What's possible using RFID technology?

Graeme K. Le Roux in Network Computing Asia: Tagging the future with RFID (via RFID Gazette)

How would you like it if a stranger walked up to you in a public place and handed you a list of everything you were wearing, everything you had in your pockets and the complete contents of your wallet including the number and denomination of the bank notes in it? You’d probably be horrified.

On the other hand, wouldn’t you like to know that the meat you eat was of the highest quality and could be guaranteed disease free because it could be tracked back to the paddock the animal came from? Both are technically possible via the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). [...]

Although we've debunked the RFID-dollarbill story in the past, there is nothing to say it, and many of the other above scenarios, can't be a possibility in the medium to far future.
