RFID - Revolutionary technology !

RFID refers to the technology that uses devices attached to objects that transmit data to an RFID receiver. These devices can be large pieces of hardware the size of a small book like those attached to ocean containers or very small devices inserted into a label on a package. RFID has advantages over bar codes such as the ability to hold more data, the ability to change the stored data as processing occurs, does not require line-of-sight to transfer data and is very effective in harsh environments where bar code labels won't work.

For the past 6 months, lot of companies in silicon valley working on RFID were able to get VC funding.verichipcorp is one such company which has applications from Infant protection to Vibration Monitoring

From the US State of Virginia RFID enabling their drivers license to Walmart have kicked off the trail and implementation of this revolutionary technology.
