Top 10 best, worst and craziest uses of RFID

Filed under: Surveillance — ubikcan @ 4:17 pm

silicon.com publishes the Top 10 best, worst and craziest uses of RFID tags.

Among the list:

  • Japanese schoolchildren are chipped
  • Airline passengers are tagged; test scheme already underway at airport in Hungary
  • British retailer Marks & Spencer tags its clothes (bras and knickers I suppose)
  • …and of course, mandatory chips in US and UK passports (apparently already cracked!)

The news about the airline passengers met strong opposition from silicon.com readers, and they summarized the best comments here.
