This tag is very thin, and could be virtually undetectable when
sandwiched between paper or inserted under the innersole of

Yes, metal can interfere with RFID, but developers have found
ways to make the metal of cans work with the antenna.

of Matrics loyalty card chip.
RFID proponents would like to see all loyalty cards, ATM cards and
other ID's RFID enabled with chips like this. Imagine! Banks, retailers,
supermarkets and governments could find out everything about you
when you walk past a reader device since line-of-sight is not necessary
to access the information. The radio waves could go right through
your pants and through your wallet to get the information on the
card's chip. Imagine how valuable it would be for businesses to
determine who is worth serving and who should be ignored!
Can't remember who makes this one, but it shows another example
of a thin RFID tag that could be virtually undetectable when sandwiched
between paper or cardboard. Note that the solid red dot is the chip.
The lines running out from the chip are the antenna. This is a typical
configuration. You can see the chip and antennas in the examples
