RFID tracking tags

Radio Frequency IDentification is an automatic data capture technology that uses tiny tracking chips affixed to products. These tiny chips can be used to track items at a distance right through someone's purse, backpack, or wallet.

Many of the world's largest manufacturing companies would like to replace the bar code with these "spy chips," meaning that virtually every item on the planet, and the people wearing and carrying those items, could be remotely tracked.

A typical RFID tag has the size and flexibility of an address label and allows remote reading and writing from up to several meters without requiring line of sight. These are usually found in product packaging.

The other types of RFID tags are smaller than a grain of rice, as this amazing photo below demonstrates. These can be put in almost anything and are virtually undetectable by the consumer.
