale, and there are many special reasons. As a country with a population of less than 10 million by the end of 2017, Sweden, which is located in a corner of Northern Europe, has always been known for embracing new technologies.

Many famous technology companies, such as Skype and Spotify, are based there. The support and promotion of the technology industry are inseparable. As early as the 1990s, the Swedish government invested heavily in Internet infrastructure and gave tax incentives to companies that provide employees with home computers. It can be said that Sweden is the first in the world to contact and One of the countries where the Internet is widely used.

Under the condition of complete Internet infrastructure, Sweden has also quickly entered the “cashless era” in recent years. According to the survey statistics of research institutions, currently only 1 out of 4 people in Sweden uses cash at least once a week. According to data from the country’s central bank, Riksbank, the proportion of cash transactions in Sweden’s retail industry has fallen from 40% in 2010 to less than 15% currently.

In addition, the Swedes are open to personal information. The mobile phone numbers of Swedes can be easily found on the Internet, and the income of Swedes can also be easily obtained by calling the tax department.

It can be seen that the popularity of chip implantation in Sweden did not happen overnight, but was determined by the special Internet environment in Sweden.

People here have long been accustomed to the digitization of personal information, and have also become accustomed to paperless currency transactions and personal information. Exchanges in the digital world, so it is only natural that chip implants that change the way digital exchanges are popular in Sweden.

Summary and Outlook

Although it is highly accepted among the general public, chip implantation is still very new in Sweden. There is no national laws and regulations regulating this field——How to protect personal privacy still needs to be concerned. At present, the use of chip cards is still the mainstream of society.

Newbega company has a significant advantage in NFC technology, we have 20 years of industry experience. The company’s integrity, strength and product quality has been unanimously recognized in the industry. If you have this need, you can contact us.
