RFID goes mobile

December 31, 2005

digidenki, the blog about "some of the latest trends in japan", has interesting numbers about the adoption of mobile phones with embedded RFID chips:

The contact less IC chip which can be used for online payments, e-ticketing, identification and also normal shopping is now embedded in more than 8 million mobile phones in Japan.

What's next? Autonomous Aibo-Flashmobs with ad-hoc RFID-based peer-to-peer-coordination?
