“It was fun to try something new and to see what one could use it for to make life easier in the future,” Ulrika said to South China Morning Post. She also said that she felt nothing but a slight sting when the chip, which has the same size as small rice grain, was injected into her hand.
Ulrika and 3000 other Swedes are using their chip on an almost daily basis. With it, it is also possible to book train tickets in Sweden. SJ, the Swedish national railway company, already has 130 users that have made reservations through the futuristic chip.
We are excited to see how fast this technology evolves and how many users SJ will have in the next couple of years!
