Last month a 3 day camp in Israel brought facebook to the real word,by using braclets equipped with radio frequency identification tags that were
programed to their facebook log in page the teenagers were able to "like objects and ativities" by standing next to a reader in the camp.
The chips are tiny and work by exchanging and storing data from radio waves.
R.F.I.D have being around since world war 2 but because of dropping costs and applications sprouting everywhere ,the industry believe the time is
The new generation of chip are small enough to put on the back of a ant!! amazing!! and use little to no power!
They are already used in the livestock industry,for i.d badges,to manage inventories and to pay tolls on highways.
Marketing director Victor Vega says a lot of amusement parks are using them to track missing children.He said they are used to check if goods are
counterfeit and a lot of families use the for their children,With costs going to be 5 to 7 cents
in my opinion theywill be every where in the
next few years.
I.B.I.S WORLD industries anayst Casey Thormahlen says r.f.i.d has boomed and the next five years looks very good!
I’ve been involved with RFID for 16 years, and this is the very first year that things are exploding,” he said.
As businesses continue to embrace RFID, Vega said, he envisions retail tables with touch-screens that can tell shoppers if the shirt and size
they’re looking for is there, or RFID-equipped movie posters that interact with smart phones to access the Internet and display the movie’s
But as RFID tags become more widespread, privacy advocates are never too far behind on the discussion.
Last month, for instance, Contra Costa County began outfitting preschoolers with RFID-equipped jerseys that state officials said would help schools
keep track of kids’ whereabouts and free teachers from noting attendance on paper files
WALL MART PLAN
Wall Mart has decide to put the R.F.I.D tags on jeans and underwear,they already use them on boxes and pallets and believe that if they are in
everything it would be easier to track stock on shelfs.It would also help with check out and it would help against shop lifters.
I will never let any of my family get this chip,what does ats think of all this??
WE KNOW THEY WANT US ALL CHIPPED?? RIGHT??
