    They already do an inventory after you leave and charge your card if you take anything. Sounds like some privacy invasion company trying to sell a new product to a legit user.

    Probably. I don't see it as cost effective either.

    Maybe its just the type of motels & hotels I stay at, but I've never wanted to take anything aside from soap & shampoo from a room

    What a shitty article. Doesn't really sound like they're doing it for Big Brother reasons or to cut down on guests stealing linens, but more as an inventory control system used by the maids and other staff.

    Having a range of just 6 feet would make it totally impractical to keep track of guests who use towels in a different part of their hotel room, not to mention installing thousands of individual tracking stations in every room in a large hotel.

    And I'd venture to say a lot of the "loss" that comes from the whole operation is just lazy employees simply throwing used towels in the trash. Saw it first hand working for large hotel/casinos in Vegas.

    The RFID chip doesn't tell you where the linen IS located, it tells you where the linen IS NOT located.

    Like it's a fucking little GPS unit that can lead the globalist towel police right to your door. :icon_roll

    Fuck clueless, fearmongering reporters. Fuck them all.
