RFID in the shed

February 20, 2004

Want to prototype an RFID solution? Here is neat kit for home-hacking...: The PhidgetRFID Kit - for reading RFID tags comes with

  • 6x 30mm disc RFID Tags
  • 2x Credit card sized RFID Tags
  • 2x Keyfob RFID Tags
  • USB cable
Similarly, Texas Instruments has a starter kit for the interested hobbyist(?) here.

Hopefully kits like this will help some enterprising soul come up with a portable RFID blocker or zapper - before they're banned.

Come on, people. You could help us protect our privacy and make a mint at the same time!

Hi ! Do you know if a volt surge will kill the RFID?

James, probably you'd have to induce the surge with a strong magnetic field (similar to how shops can burn out their RFID tags at point of purchase). But yes, I think a surge kills most electronics :-)

Hey there is a product that does kill the RFID chip but they havn't released the information on what it looks like or how it kills the chip. I wonder if it can be banned. I read this on zombiewire.com
