Jeans Using RFID Technology

What if those new jeans you've just bought start tweeting about your location as you cross Delhi or Other states?
It sounds far-fetched, but it's possible - if one of your garments is equipped with a tiny radio-frequency identification device (RFID), your location could be revealed without you knowing about it.

RFIDs are chips that use radio waves to send data to a reader - which in turn can be connected to the web.

This technology is just one of the current ways of allowing physical objects to go online and share your location about you on social networks. This is when not only your PC, tablet and Smartphone can connect to the web, but also your car, your home, your baseball cap and even the sheep and cows on a farm. And as we switch from IPv4 towards IPv6, which will support some 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses, more and more objects will jump into the web.

Smart buildings and intelligent cars with assigned IP addresses are already making cities smarter - and soon enough, the entire planet may follow.

There are also other such products like talking shirts, chatting cars etc, which uses RFID technology. Now a day’s even cars are becoming smart I have heard about talking cars that will run on roads with WiFi facilities and can tell the driver about the others on road and even about the distance of other cars from its. Toyota, for instance, has always been one of the frontrunners in telematics - and now it has decided to team up with to allow cars to chat to their drivers on a private social network.

So day by day such technologies are progressing- as I talked about charging a mobile with your T-shirts in my previous posts… Now a day’s social networking is best option for promoting anything on net,even these jeans with RFID chips are tweeting about the location, but it is good to see that these can be useful for finding our friends location without using a friend locator  in mobiles. So we can be connected with our loved ones at any time.
