– RFID TECHNOLOGY: WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR COMMERCE, SECURITY, AND THE CONSUMER. RFID tags can be small as a grain of sand. They can be hidden in products and documents without one’s knowledge. This raises serious privacy concerns. Trials have already taken place, some without adequate consumer consent. Two companies represented here, Wal-Mart and Procter and Gamble conducted such a trial with lipstick that had RFID tags. As the Chicago Sun Times reported last year, every time a consumer would pick up a lipstick off the shelf in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma Wal-Mart, a video monitor would be triggered and images of the consumer would be sent to Procter and Gamble researchers in Cincinnati. Despite this, many attempt to downplay the threats to privacy and civil liberties. We are told that the technology to do the kind of tracking that privacy and civil liberty advocates discuss does not exist
