Tag, you're it

Do you constantly forget your passwords? Want to just wave your hand instead? No problem. Insert a tiny radio frequency identification (RFID) computer chip into your hand.

RFID is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags, which are about the size of a grain of rice. For example, an RFID tag is used in the plastic electronic toll collectors (examples: Cruise Card-Atlanta, SunPass-Florida, E-Z Pass-New York, I-Pass-Chicago).

An RFID tag is a small object that can be attached to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person. RFID tags contain silicon chips and antennas to enable them to receive and respond to radio-frequency queries from an RFID transceiver.
