Researchers are working on new RFID trackers for robots, toys and corporate environments.
Disney Research is reportedly working on radio frequency identification chips that could enable the company to track movements and create robots capable of recognizing humans.
The advancements resemble RFID chip “marks” referenced multiple times in the book of Revelation.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. -Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)
Following the release of the new technology, park visitors would be required to wear ID tags in order to be identifiable to robots designed for customer service. Using a UHF RFID reader and a Kinect vision system, the andoids would be able to identify people’s individual movements and positions then relay that information to wearable chips.
Furthermore, researchers tested ID-Match systems in office environments where RFID readers identified special tags containing data on their identities and location throughout the facility with a 94.5 percent accuracy rating.
“With ID-Sense, the RFID technology could track a person’s activities, such as making breakfast, drinking milk, wearing glasses, reading a book or turning a TV on and off. During testing, the group attached tags to such items as a bowl, a container of cereal and a milk carton. The system could not only identify when a tag was moved, but also when it was touched or covered. By placing a reader on the ceiling, the team was able to detect the movements of items, such as a cup of tea being lifted and put back onto the table.” Source
While it is possible that Disney might be planning on using RFID technology for innocent projects like creating futuristic toys and other gadgets specifically for their theme parks – the fact that researchers are experimenting with tracking chips in a corporate environment is concerning.
Modern advancements should certainly be celebrated as steps forward for humanity, however, new technology can be used for good or conversely, for evil.
