Verichip For Kids?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Engadget)

Lauren Scott of California will launch a line of kid's pajamas sewn with RFID tags. Readers placed in a house will be able to scan the tags within a 30-foot radius and trigger an alarm if boundaries are breached.

Although this may be potentially useful for famous parents who need to know when their kids sneak off to "party," this whole security measure seems pretty useless as all the kids have to do is sneak an extra set of clothes in the house and change into their "party costumes" and sneak out. Unless implanted this hi-tech big brother system is pretty much a waste of money.

"It's an interesting use of RFID tagging, but this application could end up like the global positioning system watches advertised six to eight months ago that were suppose to allow you to track your kid, and they just didn't catch on at all," [Michael Overly, an attorney at Foley & Lardner LLP] says. "It would make more sense to license the technology to a securities company that would offer the service in an addition to the alarm system they're selling now."

This hi-tech security wear costs around $500 and would probably make more sense for the Pentagon to have in place than for little Johnny who wants to sneak out to his neighbor's tree house. In either case it seems that Verichip is being smart by avoiding the "big brother-end times" stigma by sticking with hospitals and cute babies. Although the only way for this technology to be truly successful would be to implant it underneath the skin, such a move would probably spell certain financial doom to this company as well as it's parent company ADSX, especially in red America.

Yes, it does seem like a waste of money and resources (and quite bizarre as well!)...
