Radio frequency identification now belongs to the masses, and it lets you control all sorts of things. Like access to your front door. Or valuables in an RFID-enabled safe. You can corral your stuff within an RFID-monitored perimeter, or build a shelf that tells you when you’re out of hot sauce. This book shows you how, with step-by-step instructions, illustrations, photos, and a list of the tools and tech- nology you need for every project. It even supplies the lowdown on read/write tags and—for the truly extreme—implantable chips.
