Embedding an RFID tag into a phone: not so simple

Embedding an RFID tag into a phone: not so simple

Inspired by this site I decided to have one of my rfid tag embedded into my iphone 4s, as to use is a master key on my future developments.

I started dissolving the tag with acetone, and while dissolving I started to read some documents on RFID antennas (link) great document, covers from the basics!

Let me tell you a couple of things about embeding

1) I dissolved 2 tags.... first one, stopped working.

2) The one I dissolved does not fit, and cant tear it apart. So, I'm not so happy, though this was going to be easy.

Will keep update on the progress or abandonment of this project (quoting Murphy: If at first you don't succeed destroy all evidence that you ever tried. )
