A US company is offering to microchip its employees.

The chip will enable staff at Wisconsin firm Three Square Market, also known as 32M, to open doors, log onto their computers and purchase break room snacks with a simple swipe of the hand.

About 50 employees are expected to take advantage of the technology.

The chips are the size of a grain of rice and will be implanted underneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger.

Three Square Market provides technology for the self-service break room market.

Its CEO Todd Westby said he expects the chip technology to eventually be used in air travel, public transit and retail.

The River Falls-based company is partnering with BioHax International, of Sweden, which according to Three Square Market has already chipped many of its employees.
