RFID and ePassport detection

Relevant to other discussions and presentations we’ve had at MRL, here is a video on ePassport detection by flexilis, the same people who brough you the bluetooth sniper rifle. They found that despite the internal shielding that the new ePassports could be read even when open only a fraction of an inch (like it could be when bouncing around in a purse). In the video they have a video of a dummy being dragged past a trash-can rigged with a RFID reader which triggers a mock explosion.
