CYNTAG



So, I was looking on the web, trying to find out why these were glued to the walls all over our building. I quickly found the CYNTAG website. It's an RFID tag. I'm guessing that maintenance is using them (rather than typing in locations for work orders, they'd scan the RFID - except, there don't seem to be enough to make it practical). Or maybe the cleaning crew has to scan all the tags every week to prove they've cleaned the entire building, or at least visited it. Whatever. The really neat thing is the item at right: It's an RFID nail that can be hammered into a tree or other wood. That's so cool! I want to buy a bunch, load them up with... hmmm, probably single words would be the max, (maybe "unshackle" or "disobey" would be good) and start hammering them into things as a sort of hidden art project. I'll bet that someone could get a grant for it, if they had some sort of fancy art degree. Anyway, I'm too lazy, too cheap, and too busy to actually do it. So I offer it up to the world, along with Cheetoh gloves and Funerary diamonds. Have at it.
