RFID continues to wow industry professionals with its seemingly endless capabilities. As a result, more companies are incorporating this technology into their business practices. In fact, a study conducted by IDTechEx revealed that as of 2007, 3.752 billion RFID tags have been sold over the last 60 years. Furthermore, sales jumped an astonishing 8 percent—from 19 percent to 27 percent—between 2005 and 2006.

the future often conjures up images of a Jetson-like universe complete with robots and spaceship vehicles that fold into suitcases. While this lifestyle is light-years away, great strides are in fact being made to take us to a society where washing machines instruct their owners to remove a silk garment accidentally tossed in with the wool sweaters. And, perhaps in 20 years, refrigerators might even print out our grocery lists.
