We are all getting chipped, sooner or later

While USA Today notes that the chipping of employees at a Winsconsin company was more of a publicity stunt than anything else, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Noelle Chesley believes that getting chipped "will happen to everybody."

“It will happen to everybody,” says Noelle Chesley, 49, associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. “But not this year, and not in 2018. Maybe not my generation, but certainly that of my kids.”

Gene Munster, an investor and analyst at Loup Ventures, is an advocate for augmented reality, virtual reality and other new technologies. He thinks embedded chips in human bodies is 50 years away. “In 10 years, Facebook, Google, Apple and Tesla will not have their employees chipped,” he says. “You’ll see some extreme forward-looking tech people adopting it, but not large companies.”
