CenTrak intros world’s thinnest active RFID, opens new realm of possibilities
Despite being oh-so-promising years ago, we’ve seen little innovation in the RFID space over the past several months. Today, however, CenTrak’s proving that the dream is still somewhat alive. The outfit has just introduced the planet’s thinnest hybrid active Radio Frequency Identification tag, which is said to be so thin that it’s almost “indistinguishable from a standard employee badge.” The IT-740 Staff Badge checks in at just three millimeters thick and includes a trio of programmable buttons, a system controlled LED, hole mounts for portrait or landscape orientation, water resistance for easy cleaning and “ultra long battery-life.” For employees, rocking one of these guarantees that your superior will recognize every step you take, every move you make and every bond you break. Which, sadly enough, isn’t nearly as bodacious as The Police make it sound. Bonus coverage after the break.
