biometric rfid keyless entry

There is some good information making the rounds of the net right now, involving a guy implanting an RFID tag in his hand so that he can automatically unlock his car door.



RFID (Radio Frequency ID) tags are very small (the size of a grain of sand) antennas that can receive and respond to radio-frequency calls from an RFID transceiver.

More info on RFID tags is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rfid . We've brought them up on the board before, in an "anti-Walmart" thread. Walmart inserts RFID tags into some of their products for tracking purposes, much to the dismay of consumer rights and privacy advocate groups.

Anyway, someone surgically implanted an RFID tag into his hand, so that whenever he reaches for his car door handle, it automatically unlocks.

This isn't the first application of biometric car entry devices. Car door locks that function on fingerprint identification are already in circulation. You might have recalled the recent news story in which a person had their finger removed, so that thieves could use it to bypass his fingerprint-identification door lock. More info on that is here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4396831.stm .

There's plenty of info on the keyless entry RFID tag guy. Here are some links:

This is ridiculous. He's too lazy and irresponible to keep up with keys and use them?

My aunt in France drives a Renault Scenic. She doesnt need a key either. What she has is a little black square box that fits in your wallet (really thin) and as soon as your near to your car it unlocks it. And when you go away it locks it. Pretty sweet deal Her radio also automatically turns on the weather channel if there's a weather warning.

I have a similar application for RFIDs at the hospital, you can imagine the problems we have with keeping track of surgical instruments in a large operating floor. There has never been a accurate count of the number of instruments we have but I have conservatively estimated it at over 50 000 individual instruments. Throw in the fact that once a pan has been wrapped and sterilized you can't see inside the package to ensure all the pieces are accounted for and in the pan, imagine how a doctor feels when he opens up a patient to do surgery and all his instruments are either not all there or a small piece critical to an instruments operation was lost.

I proposed an RFID identification program about 3 years ago with each instrument receiving a unique identifier implanted in each instrument, it's actually quite easy to do since a grain of rice sized RFID can be placed with a simple hole drilled in each instrument and then sealed with epoxy. At the time the supplier I talked with quoted me a cost of $1 for each RFID, add the cost of a scanner in the wrap rooms and other key areas and the costs were estimated at $250 000 plus the labor for implementation.

Of course I was met with blank stares from those in charge and because the technology was not well known at the time there was zero support for such a project. Unless there was a standard set for the industry to follow with harmonic frequencies set aside for each type of instrument and without instruments being manufactured with imbedded RFIDs I'm afraid the idea is dead in the water.

I believe the bible predicts we will all be identified by our left hands from birth and when that happens it is a sign of the coming apocalypse, at any rate I will continue to wear my tinfoil hat for protection and keep my left hand in my pocket.

Its the devils work I tells ya!

i agree this technology is the spawn of the devil.

but i recently implanted my micrometers with radio frequency tracking devices, and must say, i'm quite pleased with the results.

4Jaw, are you listening to alanis morrisette today?

You mean the artist formerly known as "Alanis", I only listen to her first two unknown albums when she was trying to be the next female pop star and had nice hair.

This new "Morrisette" person is not the "Alanis" I know, funny how no one remembers her previous persona, try and find an album of hers before she became the greasy hair angry rock star. It appears her publicists have done a pretty good job of erasing her embarassing "nice pretty girl" persona, you can't even find her old albums for sale anywhere.

It's all about image isn't it.

Alanis Morrisettes biography.

Now where did I put that "Lucky Star" Madonna album.

That is very interesting about using RFID's to identify a large amount of different instruments in one small area. I see what you mean about the lack of industry standards though. The system might be useful for library books -- they have unified numbers that refer to them (ISBN numbers). Or...maybe fruits and vegetables. The identifying codes for those are the same in most US supermarkets. Once RFID technology gets smaller, tiny chips could be inserted into common fruits and vegetables. Consuming an RFID tag wouldn't be any worse than accidentally eating the little number-label sticker on the skin of an apple. I wonder if those things pass through the digestive cycle without harm?

This stuff is being linked to the biblical concept of "the mark of the beast". I've even seen RFID tags being referred to as the "666 microchip"!

I don't really mean to take this off topic, but I think that thinking that RFID tags have anything to do with the mark of the beast displays a serious misinterpretation and misunderstanding of revelations. This of course is up to interpretation I suppose. This isn't aimed at anyone who has posted above, it's just because you guys have got me thinking about it now.

People seem to forget or not know that a lot of what is spoken about and understood as end times prophecy actually took place already during the history of the early church and the severe persecutions by the Romans.

Of course it also has prophetic reference to things that have not yet happened, but I don't really see how a RFID tag could have anything to do with the mark of the beast if you actually study the scriptures.

It goes along with the same line of thinking that credit cards are the mark of the beast, or bank accounts, or a whole array of equally rediculous rubbish that some people get in thier heads.

People need to pull thier heads out of the sand and actually read, and not just read but study inductively, as well as keeping a church pew warm every Sunday.

Hey 4-Jaw, were the two Alanis albums you mentioned released before Jagged Little Pill?

Hmm, I guess I did take this off topic. Sorry about that everybody!

Rich

Does this mean they can scan you post-op to make sure they didn't leave any tools inside?
