The Life Pod contains an RFID chip and is either great or spooky, depending on your perspective. Pass a display with an RFID reader and the phone downloads information from the kiosk and uploads it to a personal blog. The phone also posts information about time, date, location and more. Conceivably, if enough RFID readers exist, people could track daily movements for entertainment. Life Pod is still in the experimental phase. Fujitsu, NEC and government agencies are currently participating with KDDI on the project.
