RFID tags: Get bent

So now RFID tags can bend, but they still ain’t secure. A partnership between TSK and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory has made these bendy tags a reality.

It’s slim and sleek and trendy. It’s 800um thick, just about twice as thick as a piece of paper. It operates at 13.56MHz. It runs on its own power, so you don’t need an external battery. And you can bend it up to 10mm without losing normal operation.

The developers anticipate use of this bendable-tag technology in smart cards, among other things. It is undoubtedly the first step in a transition toward more and more functionality of the useful yet controversial RFID tags.
