I had a chance to review the 13.56MHz RFID field detector from Montie Gear and I have to say, I like this detector. It’s very thin, somewhat flexible, and is the size of a credit card so it fits in my wallet.
This video demonstrates how to get a good consistent read with a 2x12mm Mifare S50 tag and a mobile phone. I use my Samsung Galaxy Nexus to read a glass 2x12mm S50 tag in a sterilization pouch, and read the tag implanted in my right hand.
I had some questions from Dangerous Things customers that centered around getting a good consistent read of the 2x12mm NFC compatible tags they purchased. Rather than respond via email, I figured it would be easier to make this video to explain how to get the tag to read consistently when used with typical “flat plane” [...]
After my experience at ToorCamp, it became clear… there are certain kinds of people who are interested in this DIY approach to RFID implantation. So I put together a little online storefront that sells, well, dangerous things. http://dangerousthin.gs
This post is for the people at ToorCamp 2012 that received RFID implants at the Implantation Station. Below are links and information cobbled together based on questions asked of me in person and in the ToorCamp Google Group post; EM4102 – You were implanted with an EM4102 family tag. Readers that support this tag are [...]
From March 2005 to March 2012 I had a 2mm by 12mm glass encased HITAG S tag implanted in my right hand. The HITAG was chosen for it’s feature set, which includes writable memory blocks, the ability to emulate EM4102 tags, and a 40 bit crypto-security feature that could help protect the tag’s memory blocks [...]
Ever have to sort through a pile of unmarked LF EM4100/EM4102/Unique RFID tags sitting on your desk, or need to quickly determine the ID of a tag before programming it into your latest RFID project? Well, the guys over at CoreRFID were nice enough to send me one of their spiffy little USB readers. Turns [...]
Back in February I did a radio interview with Netherlands radio program Earth Beat. The Feb 25th show is titled “Born Free“, and my interview is the 3rd segment. Full audio can be downloaded, and I’ve also cut out just my bit and hosted it locally. It’s pretty much the same stuff anyone ever asks [...]
After it’s initial release, a few bugs have been identified and resolved in the RedBee reader. The first major bug was a bit-flip issue that basically read and recorded tag ID bits in reverse order. As long as you didn’t need to inter-op with other readers, this wasn’t a big deal. However as soon as [...]
