RFID. Radio Frequency Identification.

 

Hitachi’s new RFID chips are smaller than a flake of pepper. This opens the door to a host of new tagging options! Take a close look at your next hot dog, the black flakes may not be pepper...

In a recent update, Wal-Mart has has given some information to it's employees about how the RFID technology will be used. The Systems Bulletin was posted on July 19th 2005 and states that it is for "Pilot Stores Only". In the systems bulletin there is mention of how RFID will be used to track merchandise within the store to all for better in-stock. The system will be used to create an automatic exception in the system when an item has a quantity on the "salesfloor" that is less that what the system shows that will fit on the shelf and the item has an RFID backroom quantity. This exception would automatically be generated to tell the employee that the item needs to be stocked.

 

In Order for this system to work properly Wal-Mart has asked suppliers to tag product cases and pallets (e.g., cases of paper towels, bleach, detergent, etc.). Some items, items that have a case pack of 1, will be the actual packaging that the consumer will purchase (e.g.,computers, televisions, lawnmowers etc.). These items will have a visible EPC Global seal on the outside of the package (seen here). Items that are RFID tagged will have the EPC Global sea printed on the shelf label in the stores.

 

Wal-Mart has released a FAQ that answers some of the common questions such as, "Are we tracking Associates?", To which they answer, "RFID is being used to help manage the flow of merchandise to our Customers/Members. Associates are NOT being tracked by RFID". The documentation goes on to state that Wal-Mart is in no way using the RFID system to track customers or any people for that matter. The RFID system is simply being used to track merchandise throughout the supply chain. With the enhanced tracking of the merchandise will come better in-stock which will allow the company to grow more efficiently.

 

RFID has huge possibilities to make the retail industry more successful in allowing retailers to track their merchandise more accurately resulting in better in-stock and happy customers.

Duct Tape Wallet Blocks RFID Signals

 

Being that one of our favorite sayings over here at RFID Gazette is "Duct tape—it'll fix anything," we found this story of particular interest. With RFID chips becoming more prevalent in ID cards and credit cards, Dustin Kirk, duct tape extrordinaire, has decided to take security into his own hands by creating a wallet out of aluminum foil and duct tape. The new wallet is certain to prevent any RFID signal from being transmitted into the wrong hands.

the rest of you.....awww, it's on!

DIY RFID CHIPPING

http://www.boingboing.net/2005/12/27/diy_s...idchipping.html

 

 

12/15/04 ORBCOMM ANNOUNCES APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH VERICHIPâ„¢ CORPORATION

 

 

 

 

FORT LEE, N.J., December 15, 2004 – ORBCOMM, a global satellite telecommunications company, today announced that it has executed an agreement with VeriChip™ Corporation, a subsidiary of Applied Digital (NASDAQ:ADSX), to be its provider of satellite and telecommunication services for applications to be developed for use with the world’s first implantable radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip, also called VeriChip™.

 

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will also work together to develop and market new military, security, and healthcare applications for use in the United States and around the world.

 

VeriChipâ„¢ Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of Applied Digital. The VeriChipâ„¢ product is a subdermal RFID microtransponder that can be used in a variety of security, financial emergency identification and healthcare applications. About the size of a grain of rice, each VeriChipâ„¢ Device contains a unique verification number that is captured by briefly passing a proprietary scanner over the VeriChipâ„¢. In October 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared VeriChipâ„¢ for medical applications in the United States. VeriChipâ„¢ is not a FDA-regulated device with regards to its security, financial, personal identification/safety applications.

 

“ORBCOMM’s relationship with VeriChip™ provides yet another new and important industry that will use the ORBCOMM satellite system and its ground infrastructure network to transmit messages globally,� Jerry Eisenberg, CEO of ORBCOMM, said.

aw fuck more trouble down the pipe.

and why is this even necessary? Just seems like an electronic barcode to me.

 

Anyways, I don't suppose anyone knows how to get around this ID thing they built into printers. I read somewhere there is identifying marks on every page printed. So if I wanted to have my own wheatpaste campaign and printed my own shit they would know. nooo faaaiiiirrr.....

kinko's?

 

i would think photocopying a bunch of times would distort the code.

ya know? it would at very least give them alot more trouble than it might be worth to track you down like an animal. i heard they saw off your hands and replace them with shark fins.

i guess it varies by vendor but it's some sort of tiny dots possibly yellow in color, barely visible to the naked eye, if at all.
