Brother Printer Lets You Create RFID Tags


Let’s make some mischief on this amnesty Friday, shall we? All we need is this Brother RL-700S printer that prints out passive RFID tags and we’re golden. Well, more accurately, it uses rolls of tape that contain the proper IC chips, complete with working antenna, which can be programmed with the corresponding data. I’m sure the black hats out there can figure out how to get this printer to generate Mobile Speedpass chips, Lexington Ave NYC subway chips, etc. Or, plainly, use it for crimes that result in long federal prison stays. Sounds good to me. Though the fact that the printer costs some $1,200 and the tape rolls cost $80 a piece somewhat throws a wrench in my plans.
