Beer chip

Scottish club customers can charge drinks with microchip in arm

Jan 20, 2005 - Not everybody may know your name a Bar Soba in Glasgow, Scotland, but the cash register will. The nightclub is the first in Britain to offer customers cash-free drinking by having a microchip implanted in their arm.

The tiny digital wallet would allow entry to the club and allow customers to buy drinks on account.

The VeriChip is inserted by a medical expert and then scanned for its unique ID number as the bearer enters the bar.

Bar Soba owner Brad Stevens said, "By the time you walk through the door, your favorite drink is waiting for you."
