We seem to be moving to this by default. I was trained to remove my 
identity card when leaving the workplace for security reasons. But 
everyone else seems to wear their identity card at lunchtime at the 
mall. A high resolution camera would be able to read these and track everyone.

Perhaps APEC will issue new Business Travel Cards with RFID chips in
