Project: RFID Pocket Replacement Date: October 2005
RFID privacy issues have become a hot topic. As RFID tags become
more pervasive, how does the consumer avoid being tracked? One
easy way to subvert the technology is to build a homemade faraday
cage around your RFID tags. The below project describes how the
average person can rip out a pocket from a pair of jeans and
replace it with a cotton like fabric which contains enough
conductive material to block most RFID tag frequencies.
This project was created as a workshop for a DIY event Swap-O-Rama-Rama
which takes place in NYC on Sunday, February 12th 2006.
