Portable RFID killer developed

A German group has developed what appears to be the first of its kind: a portable RFID chip zapper that will not damage the article on which the chip is attached. Most methods currently known are microwaving or physically damaging the chip. This method uses a modified disposable camera to deliver a pulse of electromagnetic radiation that likely blows the unit's capacitor. I don't have any expertise to say it will work, but they say it does. See: RFID-Zapper(EN) - 22C3. (Via RFID Gazette.)
