Swedish office microchips staff

Do you ever feel like work is getting under your skin? Well, a Swedish office block is taking the expression to a whole new level by offering staff the option of being microchipped.

Staff who signed up for the unusual procedure had a small glass chip the size of a grain of rice implanted into their hand.  

What fantastical benefits does the chip bring to make lives easier, I hear you ask? They can unlock the front door without a pass. Revolutionary. Oh, and they can use the chip to work the photocopier too- no more pesky buttons for them! On a slightly more exciting note, it is planned that staff will soon be able to use the glass chips to pay for edible chips in the canteen. Sounds like a whole lotta pain for not a lotta gain to us!
