HP has unveiled a "revolutionary" new wireless chip. It holds up to 4 Mb of data that can be read by holding a device closely over the chip.
From the press release:
"Some of the potential applications include storing medical records on a hospital patient’s wristband; providing audio-visual supplements to postcards and photos; helping fight counterfeiting in the pharmaceutical industry; adding security to identity cards and passports; and supplying additional information for printed documents."
But don't start laughing just yet because HP is trying to tell you that they re-invented RFID technology.
