Not Your Daddy’s RFID Chips

Posted by direwolff on March 6, 2007

No, this picture isn’t of dandruff next to a hair follicle, but rather it’s of the next generation of RFID chips. They’re still a few bugs (pardon the pun) in terms of making antennas that are small enough to fit these which is keeping them out of production for now, but be very afraid because soon your physical privacy will be as safe and in your control as much as your virtual privacy has been over the past several decades. While it’s easy to be lulled into the belief of all of the good applications it will be put to, I see the scary spook applications as being too tempting for many our world’s governments to pass on. Yes, perhaps a bit of conspiracist perspective, but so was the thought that Americans were being spied on by their government, then that became true, over and over again.
