Thought paperless ticketing was all the rage? Well think again because Swedish train operator SJ Railways has taken it to a whole new level with microchips implanted into the hand. Yep.
The tech works by registering each passenger with a membership number, which is stored in the microchip, and monitored and updated via an app on the customer’s smartphone.
Passengers simply wave their hand as the conductor passes through the carriage – no more scrambling around and emptying pockets of old tissues in an attempt to find the ticket that must be there… somewhere.
Chips at the ready, please.
