Be Afraid: Powder-Sized RFID Chips

Source Link:

Everyone's so paranoid about the RFID chips that are already in place in so many parts of our lives, so here's an item (via Engadget and Pink Tentacle) about Hitachi's new powder-sized RFID chips to make us even more scared of Big Brother (or little-Brother-ID thief).

Why hasn't anybody responded to this?

This is another sign of the end times.

Nice Find!

The original head line is in the Yahoo front page dated; Feb 23, 2007.

But the actual story itself (from that Yahoo from page link) is dated Feb 16.

I know the rule that any breaking news, has to be from the last 48 hours, I just did not notice the date in the actual story which is; Feb 16 2007

I am not sure if this is still a valid breaking news.

Very interesting anyway.

TOKYO - Tiny computer chips used for tracking food, tickets and other items are getting even smaller. Hitachi Ltd., a Japanese electronics maker, recently showed off radio frequency identification, or RFID, chips that are just 0.002 inches by 0.002 inches and look like bits of powder. They're thin enough to be embedded in a piece of paper, company spokesman Masayuki Takeuchi said Thursday

Well it, like alot of technoogy has positives and negatives.
It can be used for good, or for nefarious reasons.

Personally I don't have a problem with the development of the tech-
nology, how it is used though I think needs to have alot of oversight
when it comes to corporations and government.

Hell even normal people should have oversight when it comes to it.

This sounds like micro-filaments, a spin aoff of micro-processor technology. Those at Hi-at-cha must have broke enough to figure out they are there.

What I would look for is small-convenient-looking dev.'s that have been touched up.
These micro-filaments, if aligned correctly, would make for an excellent make-shift antenna array, the desired out-effect, I'm sure.

Having this, can we still say or think that we have a "secure" place to be where no monitoring gadgets or other device can function?

The makers of this, or other should be able to come up with a "contra" device similar to a bug detector.

Just imagine for example, the U.S. secret service has a lot more thing to worry about than the usual threats.

and so the day has finally come where even the "dust in the wind" is a programmed agent to our demise.

There is a reason why Islamic men keep veils over the mouths of their women.

My wife keeps mask over her face whenever she is out of our tent; as do I.

This evil will soon destroy itself... until then however...

Get a grip, guys. They're small but "powder" is a bit of an exaggeration.

More to the point, they require attachment to an antenna. You have to bond them to some sort of E-field antenna large enough to be useful at 2.45GHz.

That's not going to be microscopic.

Next, they're E-field parts, so they're only good for external use. You can't "implant them".

And they're pretty much brain dead, they don't even have collision avoidance, so you can't separate out a group of them.

Last but not least, they don't have much range. Mu didn't have much range either. Less than other E-field parts, maybe 10 inches with a good antenna.

They're good for POS terminal use, and that's what they're intended for.
