You know damn well ever since that genius implanted himself with an RFID chip, you’ve been wanting to do it to. Not that we’re condoning surgical practices, but if you want to become more familiar with RFID and how it works, ThinkGeek was selling a kit with lots of RFID tags and a USB RFID reader for your tinkering pleasure, but is currently sold out. From the product description:
Depending on who you ask, RFID technology is either the “Mark of the Beast”, or a global panacea destined to rescue the grocery stores and Walmarts of the world from shoplifting. But any good geek knows that RFID is nothing more than tiny microchips powered by RF induction that store and broadcast a small bit of data. Want to learn more? Rather than rip apart your passport you can pick up this nifty RFID Experimentation Kit with over a dozen types of RFID tags, a USB based RFID reader and instructions for tons of insidious RFID projects. You even get a cool bio-implantable type of RFID Tag which you should never ever load into a blowgun and implant in any of your coworkers because it’s not surgically sterilized.
They include some projects you can do, such as logging into Windows XP with RFID, an RFID door lock (sweet), and an RFID-enabled safe. More kits will be available come late March, so pre-order now to guarantee one.
