RFID gets sexy (sort of)

Apparently, 200 RFID condom vending machines were installed in Shanghai last November. As part of the activities related to AIDS Awareness Week, 10,000 RFID cards were distributed to citizens, which can be used to get free condoms from the vending machines.

9.11% Shanghai citizens used condoms in 1995 and the number is expected to increase to 19.5% in 2005. These numbers are much higher than the Chinese average use rate of 5.3%.
