Nano World: Nano will boost RFID tags
Charles Q. Choi: Nanotechnology could help speed the broad adoption of radio transmitters the size of a flake of glitter or smaller in nearly everything a person owns, from clothes to cows, permitting scanners to track those items from manufacture to end user.
"RFID tags are poised to become the most far-reaching wireless technology since the cell phone," Cynthia Kuper, chief technology officer for Micromem Technologies in Toronto, told UPI's Nano World.
"Nanotechnology could really help accomplish the goal of five-cent RFIDs for ubiquitous use," Steven Van Fleet, Micromem's senior RFID adviser, told Nano World.
