A Swedish rail line is allowing passengers to board the train by scanning their biometric microchip implants

Swedish biohackers with biometric implants can now use their microchips to pay for train fares. SJ, a Swedish rail line, is allowing passengers on board by scanning microchip implants. There are currently approximately 2,000 biohackers in Sweden, and SJ estimates that about 10% of them will start using the service. Customers will still need to buy tickets online through the SJ website or mobile app, but their membership number, linked to their tickets, will simply scan through the microchip. A SJ spokesperson told The Independent, “This is an interesting project that gives us ideas of how to enhance the digital customer experience even further.”
