@Crusty Would make a good Maker project?

Maybe a combination tag sniffer and zapper. First it detects the tag then zaps it

With the proper equipment, maybe you could re-program them although I think the cheap ones are hard coded...

@Crusty: There is a certain level of dress a gentleman should subscribe to at all times...

If it involves wearing a dog collar (or a suit, for that matter), then I'm glad I'm not a gentleman LOL

When it does not hurt the item it is on then putting it in the microwave for 5 seconds seems to do it.

I am working on an antenna and motor car ignition coil to see if I can get enough field to kill them?

Others suggest hit them with a hammer, if you can see where they are?

@Crusty: Yes I am an old reactionry. I do not trust my clothes now until I give them a vicious bolt of EMP to burnt out the tags.

Just so long as you don't decide to go Au Natural :-)

@Crusty: I dont use the dog lead for dog type things...

Don't tell me that Mrs Crusty makes you wear a dog lead when she takes you out for a walk... Oh, the humanity!

Crusty, haven't thought of that possibility, but it does make sense.


How do you generate the EMP ?

@alex_m1: I blast all items that have a radio tag when bought, even if the shop appears to do so. I am paranoid, it goes with my dual personality of Crusty.

I just hate to give away my shopping habits for free.

It's bad enough with electronic shopping and all the exciting offers they think I will like because I bought a dog lead last week, I dont use the dog lead for dog type things, Max may like to comment on that?

I expect some day now the shop doorway will say out loud to people "Oh I say is that last years coat, it sure is wearing well, but what a shame it's not in this years shade and shape."

If the tags do not show up anymore, then the shops will have to think I have been shopping else, or at the second hand shonky shop and possibly make me a better offer to shop with them?

Crusty1: they have EMP detectors, so no you're tagged as "person of intrest" :)


But sure ,all this could go very bad very fast.

I recon the best way forward is a new city designed for these critters.

Lets call it Google City. This is the place to live? You wake up in your Google aware bed, leave for work in your Google transport machine, which of course anticipates your need for travel because your Google house has told the Google City of your need to go to the Google work centre. Have a wonderful Google day and return to your Google house for yet another Google sleep night.

Yes I am an old reactionry. I do not trust my clothes now until I give them a vicious bolt of EMP to burnt out the tags.
