We may not have our own jet packs or drive around in flying cars, but one futuristic device that is available today is micro chipping. It's been used in pets for a few years and now one company has developed them for use in the present. Basically, a chip the size of a grain of salt is inserted into a person's hand.


  The purpose is to replace the use of a variety of other items like credit cards, security key cards among other frequency based devices. One business has already adopted the use and their employees use their hands to open security doors and pay for items in the businesses lounge. According to the business the chip does not use GPS technology which is at the top of people's fears when it comes to being micro chipped.
