Rfid-2The fellows from Flexilis went for a world record attempt on reading RFID tags from a distance. The end result was a bit over 69 feet on top of the roof of DEFCON. Project details will be in our audio show, but for now, a photo gallery of the gear….

    I want to help my daughter Brittany (14) on a learning track that could help her do a high school science fair project on RFID tag distance detection. Can a 125 MHz laser-like radio beam be created? If it were pulsed could that cause the induction field needed to cause a current to flow on the passive chip that would activate the passive RFID device?

    Then one could use a device similar to the blue-tooth snipe gun for long range detection possibly? I am just a plain guy with high school electric shop experience. So my knowledge is somewhat limited.
