666 | Mark of the Beast
The Bible prophesies a time for the near future when a person will need a mark in his hand or forehead in order to buy or sell. The prophecy is 2,000 years old, but the technology to actually implement such a system is only becoming available right now.
A man who implanted a microchip containing his airline booking details into his hand was able to use it to pass effortlessly through security to his flight.
Andreas Sjöström, vice president of digital for technology consulting company Sogeti, had the near-field communication chip (NFC) about the size of a grain of rice injected into his hand with a syringe, before using it at Stockholm Arlanda Airport to pass through security and board his plane.
Sjöström uploaded his Scandinavian Airlines EuroBonus member ID to the xNT implant and using NFC readers in the Swedish airport was able to register his boarding pass and passport by simply pressing his hand to a scanner.
Uploading a video of his effort to Youtube, Sjöström explained: “A few weeks ago I had an NFC chip implanted into my hand, just beneath the skin. In this video I use the chip to pass through Stockholm Arlanda airport, through security, at the lounge, and finally through the gate to the aircraft.”
