    * He's probably talking about RFID in credit cards.











    A dollar collapse and we'll be good to go.

    The bottom video isn't an AD for implanted chips. It was an advertisement for advanced payment and inventory applications of RFID. The goods he took and his method of payment were RFID tagged and he just walks through. All of that was feasible without it being implanted.

    RFID doesn't automatically mean it's an implanted chip. A lot of these videos are talking about the applications and security issues of the technology.

    1. How do you know?
    2. Advanced payment but his method of payment was RFID???


    Really?
    I was only showing it's usage. I had already done a thread on RFID and included many videos so I didn't want to post the same videos again.
    Please note the title of the post and the sentence at the end.

    Interesting how once again they don't give any indication as to how the person paid -- what exactly in or on them was scanned. If it were a card, they would have shown it.










    It would be wise to watch out for this also:

    I'm a little familiar with IBM's work in this area.

    Saying the that his method of payment was RFID is like saying someone's method of payment is Internet when they purchase something online.

    The video's title said it was an implant. It wasn't. IBM's website has a wealth of information available about RFID and some interesting applications.

    Yep. Similar technology is already available in other countries. Check out NFC and places like Japan. There are lots of stores and vending machines where people can pay with their mobile.

    A lot of places use the technology for toll roads and public transportation without implants too.

    Radio waves. Notice that nobody is scanning individual items either.

    I bet you are, but I'm not going to believe it just because you say so.

    I was quoting you.

    Sorry, didn't mean "really" in that way.

    I'm talking about the fact that she paid for her scanned items somehow, but that "how" was not shown. If she paid by a card that had RFID, they would have shown the card.

    The 3rd video (inventory in the shoe store):
    I like that, butonce businesses start using it, people won't have a problem with getting an implant themselves.

    And yeah, that scanner does a great job, but how many jobs (employment) is it going to take, especially when use becomes widespread?

    They would've shown a card for something they want to be as white label as possible?

    The point is that RFID could be attached to anything. It could've been a card. It could've easily been a phone. It could've easily been a combination of a personal card or device, a smart shopping cart, and exit sensors. In fact, if you notice she simply pushes the entire cart pass the reader and the transaction completes. So the last scenario isn't far-fetched. Compare this with the other guy whose entire person passed through with his purchases.

    Asserting that it has to be an implant because they didn't show it just doesn't make sense. The point is that line of sight isn't what matters (like the traditional line featured in the commercial with the old woman).
