RFID tags for Kindercity visitors

Dan Wu

Kindercity RFIDPrivacy advocates might be down on RFID, but the one place where it's definitely not gauche to use the latest wireless tech are theme parks, and Kindercity,Switzerland's science park now gives all visitors a RFID bracelet which activates when they get near an attraction. Parents pre-load an account and everytime a child goes on a ride, the amount is deducted automatically.  So how long until Disneyland breaks down and implements an RFID (or Bluetooth or WiFi) tracking system to give parents "peace of mind"?
