Neil has been working on a new RFID system and has been showing Jon and Justin how to use it. We already have Arthur’s amazing door system, so this will add to what can be controlled by RFIDs in the space. The price of RFID technology has come down significantly, so we will start with having an RFID reader on the laser cutter, to monitor usage and might add them to more tools, if we can get it to work.

Not for the squeamish but this photo shows Jon testing his RFID chip that is embedded in his hand. Justin also has one in his hand other people have them on order. The rest of us will continue using our normal RFID key fobs.
