Precision Dynamics’ Microchip Wristband

In the Los Angeles Times, Hugo Martín writes about Precision Dynamics’ microchip wristband, which has uses at places like the Disney resorts.

The wristbands use the same technology as electronic tollbooths, security key cards and the newest U.S. passports. But at Precision Dynamics, this sophisticated electronic know-how has found its niche at theme parks, where the high-tech wristbands act as high-security admission passes, cashless debit cards, hotel room keys and a form of identification to reunite lost children with parents.

Check out the story, which includes a quote from a privacy watchdog.
