is RFID (Radio Frequency Identification?
Invented in 1969 and patented in 1973, but now within the last 5 years their use is increasing at a staggering rate. RFID is now commercially and technologically viable, RFID tags are essentially microchips, some are only 1/3 of a millimeter across. These chips act as transponders (transmitters/responders), a constant
listening sentinel for radio signals sent by transceivers, or RFID readers. When a
RFID transponder receives it's own coded radio query, it responds by transmitting its unique ID code, usually a 128-bit number, back to the transceiver. Most RFID tags don't have batteries due to their size limitations of 1/3 of a
millimeter!. They are powered by the radio signal that wakes them up and requests an answer.
Most of these RFID "broadcasts" are designed to be read between a few inches and several feet away, depending on the size of the antenna and the power driving the RFID tags (some are in fact powered by batteries, but due to the increased size and cost, they are not as common as the passive, non-battery-powered models). However, functional read/send
capabilities of distances from sea level to an orbiting satellite are now in
use by world military.
Who is using RFID?
RFID is already in use all around us. EZPass through a toll booth,
paying for gas using Exxon Mobils' SpeedPass are just two of the
hundreds of application already in affect using RFID.
Delta Airlines is testing RFID on flights, tagging 40,000 customer
bags in order to reduce baggage loss and make it easier to route
bags if customers change their flight plans. The next step is tag
passengers to assure they are on the right concourse/gate or even
to assure they have boarded the correct flight.
Three seaport operators - who account for 70% of the world's port
operations - are deploying RFID tags to track the 17,000
containers that arrive each day at US ports. Currently, less than
2% are inspected. RFID tags will be used to track the containers
and the employees handling them.
The United States Department of Defense uses RFID in order to
trace military supply shipments. During the first Gulf War, the
DOD made mistakes in its supply allocation. To streamline
operations, the U.S. military has now placed RFID tags on
270,000 cargo containers and tracks those shipments throughout 40
On a smaller level, but one that will instantly resonate with
security pros, Star City Casino in Sydney, Australia placed RFID
tags in 80,000 employee uniforms in order to put a stop to theft.
Even as you read this the same employee ID system is being
incorporated into major industry world wide via corporate PCs,
networking equipment, cell phones, ID badges, company automobiles,
and all handheld devices.
Visa is combining smart cards and RFID chips so people can conduct
transactions without having to use cash or coins. These smart
cards can also be incorporated into cell phones and other devices.
Thus, you could pay for parking, buy a newspaper, or grab a soda
from a vending machine without opening your wallet.
Michelin, which manufactures 800,000 tires a day, is going to
insert RFID tags into its tires. The tag will store a unique
number for each tire, a number that will be associated with the
car's VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). Good for Michelin, and
car manufacturers, and fighting crime. Potentially bad for you.
Who will assure your privacy? Do you really want your car's tires
broadcasting your every move? Like when you drive across a US
border to escape Martial Law.
RFID employs a numbering scheme called EPC (for "electronic product code") which can provide a unique ID for any physical object in the world. 6 The EPC is intended to replace the UPC bar code used on products today. 7
Unlike the bar code, however, the EPC goes beyond identifying product categories--it actually assigns a unique number to every single item that rolls off a manufacturing line. 8 For example, each pack of cigarettes, individual can of soda, light bulb or package of razor blades produced would be uniquely identifiable through its own EPC number. 9
Once assigned, this number is transmitted by a radio frequency ID tag (RFID) in or on the product. 10 These tiny tags, predicted by some to cost less than 1 cent each by 2004, 11 are "somewhere between the size of a grain of sand and a speck of dust." 12 They are to be built directly into food, clothes, drugs, or auto-parts during the manufacturing process. 13
Receiver or reader devices are used to pick up the signal transmitted by the RFID tag. Proponents envision a pervasive global network of millions of receivers along the entire supply chain -- in airports, seaports, highways, distribution centers, warehouses, retail stores, and in the home. 14 This would allow for seamless, continuous identification and tracking of physical items as they move from one place to another, 15 enabling companies to determine the whereabouts of all their products at all times. 16
Steven Van Fleet, an executive at International Paper, looks forward to the prospect. "We'll put a radio frequency ID tag on everything that moves in the North American supply chain," he enthused recently. 17
The ultimate goal is for RFID to create a "physically linked world" 18 in which every item on the planet is numbered, identified, catalogued, and tracked. And the technology exists to make this a reality. Described as "a political rather than a technological problem," creating a global system "would . . . involve negotiation between, and consensus among, different countries." 19 Supporters are aiming for worldwide acceptance of the technologies needed to build the infrastructure within the next few years. 20
RFID Tracking in the news
Security Concerns Prompt Passport Redesign
By Sara Kehaulani Goo
Washington Post Staff Writer
The State Department plans to improve RFID technology that will be embedded in new U.S. passports.
Frank E. Moss, the State Department's deputy assistant secretary for passport services, said the agency will include
the new high-tech security feature, radio-frequency ID devices. RFID tags are essentially smart barcodes that replace the familiar lines with a small amount of computer memory, a tiny processing unit and a
radio sending unit. Information is downloaded into the tag and read off it via radio.
Known within the tech industry as "contactless smart cards," RFID
is used in many employee ID cards and Metro's SmartTrip cards that are passed over an electronic reader for entry to a building or passage through a turnstile. The
new passport chips will store information about passport holders and will contain digital photographs enhanced with face-recognition technology. The chips are so thin they will not alter the appearance of U.S. passports.
The radio-frequency chips will transmit data from the passport to electronic readers at U.S. airports and border crossings.
The State Department said it wants to use it because it will be a standard around the world. Moss said earlier this month that the technology will also help to process visitors more quickly at borders and airports.
"The Bush administration chose to go ahead with embedding 64KB chips in future passports, citing a desire to abide by "globally interoperable" standards devised by the International Civil Aviation Organization…"
"To address Americans' concerns about ID theft, the Bush administration said the new passports will be outfitted with "anti-skimming material" in the front cover to "mitigate" the threat of the information being surreptitiously scanned from afar. It's not clear, though, how well the technique will work against high-powered readers that have been demonstrated to read RFID chips from about 160 feet away."

Bio Chip British passports have begun
All Britons applying for a passport will now be issued with the new hi-tech document featuring a secure chip storing an image of the holder's face and "relevant biographical details".
The UK is one of more than 40 countries now introducing ePassports, which will allow the use of facial recognition technology to fight passport fraud.
Some 2.4m of the documents have been issued since production began in March.
It is hoped they will be more difficult to forge than their predecessors.
Bernard Herdan, of the Identity and Passport Service (IPS), officially announced that all production had switched to the new ePassport.
"This new design, containing a secure chip holding an image of the bearer's face and the "relevant" biographical details, is the most secure passport ever issued by the UK."
The electronic passports were introduced after the US demanded that 27 countries whose citizens enjoyed visa-free travel issue passports with a biometric chip.
US National ID in development
By Donna Leinwand, USA TODAY
WASHINGTON — With the nation's nerves still raw from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, some federal and state authorities are hoping the public is primed to accept a national identification card. But the public's willingness to trade some privacy for the promise of increased security seems to be slipping. A USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll released last week says just more than half of all adults would support a national identification card that includes fingerprint information. Two months ago, several polls indicated that more than two-thirds of all adults would support a national ID card.
"Sept. 11 made the public more receptive to an idea that in calmer times they would not accept," says Charlotte
Twight, a lawyer and economics professor at Boise State University. Her recent book, Dependent on D.C., documents the rise of federal control over the lives of Americans.
"It has come up many times in the past, and over the years ordinary Americans have expressed considerable hostility to the idea of a national ID card," Twight says.
Government officials at the Justice Department and General Services Administration have said they are working on a nationally standardized ID system that could include such security features as digitized fingerprints or encoded magnetic strips. Both would be difficult to forge and easy to check against a national database.
Meanwhile, a group of state officials wants Congress to standardize which documents are acceptable as verification of identify when issuing a driver's license.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has proposed legislation that would authorize a study on which biometric identification methods should be used as the national standard.
"My bill is about making the driver's license, which some consider a de facto national ID card, more reliable and verifiable as a form of personal identification than it is today."
Last week, the association asked Congress to pass legislation that would pay for an information-sharing network between the license agencies and federal agencies such as
IRS, INS, Social Security and the Bureau of Vital Statistics, which maintains birth and death information.
"The systems should be able to talk to one another to verify data," says Linda Lewis, association president. "We need to be able to query the INS system in real time to determine if someone is a legal resident before we issue a license."
Civil libertarians and privacy rights advocates say the public will eventually recognize that the dangers of a national identification system far outweigh any benefits.
"I think initially people thought it would solve the public safety problems," says Mihir
Kshirsagar, a policy fellow at the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a Washington group that focuses on civil liberties.
"Now people have thought about it and are less sure. There is a historical tradition in this country of preventing government access to certain areas of our lives until the government has a good reason to do so," Kshirsagar says.
Privacy advocates say an overzealous bureaucrat or law enforcement officer could use an ID card to access personal, political or religious
affiliation data under inappropriate circumstances adding to the potential for unlimited government control over individuals.
US accepts 'Big Brother' chip implant
A company in the US has been given the go-ahead to implant a chip that would contain both personal and medical information.
But it seems the permission has been given indirectly.
The US Food and Drug Administration has indicated that it does not consider the chip, made by Applied Digital Solutions (ADS), a medical device, and as a consequence it does not feel it falls under its jurisdiction, according to the company.
The chip, called VeriChip, has been criticized by anti-intrusion campaigners for its 'Big Brother' capabilities.
"With VeriChip, Applied Digital has taken another significant step in developing leading-edge personal security technologies for a rapidly evolving marketplace," said chairman and chief executive Richard Sullivan.
The company hopes to make money from the chip by selling it for about $200 (£140).
A scanner which would be able to decipher the information contained in the chip would cost between $1,000 and $3,000.
Radio Frequency Identification Tracking Device Implants (RFID)
personal identification available from reading RFID tags
The ID chip implants are using RFID TAG (Radio Frequency Identification
As a substitute for barcodes, RFID can be very effective with striking potential. RFID tags offer physical advantages over barcodes – they
do not require a direct line of sight, can have a longer read range, and can provide location-based information that barcodes simply cannot offer. RFID tags can be used as miniaturized databases that neatly encapsulate the compendium of the host’s entire life cycle, whether the host is a pallet of common auto parts, a rare California
condor or a human under security watch.
Even if an object's attribute data in an RFID is protected, if unauthorized users apply the RFID identification - or even the ID's fixed value by applying mathematical processing - to obtain the unique code (identical, for purposes of access), a quite undesirable scenario can be imagined: readers can be used for the RFID leaked into the public realm, and if the unique code becomes known, the movement of the RFID can also be understood and malicious users might create links between the tags and specific owners to track the individuals without their awareness.
The RFID industry walks a thin line related to personal privacy issues, but the almighty dollar has won out and has caused them to adapt semi-incognito production tactics.
Here's a quote below from one of the IFD TAG industry leaders, Skyetek, as to the
behind the scenes posture this industry has taken to avoid confrontations with the public over privacy issues involved with their services:
"This point is critical – to be effective outside of the supply chain and at the margins of functional processes, RFID must be present, but appear to vanish. As the market transitions to enabled applications, RFID will prove most valuable, working silently in the background to
improve information flow". Skyetek
Employee Chip Implant
US group implants electronic tags in workers. It's voluntary now, but... :
An Ohio company has embedded silicon chips in two of its employees - the first known case in which US workers have been “tagged” electronically as a way of identifying them.
CityWatcher, a private video surveillance company, said it was testing the technology as a way of controlling access to a room where it holds security video footage for government agencies and the police.
“There are very serious privacy and civil liberty issues of having people permanently numbered,” said Liz McIntyre, who campaigns against the use of identification technology. But Sean Darks, chief executive of
CityWatcher, said the glass-encased chips were like identity cards. They are planted in the upper right arm of the recipient, and “read” by a device similar to a
cardreader. “There’s nothing pulsing or sending out a signal,” said Mr Darks, who has had a chip in his own arm. “It’s not a GPS chip. My wife can’t tell where I am.”
The technology’s defenders say it is acceptable as long as it is not compulsory. But critics say any implanted device could
easily be used to track the “wearer” by GPS without their knowledge. VeriChip is the manufacturer of the chips that have been approved by the FDA.
Will Wal-Mart Track You?
Radio tags on products.
Brad Grimes is a former executive editor for PC World. He lives near Washington, D.C.
What do the U.S. Department of Defense and Wal-Mart have in common?
The two organizations have become poster children for radio frequency identification (RFID), a technology that will undoubtedly help businesses and other enterprises do a better job of tracking goods, but also makes privacy advocates uneasy. Both organizations are requiring their suppliers to use RFID tags if they want to continue doing business with them.
With RFID, tiny radio transmitters are attached to products. These tags, as they're called, emit radio waves carrying data that's read using special scanners. RFID tags are like high-tech bar codes, only they can hold more data and their signals can be received over a far greater distance.
RFID tags have the potential to invade personal privacy to a greater extent.
Will Your Underwear Give You Away?
What worries privacy groups is the possibility that RFID tags will continue to transmit information after you've left the store. At a California hearing last year, State Senator Debra Bowden reportedly asked, "How would you like it if, for instance, your underwear was reporting on your whereabouts?"
RFID tags are potentially very useful, but they could be abused. Privacy advocates don't necessarily condemn the technology; they just want government and industry to address the potential for abuse before rushing into anything.
Radio tag study revealed at Cebit
BBC News Hanover March 11, 2006
Radio frequency ID (RFID) TAGS
Vint Cerf, speaking at the Cebit technology fair in Hanover announced the coming worldwide use of ID (RFID) TAGS at a press conference by the European Commission.
RFID is a technology that puts a small amount of computer memory into a tag readable at a distance by radio.
It promises to revolutionize the way we track items - and even people, which worries civil liberties groups.
Viviane Reding, the EU commissioner behind the exercise, warned that wider use of RFID would not be allowed to undermine the fundamental liberties that European citizens enjoy.
Ms Reding said the widespread use of radio tags would tie together the internet world of cyberspace with the real world.
"We are heading toward a world in which billions of networked people, objects and sensors will report their location, identity and history," she said.

The "chip" reads brain signals
A paralyzed man in the US has become the first person to benefit from a brain chip that reads his mind.
Matthew Nagle, 25, was left paralyzed from the neck down and confined to a wheelchair after a knife attack in 2001.
The pioneering surgery at New England Sinai Hospital, Massachusetts, last summer means he can now control everyday objects by thought alone.
The brain chip reads his mind and sends the thoughts to a computer to decipher.

VeriChip Now Tracked by Global Positioning Satellite
human Implantable VeriChip is about the size of a grain of rice.
The dimensions of this initial "personal location device," or
PLD, prototype are said to be 2.5 inches in diameter by 0.5 inches in depth, roughly the size of a pacemaker. Once inserted into a human, the device can be tracked by Global Positioning Satellite technology and the information relayed wirelessly to the Internet, where an individual's location, movements and vital signs can be stored in a database for future reference.
Dr. Peter Zhou, vice president and chief scientist of Applied Digital Solutions, said: "We're very encouraged by the successful field testing and follow-up laboratory testing of this working PLD prototype. The specially designed antenna is working as planned. While reaching the working prototype stage represents a significant advancement in the development of
PLD, we continue to pursue further enhancements, especially with regard to miniaturization and the power supply. We should be able to reduce the size of the device dramatically before the end of this year."
The induction-based power-recharging method is similar to that used to recharge implantable pacemakers, the company said. This recharging technique functions without requiring any physical connection between the power source and the implant.
As the process of miniaturization proceeds in the coming months, the company said it expects to be able to shrink the size of the device to at least one-half and perhaps to as little as one-tenth the current size.
Applied said the technology it used for the device builds on U.S. Patent No. 5,629,678 for a "personal tracking and recovery
Closer to a cashless society?
The company proceeded to issue the technology in the form of a wristwatch and pager, and following privacy concerns and verbal protests over marketing the technology for government use, Applied backed away from public discussion about such implants and the possibility of using them to usher in a "cashless society."
In addition, to quell privacy concerns, the company issued numerous denials, stating it had no plans to release such an implant.
When WND reported in April of 2002 that the company planned such implant technology, Applied Digital spokesman Matthew Cossolotto accused WND of intentionally printing falsehoods.
Less than three weeks later, the company issued a press release announcing that it was accelerating development on a GPS implant.
Citing the concerns voiced by privacy advocates that government use of such devices could lead to "function creep," Cochrane added, "How much longer before implants are mandatory by law for all American citizens, and those in the rest of the world?"
Applied also markets the implantable VeriChip, a radio frequency identification chip that can carry an individual's unique identification number as well as store
unlimited personal data. In addition, the company recently unveiled in London its new Bio-Thermo chip implant, which can read and transmit a person's temperature,
blood pressure, and pulse rate, which lends to its numerous health-care
and potential security detection applications.
MIND CONTROL FOR THE FUTURE
Microchips Create Memories in Brain
Oct 29, 2004 Newswire
Scientists are now working on microchip implant technology that can create artificial memories.
Professor Theodore W. Berger, director of the Center for Neural Engineering at the University of Southern California, is creating a silicon chip implant that mimics the hippocampus, an area of the brain known for creating memories. If successful, the implant could replace its biological counterpart, in the hope that people who suffer from memory disorders can store new memories.
The six teams involved in the multi-laboratory effort, including USC, the University of Kentucky and Wake Forest University, have been working together on different components of the neural prosthetic for nearly a decade. Results of their efforts were just presented at the Society for Neuroscience's annual meeting in San Diego.
"It's a new direction in neural prosthesis," said Howard Eichenbaum, director of the Laboratory of Cognitive Neurobiology at Boston University.
Positive aspects of this new technology involve forming long-term memories to recognize a new face, or remembering a telephone number or directions to a new location, emulating the hippocampus. This part of the brain doesn't store long-term memories, but
re-encodes short-term memory so it can be stored as long-term memory.
"If you were looking at the output right now, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the biological hippocampus and the microchip hippocampus," Berger said. "It looks like it's working."
Deadwyler, a professor at Wake Forest University states,
"When the device is in place and we temporarily interrupt the normal function of the hippocampus," said Sam A. Deadwyler, "thus allowing the
neuro-prosthetic device to take over that normal function."
While this new technology holds potentially great promise for neurologically impaired patients, it does have a disturbing downside for potential abuse. Since memories determine response, the eventual implanting of false memories now becomes a future reality.
One can speculate that it could begin by eliminating prisons by reworking memories of convicts to make them "good" citizens. It can then be expanded into the ultimate government tool for mind control in the mollified society.
National ID Threatens Liberty
by Rep. Ron Paul
Washington politicians are once again seriously considering imposing a national identification card - and it may well become law before the end of the 108th Congress. The much-hailed 9/11 Commission report released in July recommends a federal identification card and, worse, a "larger network of screening points" inside the United States. Does this mean we are to have "screening points" inside our country where American citizens will be required to "show their papers" to government officials? It certainly sounds that way!
As I have written recently, the 9/11 Commission is nothing more than ex-government officials and lobbyists advising current government officials that we need more government for America to be safe. Yet it was that same government that failed so miserably on Sept. 11, 2001.
Congress has embraced the 9/11 Commission report uncritically since its release in July. Now Congress is rushing to write each 9/11 Commission recommendation into law before the November election. In the same way Congress rushed to pass the PATRIOT Act after the Sept. 11 attacks to be seen "doing something," it looks like Congress is about to make the same mistake again of rushing to pass liberty-destroying legislation without stopping to consider the consequences. Because it is so controversial, we may see legislation mandating a national identification card with biometric identifiers hidden in bills implementing 9/11 Commission recommendations. We have seen this technique used in the past on controversial measures.
A national identification card, in whatever form it may take, will allow the federal government to inappropriately monitor the movements and transactions of every American. History shows that governments inevitably use the power to monitor the actions of people in harmful ways. Claims that the government will protect the privacy of Americans when implementing a national identification card ring hollow. We would do well to remember what happened with the Social Security number. It was introduced with solemn restrictions on how it could be used, but it has become a de facto national identifier.
Those who are willing to allow the government to establish a Soviet-style internal passport system because they think it will make us safer are terribly mistaken. Subjecting every citizen to surveillance and "screening points" will actually make us less safe, not in the least because it will divert resources away from tracking and apprehending terrorists and deploy them against innocent Americans!
The federal government has no constitutional authority to require law-abiding Americans to present any form of identification before they engage in private transactions. Instead of forcing all Americans to prove to law enforcement that they are not terrorists, we should be focusing our resources on measures that really will make us safer.
We must take effective measures to protect ourselves from a terrorist attack. That does not mean rushing to embrace legislation that in the long run will do little to stop terrorism, but will do a great deal to undermine the very way of life we should be protecting. Just as we must not allow terrorists to threaten our lives, we must not allow government to threaten our liberties. We should reject the notion of a national identification card.

House approves a de facto National ID Card
Newswire Feb. 11, 2005
In apparent recognition that Federal agencies are incapable of targeting or tracking terrorists and illegal aliens, on Thursday
Feb 10, 2005, The U.S. House of Representatives approved a sweeping set of rules aimed at forcing states to issue all adults federally approved electronic ID cards, including driver's licenses.
Federal employees would instructed to reject any licenses or identity cards that don't comply with government specifications. In effect, this would give the Federal Government power to completely control Americans' access to airplanes, trains, national parks, federal courthouses and other areas controlled by the federal government.
The bill was approved by a 261-161 vote.
The measure, called the Real ID Act, says that driver's licenses and other ID cards must include a digital photograph, anti-counterfeiting features and undefined "machine-readable technology, with defined minimum data elements" that could include a magnetic strip or RFID tag.
The Department of Homeland Security would be charged with drafting the details of the regulation, placing unelected government officials in command of the actions and mobility of American Citizens.
States would be required to demand proof of the person's Social Security number and confirm that number with the Social Security Administration. They would also have to scan in documents showing the person's date of birth and immigration status, and create a massive store "so that the (scanned) images can be retained in electronic storage in a transferable format" permanently.
Another portion of the bill says that states would be required to link their DMV databases if they wished to receive federal funds. Among the information that must be shared: All data fields printed on drivers' licenses and identification cards, and complete drivers' histories, including motor vehicle violations, suspensions and points on licenses.
The Bush administration threw its weight behind the Real ID Act, which has been derided by some conservative and civil liberties groups as tantamount to a national ID card.

LONDON, England -- Worried UK Parents are asking to have tracking microchips implanted into their children
a cybernetics expert says.
Scientist Kevin Warwick from Reading University, west of London, says parents can keep track of their children with a tiny microchip implant in the arm or stomach.
"A number of families have contacted me with the possibility of using an implant for their
children," Warwick told Reuters.
The issue is set to become a controversial one in Britain with parents welcoming the idea, but civil liberties group expected to protest at the "big brother" possibilities of the tags being exploited either by the authorities or illegally.
Robotics scientist Warwick is a controversial figure already in Britain, gaining fame after he wired his own nervous system to a computer in an experiment he hopes will eventually give
paralyzed people more control over their own bodies.
"There are several options, including the possibility of using a mobile phone network to transmitting a signal and linking it to a global positioning system," he said.
The operation would involve implanting a small transmitter about one inch long into the child's arm or stomach, Warwick says.
A spate of recent abductions in the United States have put parents
on edge as they worry about their children, but Warwick believes it is for society to decide if a microchip implant is the ethical way to combat such fears.
"There are of course many more questions to be asked and I suspect there will be objections to an implant, but if the general trend in Britain is in
favor of such an operation it will be ready to go within
months." he said.
MEXICO CITY - Security has reached the subcutaneous level for Mexico's attorney general and at least 160 people in his office -- they have been implanted with microchips that get them access to secure areas of their headquarters.
Attorney General Rafael Macedo de la Concha and 160 of his employees were implanted at a cost to taxpayers of $150 for each rice grain-sized chip.
Mexico's top federal prosecutors and investigators began receiving chip implants in their arms in November in order to get access to restricted areas inside the attorney general's headquarters, said Antonio Aceves, general director of Solusat, the company that distributes the microchips in Mexico.
More are scheduled to get "tagged" in coming months, and key members of the Mexican military, the police and the office of President Vicente Fox might follow suit, Aceves said. Fox's office did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
A spokeswoman for Macedo de la Concha's office said she could not comment on Aceves' statements, citing security concerns. But Macedo himself mentioned the chip program to reporters Monday, saying he had received an implant in his arm. He said the chips were required to enter a new federal anti-crime information center.
"It's only for access, for security," he said.
Chips read by RFID scanners
Aceves said his company eventually hopes to provide Mexican officials with implantable devices that can track their physical location at any given
The chips that have been implanted are manufactured by VeriChip Corp., a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions Inc. of Palm Beach, Fla.
They lie dormant under the skin until read by an electromagnetic scanner, which uses a technology known as radio frequency identification, or RFID, that's now getting hot in the inventory and supply chain businesses.
Scott Silverman, Applied Digital Solutions' chief executive, said each of his company's implantable chips has a special identification number that would foil an impostor.
"The technology is out there to duplicate (a chip)," he said. "What can't be stolen is the unique identification number and the information that is tied to that number."
Thousands sold to distributors worldwide
In addition to the chips sold to the Mexican government, more than 1,000 Mexicans have implanted them for medical reasons, Aceves said. Hospital officials can use a scanning device to download a chip's serial number, which they then use to access a patient's blood type, name and other information on a computer.
Still, Silverman said that his company has sold 7,000 chips to distributors worldwide and that more than 1,000 of those had likely been inserted into customers, mostly for security or identification reasons.
A Florida couple and their teenage son had Applied Digital Solutions chips implanted in their arms. The family hoped to someday be able to automatically relay their medical information to emergency room staffers.
The chip originally was developed by Digital Angel Corp., which was acquired by Applied Digital Solutions in 1999.
Because the Applied Digital chips cannot be easily removed -- and are housed in glass capsules designed to break and be unusable if taken out -- they could be even more popular someday if they eventually can incorporate locator capabilities. Already, global positioning system chips have become common accouterments on jewelry or clothing in Mexico.
Jacobs, seen here with his father Jeff and mother Leslie
in 2002, made headlines when he and his family were
implanted with identification microchips.
Radio tags spark privacy worries

Radio tags are being placed in ID documents in the European Union
A threat to privacy posed by radio tags has emerged as the main fear by citizens in an EU study of the RFID tag in personal documents technology.
Unveiling the study, EU commissioner Viviane Reding said citizens needed re-assuring that radio tags would not lead to large-scale surveillance.
Radio frequency tags could take over from barcodes
"A study in GB shows that people are mainly afraid of losing control, of not being able to choose when and how they are exposed to risks of personal privacy being invaded,"
Many also wanted the ability to destroy the tags if need be.
Only 15% of the 2,190 organizations and individuals who contributed to a survey done in the EU believed that industry would do a good job of regulating how firms used RFID tags.
Euro banknotes implanted with RFID tracking chips
The European Central Bank is quietly working to embed RFID tags in the fibers of Euro banknotes. The tag allows money to carry its own history by recording information about where it has been. This technology gives governments and law enforcement agencies a means to literally "follow the money" in every transaction. RFID devices embedded in banknotes
eliminates the anonymity that cash affords in consumer transactions.
Hitachi Europe has developed a smart tag chip that--at just 0.3mm square and as thin as a human hair -- can easily fit inside of a banknote. Mass-production of the new chip
has already begun.
"Ubisense brings to life the spaces where we work," said C. Warren Ferguson, chairman and CEO of
Ubisense. "It means businesses can improve the utilization and productivity of their space. Making informed decisions and working faster, easier and safer can result in significant cost savings and increases in production."
Ubisense will demonstrate the Smart Space platform via live Webcast at 11:30 a.m. EST on Wednesday, December 15. To RSVP for the event, contact Chad Morris at Ubisense at 720.283.1557 or e-mail
Ubisense Smart Space is composed of a real-time software platform, a network of
Ubisensors, badges that are worn by people or Ubitags, pager-sized devices, which are attached to an object or asset.
Unlike location systems based on conventional radio frequency technology, which work poorly indoors because the signals reflected off walls, desks, people and equipment (multi-path) are hard to distinguish from direct path signals, UWB short duration pulses are easier to process in order to determine which is the correct signal thereby increasing accuracy and reliability.
The Smart Space technology places no limits on the size of the area covered, or the number of people and objects located, scaling easily and incrementally from a small implementation running on a laptop to a
campus-wide solution running on a cluster of Windows or Linux computers.
