I remember reading where the goal of some large retailers is the ability
to push a cart full of goods through a reader, and have an instant
itemized total. Now that the price of RFID tags gone way down, they are
getting close to that goal. (One major retailer pushing hard for all
this has the initials "WM")
The tags will also play a big role in inventory control, and theft
prevention, as they are all read again passing out the door... where the
store computer cross checks to see if the items were in fact purchased.
Tagged items are able to be serialized and later traced all the way back
to the store (of mfg for all that matter). If the item was purchased
with a credit card, the buyer is also easily ID'd. We're not talking big
ticket items only here either, this means anything tagged, right down to
packs of gum. This traceability works as long as the tag remains
readable, and the appropriate records are kept... could be decades or
This is just a few of the highlights of RFID, go Googleing for a while
if you really want gory details.
