March 17, 2005—Ever since RSA Security announced it had patented an RFID tag “killing” process, we knew a product such as the TagZapper! was right around the corner. It is nothing more than a simple handheld device that deactivates any RFID tags you might be carrying on your person. According to the website, it is “intended to fulfill consumer demand for a means to protect their privacy.” The product is apparently not yet available, and the site provides no indication of when it will be released. For the truly impatient, management@tagzapper.com is provided as a contact.

“TagZapper, for the Katherine Albrecht in all of us.”
