The next wave of tracking.
Upon washing a newly bought pair of jeans...who's brand I will reveal at a later time, I stumbled upon this:
A close-up shot of a RFID.
Now bear with me.
These pictures are from an iPhone.
I realize that there are RFID's implanted in everything, but this was a huge shock.
This little device has a chip in it the size of a grain of sand. (pointed out with yellow arrow)
As the pictures show, its about the size of your finger.
The silver outlining panels seem to be the antenna.
What really bothers me is why these companies must track sales?
Or can the RFID be activated from outside the home?
Is this the security device?
My guess is the latter but it begs the question...
Where else are these devices found?
Next time you wash a pair of jeans or new t-shirt...
Let one of the tags wash with your clothing.
You might be surprised what you find.
