RFID Zapper

As the title implies, some hobbyist has come up with what it takes for a paranoid person to obliterate any RFID tags that might be on consumer merchandise, or where not expected or wanted.

I imagine that there will be a consumer market for this. People who want one but do not have the personal what it takes to build stuff in their garage with assurance the contraption works right, and that they not injure themselves before getting it completed. Call this a niche industry that will attract a lot of imitators. To be profitable it needs mass production like on a circuit board assembly line. The Risks Digest Volume 24: Issue 26
