Privacy activists have confirmed that a major clothing manufacturer has experimented with the use of RFID chips in their clothing. When confronted, they refused to reveal the location where the tests were done. Another manufacturer was severely affected by a boycott when plans were revealed to supply the company with millions of RFID chips. They later stated that no RFID chips were ever embedded in their clothing.
RFID or Radio Frequency Identification uses extremely small microchips to track items from a distance. The data contained on these chips can be connected to the internet. Because of their small, convenient size, they have earned the name `spychips.` While most of these tags can be clipped off of clothing because they are attached to the swing tags in the stores, they cannot be turned off or disabled, and are therefore able to be tracked at any time. Many states have also begun issuing driver’s licenses containing these tags, apparently to make border crossings easier while traveling, but they will also enable authorities to track and trace your every move.
This technology will allow virtually anything to be connected
