Transcript for Three Square Market becomes the 1st American company to implant employees with microchips
Now to the American company sparking a fierce debate across the country tonight. A business in Wisconsin implanting microchips in its employees, in the skin of their hands. So what are they tracking and would you say yes if your boss asked you to do the same? Here's ABC's chief business correspondent, Rebecca Jarvis. Reporter: Tonight, science fiction about to come to life at Wisconsin vending company three square market. What did the employees say when you brought this idea to them? Half of them actually within five seconds says, yes. Reporter: CEO Todd Westby along with 50 employees implanting microchips, the size of a grain of rice, between their forefingers and thumbs. Allowing them to do everything from unlocking doors at work, to to even pay for snacks in the break room with a swipe of a hand. There are some reservations. There's always the fear of infection. So it's the unknown right now. Reporter: Doctors telling us, as with any procedure there are potential risks. Another concern? Employee privacy. What did it take to persuade the holdouts? We had to explain to them there is no tracking of the information. It's not gps or anything like that. Reporter: Participation is optional, and many of the employees here say they are more curious than nervous. I think it's kind of cool. Just pop it up there and it will work. Our chief business and exhibition correspondent with us now. Analysts are saying this is not just the Wisconsin company, but a debate about the future and where this could go from here. Industry experts forecast we could see these chips used by hospitals to store our medical records, even at airports to store that passport information, and that is just the beginning, David. Right in our hands. Right in our hands. I think I'll pass. I think so.
