Wisconsin Company To Implant Microchips In Employees | - 0 views

    "There's no GPS tracking at all," he said.

    No one who works at Three Square Market is required to get the chip implant."

Thousands of bees get RFID chips to track why they're dying off | DVICE - 0 views

    "Five thousand bees will be fitted with the tiny 2.5 mm square RFID chips, which will allow the scientists to track their movements much like a toll tag on your car lets the roadway authority know when you drive past a certain point. Bees tend to fly in regular repeatable patterns, so any changes in their activity will be easy to spot. To tag the bees, they are placed in a refrigerator to make them immobile, then the tags are simply attached with adhesive. The researchers say that the tag has no effect on a bee's behavior, but how would you like to have a big square chip glued to the back of your neck?"
