A U.S. company, Three Square Market (32M), is set to take a daring leap into the sci-fi world by offering “free microchipping” to its employees, a move that will let the “cyborgs” access machines and open doors automatically with just a wave of a hand.

The company believes that Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology, powering the microchips, will eventually be a standard method for identification, authentication and transactions at airports, shopping places and other public venues, writes Live Science.

While the dawn of this technology could simplify office lives of employees, privacy concerns loom large with a cyborg implant inserted in one’s body, notes New Atlas.
