Want a RFID Chip In Your Pants? No? Well They’re Coming Anyway


Here’s an article from the BBC that (enthusiastically) announces the insertion of RFID chips in many everyday products like jeans, foods or cars, allowing the constant monitoring of pretty much everything. Sure, the article “addresses” privacy concerns (mostly downplays them) but it mainly sells RFIDs with arguments like “it could save the lives of old people stuck in a building on fire”. Most people find that inserting computer chips that can connect to the internet with personal data completely useless and, frankly, creepy. Despite this fact, there is a huge push to promote these chips and to sell them to the public.

So, here’s what the article says: Do you want old people to die in a fire? No? Well, put a RFID chip in your pants. I’m exaggerating here but, sadly, not really.

Jeans with a RFID tag

Internet of things: Should you worry if your jeans go smart?

What if those new jeans you’ve just bought start tweeting about your location as you cross London Bridge?

It sounds far-fetched, but it’s possible – if one of your garments is equipped with a tiny radio-frequency identification device (RFID), your location could be revealed without you knowing about it.

RFIDs are chips that use radio waves to send data to a reader – which in turn can be connected to the web.

This technology is just one of the current ways of allowing physical objects to go online – a concept dubbed the “internet of things”, which industry insiders have shortened to IoT.

This is when not only your PC, tablet and smartphone can connect to the web, but also your car, your home, your baseball cap and even the sheep and cows on a farm.

And as we switch from IPv4 towards IPv6, which will support some 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses, more and more objects will jump into the web.

Smart buildings and intelligent cars with assigned IP addresses are already making cities smarter – and soon enough, the entire planet may follow.

“A typical city of the future in a full IoT situation could be a matrix-like place with smart cameras everywhere, detectors and non-invasive neurosensors scanning your brain for over-activity in every street,” says Rob van Kranenburg, a member of the European Commission’s IoT expert group.

This vision might still be years off, but one by one, “smarter” cities are beginning to crop up around our landscape.

Endless opportunities

IoT advocates claim that overall interconnectivity would allow us to locate and monitor everything, everywhere and at any time.

“Imagine a smart building where a manager can know how many people are inside just by which rooms are reflecting motion – for instance, via motion-sensitive lights,” says Constantine Valhouli from the Hammersmith Group, a strategy consulting firm.

“This could help save lives in an emergency.”

But as more objects leak into the digital world, the fine line that separates the benefits of increasingly smart technology and possible privacy concerns becomes really blurred.

“The IoT challenge is likely to grow both in scale and complexity as seven billion humans are expected to coexist with 70 billion machines and perhaps 70,000 billion ‘smart things’, with numbers infiltrating the last redoubts of personal life,” says Gerald Santucci, head of the networked enterprise and RFID unit at the European Commission.

“In such a new context, the ethical worries are manifold: to what extent can surveillance of people be accepted? Which principles should govern the deployment of the IoT?”

Talking shirts

Peter Hustinx, European data protection supervisor, says that sometimes firms tend to overlook the importance of personal data.

“In much of the monitoring, tracking and tracing [devices]which are embedded in these facilities, there’s privacy relevance, and it will have to be compliant with the new European Commission Framework,” he says.

The Framework was signed by the European Commission in April 2011, and its main purpose is to safeguard consumer privacy and assure the public that web-connected objects are safe for the industry to develop – and for people to consume.

Take clothing, for instance.

A number of stores, among them major retail chain Wal-Mart, have started using RFID tags to enable employees to quickly check the stock by scanning items on shelves, and to track products more easily from manufacturing to the final delivery.

But privacy advocates are concerned that the same RFID reader could also read the data on, say, a consumer’s passport or driving licence equipped with the same kind of chip – and it could lead to identity theft.

And although the tag is supposed to be removed at the checkout, if a consumer leaves the shop with the chip still attached, the item could be tracked on the street.

Once the tag is thrown away, it can still be scanned, enabling someone to get an idea of your shopping habits.

Hackers also know how to decode RFID tags.

And because the information is transmitted via radio waves, one can simply listen in.

That’s exactly what happened when the Soviets presented a US ambassador during the Cold War with a wooden carving of the Great Seal, bugged with an RFID predecessor – a device called The Thing.

The Americans failed to find it – just like modern RFID tags, it only worked when enabled by a radio wave – which led to the Soviets eavesdropping on the conversations at the ambassador’s office by beaming radio signals to it.

Going smart

Another way to make things smarter is by embedding sensors in them and sending data online via a wireless low-power technology called Zigbee.

Sensors “tell” the driver where free parking
spaces are

IBM is doing just that – its project that remotely monitors the environment that could affect the health of elderly people in Bolzano, Italy, extended caretaker supervision with sensors embedded all over the patients’ homes, providing round-the-clock peace of mind not only for the patients but for their families too.

The sensors read the levels of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, temperature and smoke, and send the information to the caretakers’ PCs and mobile devices.

To protect the patients’ personal data, IBM uses encryption, says Bharat Bedi from the firm’s lab in Hursley, UK.

“And we’ve also added some anonymous features to the system – when you log on to the dashboard, you don’t see the person’s name or their exact address, they’ve been given almost like code names which only mean something to the council workers and the relatives,” he says.

A Spanish company Worldsensing has come up with a similar sensor-based technology.

With help of a special app on your smartphone, drivers can receive data from sensors installed in parking spaces, telling them where the closest free spot is.

“So that no one tries to sneak into your system and steal personal data – such as where you parked and how long you stayed – we use encryption, and also apply a decoupling technique that separates personal information from purely technical data,” says the firm’s chief technical officer, Mischa Dohler.

Chatting cars

Cars are rapidly becoming smart, too.

Toyota, for instance, has always been one of the frontrunners in telematics – and now it has decided to team up with Salesforce.com to allow cars to chat to their drivers on a private social network.

The venture, called Toyota Friend, will first work only for hybrid and electric cars. So if the battery is almost flat, for instance, the driver would receive a short message via Bluetooth on his or her smartphone.

In a demonstration at a Tokyo showroom, one of the Toyota owners showed such a message: “The charge will be completed by 2:15 am. Is that OK? See you tomorrow.”

Stores all over the globe are tagging their items with RFID chips

The car will also be able to update its – and hence the driver’s – location.

And it is here that privacy issues may come into play. What if the location is revealed automatically, for instance if the owner forgets to modify the privacy settings, just like on Facebook?

But Salesforce.com’s Tim Barker says that privacy should not be a concern.

“Social Enterprise applications provide customers an opt-in to allow them to share information such as their location and ‘likes’, to enhance their experience as a customer and the information that they receive,” he says.

It is hard to predict how well all these issues will be addressed once the entire planet gets on the web.

But as Mischa Dohler from Worldsensing puts it, in our already digital and high-tech society, the IoT privacy issues have to be taken with a little pinch of salt.

“It’s just like with your phone and a credit card – your mobile phone operator and your bank know much more about your life than your wife or husband does,” he says.

“And this data is likely to be more critical than the type of jeans you wear or for how long you’ve been parked.”

    • What most people should worried about is what they already own that has the same capability's as these objects do. If you listen to Clint Richardson interview on Gnostic Media titled, Lethal injection a story of vaccination in pt.1 and p.t2. The government is able to do far worse to us and they have the right to do so…This stuff is really scary but, Its being an Adult that makes us responsible to attain knowledge that is not so nice or pleasurable for us to know. So i take full responsibility in looking further in to things because, learning never stops just because were not in school any more does not mean our passion for truth must die. Thank You. And learn on Brothers and Sisters.

  1. SherifollowsYeshua on

    Yikes!!! today RFID tomorrow the mark of the beast on our right hands under the guise of a moneyless?cardless "fraudproof" new and improved way of living! :-(

    • They already have that in verichip, look it up. Some states like Virginia already passed a bill that prohibits things like Verichip from being implemented.

    • One thing am sure of friend! The Mark of the Beast is NOT a CHIP..wait a min? Does God care about a goddamn chip! Hw does dat get to break any of his commandments! I can as well sit at home and let my 'momma' feed me(without me having the chip)..but it is written EVERYONE will worship the image of the Beast whose names are not written in the book of life..don t be deceived, it s not a chip..it s a diversion…it s something more subtle, even the very elect will be deceived!BEWARE.

      • That is where you may be wrong. With the electronic implant, it can control your thoughts and emotions and thus make you a robot, and thus you will loose the power of choice, therefore you cannot be saved because then you belong to who ever is controlling you. There is more I can say, but for now I just want to remind you that mankind's body function similar to electronics circuit, so electronics is a copy of mankind internal functions, so once a man made device (microchip) can be added to what God has made perfect, this mankind becomes imperfect.

      • Yes, it is in your actions, and what you do. We were born with the commandments upon ALL of our hearts, we know what is BAD, and WHat is GOOD!

      • Just as a note of correction, the rest of that verse includes "if it were possible" which seems to imply that it is not possible for it to deceive the elect, and further if we look at the logic behind just the partial verse, if even elect were to be deceived, that'd leave *nobody* and everyone would be tricked, so there'd be none to reclaim, right? (the thing in question here being matthew 24:24) Also Sky, as per your question as to whether god would care about a microchip, I personally doubt it would… but there appears to be a prohibition against permanently marking or scarring your body, found in leviticus (19:28), whether this relates to the "mark" or not I don't know. Hope that helps with your question.

        This aside, and more on the subject matter, Do we have countermeasures for RFID chips, like a guide to how to spot them, and disable or destroy them? Because I'm thinking such information would be rather pertinent to have these days. Maybe microwaving them? (but would this harm the microwave, and further how would we get the metal zipper and button or other metal parts etc. off the pants/shirt/whatever and back on again, or would the chip be hidden in a button or zipper?)

    • First thing guys, is identifyin who the beast is, the mark of this nation/kingdom(beast) has already been accepted(willingly(on your fore head))! The bible says that a whole lot of people already 'wondered' and worship the beast..

      • I know, I'm just messing…

        It shouldn't be a problem, let the sheeples buy the pants and choose to be tracked. I'm sure a lot of people know what RFID chips are, and if they want them in their pants, then let them have it.

        I for one don't go shopping very often, but when I do.. I'll be sure to stay away from the gov't funded pants.

    • they will be cheaper most likely, they want you to get it. kinda like organic food, its cheaper to get food that they add a bunch of crap to than to get food that was made normally without adding crap to it… funny how that works.

      • I shop mostly at thrift stores, i can reuse stuff, and pay 10x or more less than i would at the mall… these designer jeans im wearing, 3 bucks. this shirt 2…

  2. NOOOOO not on my junk, man! and worse yet, they're making it sound cool/good for you!

    I'm 14, and glad I know the truth about this. I stopped caring if I get called a freak anymore…

    • It's cool to find someone close to my age (I'm 13) who actually knows about this and doesn't think I'm mentally unstable..

  3. This is so ironic.

    A few years ago I worked on a school project where we "envisioned" a world where all market items are RFID-tagged, and all customers had their personal health particulars stored on the internet. And we proposed a system that would enable everyone to figure out in a jiffy whether or not the item was suitable for their consumption. Faster, healthier shopping.

    If I went back now and did it again, it'd be the last thing I'd ever propose.

  4. Too bad they can't tag fruits and vegetables.

    It's also too bad those don't technically exist anymore.

    And if you guys don't buy into the system, (i.e. buy frozen meals and actually learn to F***ing cook, tweet + facebook, iphones etc, you inevitably slow the system of tracking down. People are so caught up in consumeristic "progress" they don't realize it's a trap. And when we say wake up they go "UGH OMG UR LIVIN IN dA STONE AGE U CREZYY!!!!!!"

    VC I feel like you should do some articles on the Occupy(Insert City Here) by Anonymous. It's becoming a strong tool of organization against oligarchies and shows how many awake people there are out there!!!!

    • lol… I know exactly what you mean! I had my phone shut off and I've been without for 2 weeks now. People are so shocked and think Im poor because I have no cell phone. They're like how can you live without it? Its funny because Im ok without it and the ones trying to get a hold of me are the ones getting upset and saying, "You really need to have a phone!" Im like, are you going to pay my bill? NO. I didnt think so!

      Anyway, I am ready to live out in the middle of no where, no running water, no electricity, raise my own farm animals and plants; And build my own house from whatever I find! Just learn to survive in the wilderness. I know I will be ok :)

      • wish i could get rid of the phone, but the lady would go nuts if she couldnt text me every hour of the day… hmm nowthat i think about it maybe that could work to my advantage… XD

      • Mormon it up lol! I co-sign with everything you said. I dont mind being a caveman for the rest of my life, atleast Im a happy/free caveman.

    • "It’s becoming a strong tool of organization against oligarchies and shows how many awake people there are out there!!!!"

      are you serious. the only thing oragnized about the occupy protests are the fact that people can decide on meeting at one place at the same time. It's so all over the place that it will be very, very easily exploited by whoever figures how to do so first.

      • I saved this about three weeks now. Here is another for you people to consider.


    • you idiot..look a little deeper into occupy lame street..it's fruad and all those little sheep who flocking to pretest have no idea what they are doing..the organizers are using people disenchantment with the system to move them along…NO GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT HAS THIS MUCH ATTENTION IN A WEEK.

      look at who sponsoring this, look where the donationS go….it's another lame attempt by the power to hoard people and get another agenda passed..more communism…stupid iDiot sheep..When I see all those morons…I think of course they protest they don't work and are mad they WILL have to..


      those protesters are so stupid..check what they are protesting for..another Alex jones , ventura, MSM rabbit hole…..yes you're a sheep to for thinking it' s anything good.

      • Dude.. you guys need to do your research on the Occupy movement. Both of you are highly misinformed if you think they're a bad thing.

  5. Put on a cattle coll on

    Smart technology + dumb humans = NWO hi tech control grid

    Everyone needs to google/ youtube this woman>>>> katherine albrecht (there is a good talk by her at 'brave new books' on youtube)

  6. Paranoia strikes deep, into your heart it will creep.

    Starts when you're always afraid, step outta line the man comes and takes you away.

    • time is money, a LOT of money

      so the faster you are parked.. the earlier you start paying the parking spot.. the earlier you're on your work to make money for your boss, the more productive the world will be…

      they own the banks, they own the corperations..

      so why not just print some more trillion dollarbills for themselves, go to an island and give the world to the people.. and eat drink and do everything with your trillions of dollars..

      wtf.. if you have 2 trillion.. you want to have more?

      you cant spend it anyway in one lifetime…

    • HaHaHa I know. I ride a bicycle and get asked ALL of the time, "why are you riding a bike?" (or I get offered rides by perverts) It's good on gas, keeps me in shape, and gets me away from the 'noise' so I can think for a moment.

      Once I came out of a store and was getting ready to get on my bike. I had my backpack on that I always carry and a sweet precious lady gave me money thinking I was homeless.

      I never was a fan of shopping, even as a kid. We always liked the idea of saving money and not giving it to the clothing big boys or any big boys.

      Getting a deal on something felt like we were 'cheating the system'

      This RFID in the clothing seems obsessive, invasive and ridiculous.

      It's reminding me of Beyonces commercial where she keeps saying 'upgrade, upgrade'…Hopefully the children won't buy into this 'upgrade yourself' idea.

      • Voice of Reason on

        Hi! It's always satisfying to know that you're minimizing the profits of these greedy corporations; and finding great deals is possible, on almost everything.

        For example,iIf you like to collect DVD's, check out online sites like half.com or Amazon…you can get really good, recent ones for only a few dollars…and many are available in 'Like New' condition. And then, when you get tired of them, you can resell them. That way, three people get to own the movie, but the manufacturer only makes a profit off one sale. Or, if you just want to watch a movie once, don't forget to check your local library; at most of them you can check out DVD's for free.

        Also, the online sites mentioned above are great for household items and clothes. Last year, I bought a brand new Nautica jacket for $6.00 (the seller received it as a gift and didn't like the color). I'm not big on wearing logos, but the quality of these windbreakers is really good.

        Best of all, by shopping this way, you end up with quality merchandise, and the manufacturers don't get a cent of your money.

        Happy Hunting!

  7. FCC recently required handset makers to stop manufacturing non-GPS phones by 2018. We all know that GPS tracks your current location and can send/store that information whether you like it or not & whether you turn it off or not. I ask Vigilant Citizen to expose this as well. Look it up on Engadget!

      • Of course, they will continue using that. 'Dark Ages' won't come as soon as you might think. The Illuminatis have to do it gradually…like we're not gonna notice it.

  8. be more open minded on

    They can lead us to the water, doesn't mean we have to drink it. This is soooooooooo stupid. Who would want to buy pants or food with a chip? Seriously, LAAAAMMME! OMGosh! Ain't no words, ain't no words. YES ain't!

    • Im sure not many will WANT to buy the item with the chip inside that tracks your movements – however people wont know there is a chip inside the clothing (or food, or cars/gadgets etc etc). They will just be fitted with them and ill be surprised if they even label them to inform people.

      Ways around this? dont get caught up in consumerism, learn to repair clothes and not rely on everyone else for everytjhing in your lives.

      Aahhh to be self sufficient = bliss.


    Smart World, huh? Internet of Things indeed! … The World on the Web = The New World Order realized!!! IMO.. This is crazy, but it is real. We need to stand up to them, we need our privacy, we aint no sheep, damn it!

  10. yeah this is sad…but really, the beginning of he article is just hilarious!! ..apparently if we don't accept the chips, we have no hearts and hate old people…how come no one wants to just strangulate these f***s?!…I can already see the brainwashed people be so glad and feel so safe with those chips in their clothes. Gross!

  11. It's like they want to turn the world into a living and breathing Facebook. Where everything you do is on display. All your information is up for grabs. This is very unsettling…

    • understood ;P no worries

      Honestly, if I offered my Grandma a chip of any kind she would say, "you can kiss my ass I've lived 86 years and can run circles around you…let me burn, I don't even buy green bananas anymore"

  12. Can't we just destroy the chips on whatever we find? Shirts, pants, food, etc etc?

    Might be hard to take care of these chips in cars and such, but we'd still be able to do something about them on smaller objects.

    I doubt we even have a remote chance of stopping all of what VC showed there from becoming realit. So we oughta' figure a way to protect ourselves from these control and monitoring measures. Get ready for when they come for real, 'cause they will. It sucks, it's downright infuriating, but I don't see it going any other way.

    • Hi Baardago!

      You're on the right track! Just throw your new clothes in the microwave.

      Problem solved. They can blow all the money they want.

    • Voice of Reason on

      Hi! In the picture above (the lady with the shopping cart), the tags seemed to be on the outer packaging of the groceries. So, when possible, just take your cans of soda, frozen entrees, etc. out of the boxes during checkout…and leave the outer boxes behind! Let the store management deal with the huge piles of discarded debris.

      As for clothes, all we need is someone intelligent enough to design an inexpensive scanner to help us pinpoint the location of the chip on the clothes (I have a feeling that the manufacturers will try to minimize resistance by sewing them into a seam (out of sight, out of mind). Anyway, once located, they can be removed. Or, if an inexpensive, pocket-sized scanner is available, you can just scan each item at the store, and refuse to buy it if it 'tests positive'.

  13. This is way too much. Normal people would NEVER want a piece of crapchip in their clothing! And for what? To be saved from fire or an emergency or whatever? I dont know, I just think that even the most clueless person about all this New World Order issues will be creeped out knowing that there's SOMETHING in what he WEARS that can totally take away his privacy!

  14. I actually beg for people not to buy clothing with chips in them, make clothes if you haft to! Unfortunately Theres no way around the food

    • There is a way around the food!

      There are independent suppliers online that sell non-GMO seeds. I suggest taking up gardening (preferably in your back yard somewhere, prevents NWO cops from snooping too much) and for the things you feel you can't grow yourself, you might even find a supplier of that online as well. Remember that natural seeds keep on producing natural seeds and GMO seeds do not. I also recommend a dehydrator for your fruits and other things so you can add some shelf-life to your foods.

      • What if that's simply not a practical option for some people?

        The best middle-of-the road option is to find a local grocer, or even a regional chain to buy food from. I won't buy meat or produce from Wal-Mart anymore cause it's generally poorer in quality than what I find in a regional competitor. By regional I mean a chain of stores that are found only in the part of the country I live in. They appear to get a lot of their fresh stuff from local farms.

      • Nate, you would be amazed at what you could grow indoors in containers…over the winter in the colder regions, even…I dug up several of my pepper plants and brought them in, and have some tomato seedlings starting with just some window light and one cheapo $9 fluorescent light fixture. Not to mention several herbs (legal ones). I might just keep them in here, and avoid all of the chemtrailing and the insect problems next year. Give it a shot…it can be done and costs next to nothing. Many plants will self-pollinate. I urge anybody living in an apartment to give it a try!

  15. Good thing I fry my clothes when I dry them. Lmao. I don't care. It just means I will have to buy a RFID scanner . Lmao. Am I really kidding? The bankers really are quite mentally ill. They are encouraging one to become more black hat than grey. I welcome it a bit due to my complete and utter defiance based solely on my belief in God. The saddest part is most people will be brainwashed into thinking it's stylish that their pants tell the authorities their every movement. One consolation might be the possible end of Facebook next month.

  16. I Love being called a "conspiracy theorist nut job!" Just means I'm a head of the curve when it comes to trusting all these people! I remember telling my boyfriend years ago when "eagle eye" came out.. that its really not far fetched at all.. and every day reading these articles proves we're just getting 1 step closer to that kind of policed/monitored society!

  17. Trust the BBC (Bilderberg Broadcasting Company) to throw a positive spin on this, it makes me want to throw up, especially the fact that we here in the UK have to pay a TV licence to the BBC which funds these Nazi morons.

    Oh and I found a chip today on my clothes – it must have fell off the dinner table! :)

  18. I should have said the only G.P.S system I want to be connected to is Gods Positioning System, not mans!

    Do you think if we did actually Nuke our clothes in a microwave we could get done for "damaging Government property lol!

  19. I've read an article last week that stated that Macy's is about to start inserting RFID chips in all their jeans and apperal…

  20. please read this book call SPYCHIPS by Katerine Albreght and Liz Mcintyre please visit their website

    you may found in the website they propose a legislation so you may download it from they webpage and send it to your congressman.

  21. Let's kill demo on

    I'm not sure anything but removal and physical destruction of such chips will be effective.

    We may try not to take or receive items containing chips but they will secretly place them in more and more regular objects.

  22. Over this crap on

    I like that the article called people who are concerned with this sort of thing "privacy advocates." Shouldn't we all be advocates of our own privacy? I'm can't think of a single person that would be ok with having a chip in their pants.

  23. I recently got a starter kit for blu electic ciggarettes, i was on organic tobbacos but still want to have a healthy option and not smell like an ash trey all the time, and all though i have the older version of the pack (glad i got the older one) the website is now promoting a new pack comming soon that utilizesrfid like tech. The new pack has online features that alert the owner when they are 50' within another user with the same pack as a conversation starter (lol they think of anything), within 50' of a blu store, or 50' within a blu bar and they are also (youd never guess)working on a way to utalizea way to sync the pack with your,Ready? FACEBOOK, TWITTER, ect. Im sure this is so you can let EVERYONE know where you go, like really, this whole "check in" GPS status updatething is getting old. i really dont care to know everytime people show up at a local bar or coffee shop on my mini feed but im sure this pack can also tell "them" where you are. when it all goes down we may as well hit the wilderness completly naked…

  24. A lot of you don't really seem to get the real reason why retailers want to do this: to prevent shoplifting. They already put anti-theft devices (which are essentially RFID chips) on electronics and a few other expensive items, but I imagine a lot of little things without them get snatched off store shelves and shoved into pockets and the shoplifters get away with it.

      • Not so. I'm trying to do a little research on the topic so I don't just freak out over nothing, and according to one source, "Passive RFID tags rely entirely on the reader as their power source. These tags are read up to 20 feet (six meters) away, and they have lower production costs, meaning that they can be applied to less expensive merchandise. These tags are manufactured to be disposable, along with the disposable consumer goods on which they are placed. Whereas a railway car would have an active RFID tag, a bottle of shampoo would have a passive tag."

        Soo.. no, not too expensive. I'll get back to you on whether they pose a real threat, though.

        Source: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/gadgets/high

      • Forgot to add:

        "Most pass­ive RFID tags cost between seven and 20 cents U.S. each [source: RFID Journal]. Active and semi-passive tags are more expensive, and RFID manufacturers typically do not quote prices for these tags without first determining their range, ­storage type and quantity. The RFID industry's goal is to get the cost of a passive RFID tag down to five cents each once more merchandisers adopt it."

        same source as above

  25. Did some digging on how to destroy the chips:

    "Q: What do I do if I find an RFID chip? Can I kill or disable it?

    A: You can disable a chip for all practical purposes by disconnecting it from its antenna. It is usually pretty obvious where the chip is located in an RFID tag (all the antennas will run to it). Once you find the tiny black square you can use a pair of scissors or a knife to cut it off. To ensure that the tiny chip cannot later be read (assuming anyone could even find a device so small), you can puncture it with a straight pin, crush it, or pulverize it. (Note: While burning or microwaving can destroy a chip, we do not recommend these methods because of fire risk. See the Q & A below.) Do not try to "drown" it, since water does not generally destroy RFID chips. Running a magnet over the chip will not work, either.

    Q: Can I microwave products to kill any hidden RFID tags they might contain?

    A: While microwaving an RFID tag will destroy it (a microwave emits high frequency electromagnetic energy that overloads the antenna, eventually blowing out the chip), there is a good chance the the tag will burst into flames first. The difficulty of destroying a hidden RFID chip is one reason we need legislation making it illegal to hide a chip in an item in the first place.

    Q: Are there some products that can't be RFID chipped?

    A: Items containing LIQUID or METAL are especially hard to chip. Liquids tend to absorb the electromagnetic energy needed to power the chip, while metal tends to reflect it and bounce it around in unpredictable ways. Both problems can cause interference in the RFID signal sent by a chip to the reader. These bugs are still being worked on. You can use this information about metal to your advantage. Has your store recently remodeled, replacing traditional metal shelving with new-fangled plastic shelves, to prevent interference with RFID transmission?

    Q: Will a magnet erase an RFID chip?

    A: No, the chips are not magnetically encoded. Running a magnet over the chip or using a tape eraser will not affect the chip.

    Q: Can chips in clothing survive the washer and dryer?

    A: Yes. Many RFID tags are designed to withstand years of normal wear and tear, including washing and drying. In fact, we know of at least one uniform rental company that uses RFID chips to keep track of its inventory. The chips hold up under the rough handling and commercial washings. "

  26. well i work in a major department store and just this week theyre putting RFID chips on all the shoes. when i saw what was happening my mind flashed to where i first heard if RFID chips (here on VC) then i started freaking out. this is crazy

  27. Will simply washing or drying the item of clothing destroy the chip? If so then all we need to do is wash the item the moment it comes home.The makers have probably already thought of that though.

  28. Okay,I just read the comment by Kat and I have my answer.I guess I'll just have to start shopping at retailers who create their own clothing-no more mass merchants.

  29. What if all the chips were not their to track specifically? What if they were there to let you recieve emails, and play your favorite music, and flash lights when you are dancing to make all your friends jealous – and only tracked your movements to give better customer service and extended warranties and such – how popular and trendy would pants with chips be then?

  30. I saw a story I think the lady was british or something, but she was oh so very happy to have her child chipped. She said something like, if my baby is stolen or gets lost all I have to do is check the computer to find out where the baby is. I think that the world is trying every kind of way to replace God or the need for God. What ever happened to faith, or just living life as life happens. I mean, what wrong with just finding a parking spot on ur own, or buying things without cutting ur self to open them. The more they try to make the world easier the more it gets harder to live in. And crazy folks just co sign their them when they say, " omg it's great, I don't know how I ever lived without it"….

    • I read this story, too, and I was as equally stunned. As the saying goes, "Ignorance is bliss."

      I really like, "The more they try to make the world easier the more it gets harder to live in." So true!

  31. My advice for all of this – 1) Stock up on food supplies from now, 2) Buy all your clothes for another 50 years or so from now, 3) Train yourself to walk very long distances.

    Okay, okay, I kid :)

    Well, these things are inevitable, I guess, but we can stop it, I'm sure. Yes, there's only a small amount of people who know the TRUTH, but I think it'll be more than enough to stop the government from going forward with these things!

    And we all know that the governments can use chaotic protests to their advantage, so why not partipicate/make a peaceful and united stand against all these things? :)

    We have the power to change our World. But the more we support these things, the government and elite organisations will find it very easy to mess with our lives!

    We should try to make it clear that we're awake and aware!

  32. Soon they will make machines that won't let you die… Probably have to get on a payment plan to die… This is a crazy world, never thought someone would be tracking u from ur clothing.

  33. Who wants those funky looking jeans they make these days anyway? The croch is only 2 inches long and don't go all the way up to your waist… I mean who really and I mean Really likes low raise jeans? don't laugh bc they make them for men too.. lol

    What if the things that we are witnessing now; such as the 'illuminati/freemason' symbols are positive? What if they are trying to tell us something so that we can wake up from the sleep thatreligion has put us in keeping us from tappIng into our true essence..we are gods..

    • Thats not the message they intend at all. The elites want us to recognize THEM as gods, but certainly not the unwashed masses.

    • I agree with Miv. When have the Elite Ones ever wanted us to see them as "the good guys"? They believe we commoners are beneath them and they make a game out of deception. They believe we are their pawn. Their egos are way too large for them to think otherwise. Cocky is a good term to describe them.

    • WOW!!!! This is the only everlike comment I have ever read and agree!!!! The ones who are made to look like the "evil" ones are actually the GOOD ones, with a true message!!! And the ones who are made out to look like the "good" ones, are actually the EVIL ones – "EXAMPLE" – THE VATICAN, THE CHURCH!!! The Vatican is it's own city and they answer TO NOONE! They have so much power through the word of "god" around the world! Whether catholics, christians, protestants etc, it's all within a CHURCH. Has anyone ever thought that the "Shadow Government" could easily be out of Vatican City? The popes are not only "Italians", they are chosen to lead from different countries! Different nationalities. Why? to be "politically correct" – ha – that says it all then 'politically" – it's all a fascade and true corrupted politics are run from there!! NWO is being run from the Vatican – our "local governments" are there just as a stage, behinds the scenes is the truth! The "Roman Empire" still breathes with tentacles larger and longer then we can imagine. Think about this.

  35. We decline the use of microchips de facto.

    In addition to that, the underage ought to abstain from the internet as it's another misuse of technology. They should read a book, play outdoors, be more active and develop their social skills in the real world. And you wonder why there's a deterioration in literacy and numeracy skills over the past decade or so. I don't think any child under 18 needs internet access.. just an observation on my part.

  36. My 2 yr old son received a pair of shorts as a gift from my mom from Old Navy that had an RFID chip on the inside. I didn't even notice until he had worn them a couple of times. The tag was about one inch long and wide and said to remove before use!

    • You can always try bigger hammer. And knife should work too. If you can't smas it, cut it out and try to smash it again. :)

  37. Lovely…

    What if the things that we are witnessing now; such as the ‘illuminati/freemason’ symbols are positive?"

    Doubtful. I come here because I'm not very good at symbolism; I by no means limit my research to just this site. Until my PC was knocked out by a page embedded with a virus, I had bookmarked quite a few mainstream and alternative outlets to track trends; I've always had an interest in Domestic and International affairs. The overall trends are simply disturbing to say the least.

    These symbols represent the political and financial elites ideological viewpoint, and the results run parallel to the symbolism. As a prime example, you can evaluate and mirror the murals at the Denver International Airport to the conspiracy towards One World government. VC discusses DIA here http://vigilantcitizen.com/sinistersites/sinister
    The only exception is that of two murals with the rainbow, which if you want to be technical merely represents the duality of the rainbow itself. It basically means that either there will be a mass murder using troops/bioweapons/nuclear to convince nation's to turn over their weapons and sovereignty to a supranational entity be it the UN or other, or government's will relinquish their weapons and sovereignty and then chaos will be unleashed. The reason is very simply if one takes the time to look. The people who have envisioned this future are: Malthusian, Statist, and Elitist. This vision is inherently multi-layered:

    Plan A). Financial and Political unification through supranationalism and globalization.

    Plan B). Use of force or chaos that directs outrage and delegitimacy of governments while tempting others to more sympathetic to Corporations and their respective unions. Ever seen the articles here from VC about Metropolis? Same concept between Corporations and their respective Unions.

    Plan C). Favored government wins the day. What nation in particular has benefited the most, it has also been promoted as the ideal government by some financial elites. China, a bonefid Authoritarian Government who exploits Crony Capitalism (Communitarian Collectivist political and financial unification). If you want a prelude of the elites's vision, research China would be the way to go. China has greatly benefited by off-shoring, out-sourcing, and the West's De-Development. In other words, either people accept this form of global governance, or others will view this as a illegitimate form of government and accept protection from this government's favored Corporations/Entities/Persons. This is by definition the Feudal system. If you look back at the history, feudalism resulted from illegitimacy of governments; people sought protection from in exchange for serfdom/mannorism.

    I honestly don't see the direction of these trends, and the symbolism of this path as positive.

    "What if they are trying to tell us something so that we can wake up from the sleep thatreligion has put us in keeping us from tappIng into our true essence..we are gods.."

    I doubt it. This seems to be on par to a discussion thread that I've seen elsewhere contemplating; whether, the Illuminati are the good guys. The problem is that the direction of this path makes me doubt this.

    The problem is that religion has been largely perverted from what its original purpose. How many aspects of church directly or indirectly references 'obey authority'? I can think of many. Religion is perhaps the oldest co-opted movement by governmental authority that I can think of. It also makes a handy emotional string to pull if those in power need to boost support for an action; it otherwise wouldn't attain. Fact of the matter is that manipulation (the indirect influence of control) is logic and emotion blind. People who are susceptible to either or both will be influenced by either or both; it's simply of figuring out your 'currency' to what motivates a person. Then, it's practically child's play misdirecting or redirecting that motivation into the wrong direction. The most recent and prime example is how the Occupy Wall Street movement is starting much like the TEA Party as an anti-Federal Reserve movement, but the Republicans and Koch Brothers co-opted it using taxes, funding to help structure the movement, and then for many TEA Party groups was absorbed into the Republican Party. Here we have Soros, Obama, and other 'Democrate' leaning institutions attempting to gradually redirect the movement using White House talking points funded by none other than Soros, Goldman Sachs (a institution bailed out by the US and several of the PIIGS), and others. How did it do this? It used common ground of the movement individuals and then centralized and organized the movement into an institutional collective, and its leadership swayed by funds and etc now use talking points of the particular side that co-opted it. This is why the TEA Party is largely referred to as an Astroturff movement 'controlled' (really manipulated and influenced by the Koch Brothers and Republicans via people like Sarah Palin).

    Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The political and financial elites are quite happy with the status quo as it enables both to consolidate. Consider, what is a bailout/stimulis truly? They were sold to the public as necessary to prevent economic implosion creating a category known as Too Big To Fail. What does this truly mean? It means that these favored campaign contributors and upper class institutions and individuals were bailed out to keep them solvent; it also means the ladder from Upper Middle-Upper Class has effectively been severed. What does this mean? It means these TBTF are now a caste upper class. Does anyone truly believe the present political class will legislate or use executive powers that will inevitably knock them out of the upper class?

    Similarly, if you look at the article, RFID chips relate to several concurrent envisions of the future; these people want.

    1). They consider us human resources and capital, which is often referred to in papers and articles and etc involving Sustainable Development. Resources and capital can be owned. Wouldn't you want to keep track of your resources and capital using a barcode of some kind?

    2). This is a form of incrementalism or gradualism that conditions and encourages people particularly to take the next step, which is accept a form of verichip within the body.

    "Silksoul says:

    October 7, 2011 at 8:33 am

    They already have that in verichip, look it up. Some states like Virginia already passed a bill that prohibits things like Verichip from being implemented."

    It's not that simple. Virginia's statespeople/politicians (likely) would have to be willing to either curtail Big Government aspirations, and the populaces would have to be informed that many programs directly or indirectly referred to as Welfare will be held hostage, and they'll have to help them have the political courage to face off against the Federal government.

    Does anyone here know enough people who would risk: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, Unemployment Benefits, and etc to ensure States with anti-Verichip legislation is enforced by the State even if the Federal Government demands it of that State? Or, do you think Virginia and other such States would support a 80-90% cut in the public work force to derail Big Government? What about the inevitable Federal retailiation of cutting off entitilements and poverty safety nets, which runs the risk of DHS Directive 20 and Executive Order declaring a National Emergency and Martial Law. These seem to be the status quo's trump cards in ensuring their envisioned privileged positions.

  38. reminds me of Jimmy Neutron episode where pants with chips run amok and try to take over the world. . . is this our future? @.@

  39. the inventors of rfi on

    I already own so many jeans. I won't be buying new technological jeans any time soon. I will keep the jeans I already have for many years to come.

    Also, I don't need technological cars of any kind. I walk everywhere and I like it.

  40. I work for a popular underwear company and one particular store that carries our goods pays to have a RFID tag in addition to the regular barcode. It is a "smart" inventory system. No scanning is needed once the item passes the doors because of the chip. It's everywhere people.

  41. I just would like to make a statement of why the microchip may be the mark of the beast; because with this electronic implant, the can control your thoughts and emotions and thus make you a robot, (this is a sign of total rejection of God) and thus you will loose the power of choice, therefore you cannot be saved.. There is more I can say, but for now I just want to remind you that mankind's body function similar to electronics circuit, so electronics is a copy of mankind internal functions, so once a man made device (microchip) can be added to what God has made perfect, this mankind becomes imperfect, although the elite are selling this point of half man half machine as perfect, don’t be deceived is the most dangerous thing one can do to enhance them self using technology this is a sign of total rejection of God.

  42. It's funny because I felt like I may have already had a chip in my clothing. I kept going out shopping around the Christmas season and occasionally I would set off the store shoplifting sensors, and it got to be such a hassle that I would have to tell the checkout people that I think I had something in purse tripping the sensors and appologize. Eventually one store owner told me that I probably have a chip in my clothing and she let me stick my shoes and purse through, then I put my jacket through and found the culprit. She told me that they are putting microchips in people's clothes to track what consumers buy. I found the chip imbedded in a piece of fabric and immediately cut it out and threw it away. I bought that jacket at Kohl's.

    They're already been doing this, but it hasn't been publicized. My grandmother use to refuse to use her grocery shopping "club" card because she said it tracked what she bought and didn't like it. She was on to something!

  43. He said WHAT? on

    " “A typical city of the future in a full IoT situation could be a matrix-like place with smart cameras everywhere, detectors and non-invasive neurosensors scanning your brain for over-activity in every street,” says Rob van Kranenburg, a member of the European Commission’s IoT expert group "

    Straight from the horse's mouth. STILL think the NWO is a "crazy conspiracy theory" ???

  44. Hey People! Can you just open this link:

    Have you heard anything more blatant than the speach (the coming of NWO) of the Pre-candidate Mitt Romney, for USA Presidency!!!

    "Our next President will face many difficult and complex foreign policy decisions. Few will be black and white."

    and he continues:

    "But I am here today to tell you that I am guided by one overwhelming conviction and passion: This century must be an American Century. In an American Century, America has the strongest economy and the strongest military in the world. In an American Century, America leads the free world and the free world leads the entire world".

    "God did not create this country to be a nation of followers. America is not destined to be one of several equally balanced global powers. America must lead the world, or someone else will. Without American leadership, without clarity of American purpose and resolve, the world becomes a far more dangerous place, and liberty and prosperity would surely be among the first casualties".

    "Let me make this very clear. As President of the United States, I will devote myself to an American Century. And I will never, ever apologize for America.

    • And he continues:

      Some may ask, “Why America? Why should America be any different than scores of other countries around the globe?”

      "I believe we are an exceptional country with a unique destiny and role in the world".

      • This man is so cold speaking that the others countries in the world are below USA! But in fact they were founded by freemasons, lucifer's soldiers.

        GOD did create the world, but USA was created by a little "horned rebel" to dominate the world. That's the truth!

        We have to be very focus on Michael Jackson's words before he died. Just to remind you, he said:

        "“People are always saying “Oh, they’ll take care of it, the government or they will…they?…they who?…it starts with US! It’s us or it will never be done”.

        He then closes with these sincerely spoken words:

        “We need to put love back into the world and remind the world that love is important, to love each other. We’re all One. And take care of the planet. We have 4 years to get it right or else it’s irreversible damage done. So we have an important message to give…it’s important. Blessings to all”.

        We have to reinforce our prayers to the world, because if they're preparing to bring their anti-christ to this world, we have to show them that we're also preparing the coming of our savior, our great prince, the prince who never forgot us!

        God Bless You All! :)

  45. A friend and I actually have had experience with RFID tracking. Mines was imbedded in a purse I purchased from Target, It wasnt until many incidents of tipping off store sensors while ENTERING the store that I decided to take a look at what the culprit was. Sure enough it was an RFID tag taped on the back of a identity card that many bags and wallets have. I threw it away and my issues ended. When I noticed the same thing happening to a friend during our shopping trips , I told her to hand the wallet over because theres an RFID tracking tag that are tipping off the sensors. Sure enough it was.

  46. won't we get any privacy anymore? sheeesh annoying RFID, cant they make something that wouldnt bother ya privacy? hmm anyway we could just take them off right? (just a thought)

    • disgusted@theworld on

      not if we didn't know if they were there. And maybe by the time we realize, all of our info will be known.

  47. disgusted@theworld on

    This is seriously disgusting to read. I can't believe this is being allowed!!! What happened to privacy?? If people weren't so blinded by the government and media, they would be protesting things such as this as well as the mind control the media tries to do on us, which is WITHOUT a question influenced by the government to make us more stupid. Instead ppl are sitting infront of their televisions, reading meaningless magazines about stupid shit, listening to mind control music, UNAWARE that they are digging themselves and everyone else into deeper holes!!! If all of us thought this way then the government wouldn't be able to get away with any of their bullshit because we would ALL be using our brains instead of letting it get soggy.

    • Oyster is a RFID card in itself. Yes, because RFID means Radio Frequency Identification or Identity. It tracks your moves and where about. All this systems are a worm-up to the real thing, because since they are being introduced in this different forms and utilities that will make people get used to them and aware and use them or know they can make things easy. In some way or form most of as use them already, but later the ultimate RFID that can be implanted will be introduced when they think people will be ready to accept because, they've already used it such as Oyster or bank card or anything. But the difference is the Implanted one is the most dangerous one, and no one, I mean no one should accept it.

  48. On channel 9's A Current Affair in Australia, last week, they talked about this topic and saying it's a "good"" thing so they know if someone steals something from a shop or for safety reasons.

  49. let alone this RFID chip, even Facebook's new feature now is so freaking mind control. i feel like every single action is being monitored, freaky! Therefore i've deactivated my FB acc, but i know my info will always be in their archive

  50. Syrus Magistus on

    Fucking creepy. I hope nobody's stupid enough to tolerate this in any capacity. Give them an inch and they'll take your whole body.

    • That's exactly right. Also, if they put the mark of the beast on a chip that's going to be even in your underwear, pretty soon us freedom fighters are gonna have to fight the good fight naked lol.

  51. Syrus Magistus on

    The real mark of the Beast is a fully calcified pineal gland. Calcification in this case means you have no imagination- no intuition, from the Seat of your Soul. Your pineal gland, when active (during sleep cycles for instance) forms a hyperdimensional tetrahedron shape, with one point exiting your crown, two from your neck, and one through your forehead. That's why the third eye is drawn on the forehead.

    Furthermore, your Pineal gland is literally constructed almost exactly like your physical eyeballs in its own way. There are rods and cones, vitreous fluids, etc. Every time you imagine something, trace amounts of crystallized DMT are broken up and emit colored sparks which your eyeball-like gland perceives as light. It's referred to as a photo-transduction cascade. I'm not a scientist really, but I'm trying to explain this a little bit so it's not so mysterious. Compounds like Fluoride (which they put in water), as well as Bromine (which they put in Chemtrails, alone with Aluminum) are referred to as Halides. They produce arterial plaque and they gum up these little crystals in your pineal gland which produce light.

    It's well-researched that the pineal works like just like an eye, so you can look into it yourself. What's not so well-known is that it is also capable of generating Faraday cages, and little micro-wormholes. That's roughly where the shapes of certain images in your mind's eye come from. The point is that your pineal gland, your Third Eye, is your direct link to the spiritual realms. It's how you connect with divine consciousness personally. Destroying your ability to do that through gradual poisoning and brainwashing is the real Mark of the Beast. This RFID chip is just icing on the cake.

  52. I hope you guys remember that ALL phones are RFIDs, not just the smart ones. It's all in the SIM card.

    The only cheap and absolute way to block a radio signal is to build a Faraday cage – copper wire mesh will do. The finer the mesh, the more effectively it blocks EM waves.

  53. A chip is NOT the mark of the beast. The mark on the hand or forehead is talking about our thoughts and actions. That is why it is crucial that we come correct with our characters. This period of grace that we have, we need to come clean to any malice we may have against anyone and to renew ourselves in the Lord. To do good, to live a fruitful life – if we're going to be lying, cheating and deceiving people such as joining any elite group of any kind, then our characters will not be formed in good.

  54. Interesting that  over a thousand years ago Islams prophet predicted "By Him in Whose hand is my soul, the Hour will not come
    until wild animals talk to men, and a man speaks to his whip or his shoe,
    and his thigh will tell him about what happened to his family after he
