Radio Frequency Identification - usally a small tag like you find attached to software boxes or high theft items. Meant to set off an audible alarm if you remove an item from a store without the tag being deactivated by a cashier, usually at the time of payment. RFID technology is continually changing by getting smaller and reacting over a longer distance (range). Can't really see how it would be effective in a weapon though - too many ways to defeat the frequency range of the tag.

Radio Frequency Identifier. It is a passive device that responds to radio signals of a certain frequency, which can be read by a scanning device. You see it in warehousing applications, where you can run a scanner by a pallet and get an accurate inventory of everything on the pallet. They are also inserted into pets, subdermally.

The mark of the beast as foretold in the book of Revelation! Once he converts the global economy to a cashless society, the anti-christ will make everyone get on either in their hand or forehead. After that you won't be able to buy or sell anything without one. Not a loaf of bread or a cup of coffee!

One thing to note - as opposed to what those wearing tinfoil hats believe, they can't be tracked via satellite. I think the maximum range, on average, that these things work is 10 feet, normally less.

They are also used in manufacturing to keep track of what operations have been performed to an individual part. Pretty cool.
