Hey parents, don't want to drag your kid along when you go shopping nowadays? Here's an "easy" solution: Why don't you just tag em and leave em behind?

Wow! Still thinking it can't happen here? Look how easy it's gotten. And how quickly some are "buying" into it. Just food for thought.

It's a wristband that can be taken off.

VeriChip's "Hugs" Infant Protection System

by Donald Melanson, posted Jul 20th 2005 at 1:50PM
Information Week reports that VeriChip's RFID-based "Hugs" Infant Protection System sounded an alarm last week when the parents of an infant tried to take their baby out of the hostipal without authorization—security officials were then able to stop the parents before they were able to leave the hostipal with the baby. It's not clear if this is the first time the system was succesfully used or not, but it's currently deployed in some 900 hostipals in the U.S. In addition to preventing abductions, it's also designed to prevent accidental mismatchings. Man, they're totally wrecking on the premises for future Disney kids films, dude—the switched at birth plot device is like, classic.


This is "version" is already in use.

Oh.. and the cute little chip in the picture.. is in a bracelet.. thats put around the infants ankle.

nothing implanted...

why might you ask aren't they implanted?

1. Because that would be stupid
2. Because it introduces risk to a newborn
3. But the best of all.. there are no $$'s involved for the hospital.

so instead.. the hospital provides.. you guessed it..

a simple.. non-evasive.. non cutting.. non implantable.. bracelet.

Very similar to what you might find at .. six flags.

Wow - you are really obsessed with this RFID crap aren't you?

At the entrance to the Sea Serpent playground, each child is assigned a wristband in the form of a plush toy lion. Inside the wristband, according to Charles Sturman, Ubisense's marketing VP, is a Ubisense ultra-wideband (UWB) battery-powered RFID tag. The parents are given a ticket with a number corresponding to that child's unique ID number.

As a child plays, the wristband transmits a stream of extremely short 6-to-8 GHz signals encoded with that child's ID number. The signal is picked up by several of the 20 RFID readers deployed throughout the playground. The ID number and transmission strength are forwarded to the store's back-end system via an Ethernet connection. Ubisense software interprets the data as it is captured, then calculates the child's location within 5 centimeters (2 inches) by measuring the tag's elevation and angle of transmission, as well as the transmission's time distance of arrival (TDOA) at several readers.
This is a battery powered tag in a wristband.

This is the same technology they use to monitor someone under house arrest by an ankle bracelet or wrist band.

The key here is it is BATTERY OPERATED hence if you are implying an RFID chip to be implanted, there will be two wires going into your head or wrist to power the chip.

Like a sim card in your cell phone, or a memory flash card in a camera; do you think that the size of the card has anything to do with the actual size of the chip itself?

No!

The card imbeds the conductors that come from the chip to contact points that are in your cell phone. The chip itself is very very small.

This RFID chip will NEVER be implanted by any government in the human body. Even if it were done, (via hyperdermic needle injection), it can be removed/reversed.

You really should click through your links you post and get to the source document to get the truth.


This is twice I have called you on this.

You can call me all day long...............WATCH! This RFID chip will NEVER be implanted by any government in the human body. Even if it were done, (via hperdermic needle injection), it can be removed/reversed.


Okay!
