i think one has to go to the linked source & read the full article.
... in part;
...The clothing, including nightgowns, [will be sold at Target stores],
and will include RFID technologies
that parents can place in doorways and windows
which will trigger an alarm if children wearing the tagged clothes
travel more than 30 feet.
this explaination does not sound so onerous, or much a sneaky tracking device
...as i was kinda led to believe.
It sounds like 'parents' can elect to buy & install
these RFID sensors
for their childrens' bedroom doors & windows...
(probably having the RFID sensors installed by proprietary & certified Target
That makes this RFID application, more of a home/family security item...
an optional and probably expensive
home security device.
Most likely to be used along with existing home intruder alarm systems.
however, as my brain races thru all the senarios, i can see that none of the
security systems prevented the Jon Bonet Ramsey tragedy...
and even this RFID concept would have been circumvented,
because the 30 foot distance for the alarm to engage was ?less?
than the distance from her bedroom door to the basement,
(an est. 20 foot away)
but the actual reason for the RFID was for the inventory tracking &
facimile rip-offs, store commerce-security, all commercial applications....
the sleepwear & safety aspect is just a 'piggy-back' application,
which will be given a minimum of advertising or promotion- - -
unless the idea takes off...then the creator and Target will ramp-up
and really push/expand the product ....
capitalism at work..(Hoo yah)
