Hitachi claims to have developed the smallest and thinnest IC radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip. The device measures 0.15x0.15mm and is a mere 7.5 micrometers thin. The company has been looking to create an application for the "Mu-chip" for years, which has led them to reduce the size of the chip even more.

Hitachi News Release

Of all the RIFD developments this scares me the most becuase these things are so small its probably quite possible to inject them into people without them ever knowing. While the level of producitivty achieved in the process of creating these is definately impressive the prospect of how these will be used is enough to make anyone concerend about privacy uneasy.

And here comes along a need to have us all chipped and numbered like cattle.
"Its for the fight on terror as only terrorists won't have one!, its for the fight against disease and bird flu, only illegals won't have one, its for the...." blah blah blah.
This is bad news for all people who love and cherish freedom and a bit of privacy, and a good deal for thieves with rf readers.

They didn't explicitly state in the article, but that tech has got to be passive RFID, based on their description, meaning that they need a scanner to detect it, and those usually only work in a fairly short range, like maybe 10-20 feet at most. This is the smallest RFID device that I'm aware of.
