GoMN went to River Falls, Wisconsin, Tuesday to visit Three Square Market – where employees volunteered to get RFID chips implanted into their hands.

Check out the video above to see what the chips do, and how they get into someone's hand. 

Some of the reporters there volunteered to get one themselves. (We were a hard pass – sorry.)

And if you want more info, we answer some of the big questions in this post, including whether it can be used as a GPS and what it's made out of.
