Grow a Beard

Everyone know already that 500 million Gillette razors know where they are? That's RFID technology, it's real little, uses power from the air, and can be tracked most places on the populated earth. Inventory control, you know. Inventory control.

Razors that know where they are, and people who know where those razors are. And cameras that know when those razors pass by. And data correlating that particular razor to this specific purchase. With a specific credit card.

Says a PDF explanation summary, Savant platform can be used for: 1) Reading data from different types of readers, 2) Taking pictures upon triggered 3) Filter data to smooth the read signal and 4) Log data/events to various devices. Did I mention that Prada already has these in use in their store?

Just saying: Grow a mustache. Grow a beard.

I am rooting for Mr. Abdul Kadir (above) in his beardquest.
