I saw that Amazon is opening new Amazon Go stores that are going to set the standard for stores in the future where you can skip the checkout and you simply grab what you want and it’s charged to a card or an app on your person. Wouldn’t it just be easier to have, you know, some kind of microchip under your skin to just register your purchases?

  1. Hey man, I’ve been robbed at gunpoint. I’m just thinking that not only would it be convenient but it would also prevent anyone from stealing your funds!

    1. Well then they could put it on another place on my body… say my forehead! Yeah, that’s a great idea. Pretty hard to be walking around with someone else’s head huh?

  2. Cutting off arms is not likely. Any chip would be used in conjunction with a fingerprint. Disney already does this for admission — they just use a bracelet instead of an implanted chip. Whipping out someone’s arm to make a purchase would likely have you in prison in no time.

    1. You’re not the only person to suggest it. The point I’m making is that the exceptions raised are fairly absurd. The replacement of currency with such tech is a pretty ingenious solution to robbery, fraud and inconvenience. Radical change gets accepted because of its widespread appeal.

  3. It is more likely the food stamp and tanf programs will lead to the mark of the beast since it allows people to access their government free handouts. Of course this is all setting the stage for a cashless society.
