EMP? Could be tuned, even, since the RFID is resonant at a known frequency. There's a standard for excitation field strength, so all one should need to do would be hit the chip with 50-100x the expected input. Unless the system is shunted with a zener or some such, you should be able to fry it pretty easily. Now put that chip-cooker in a trash can right by the main entrance to an airport and perform some public service. -- Roy M.
