If you're one of those people that always loses your keys, this is perfect for you

Pliant announced on Thursday that it will be implementing the IBM radio frequency identification tracking software (RFID) platform into all of it's packaging products.  Additionally, Honda Italia has also made to decision to use the chip on all its motorcycle parts in the warehouse.

CNET reports that Honda Italia plans on installing RFID chips and using the IBM software on all its motorcycle parts and tools to track them within the manufacturing plant.  With scooter sales reaching 12.1 million last year, this tracking system will allow for efficiency in production.

Packaging manufacturer, Pliant, plans on selling plastic wrap embedded with RFID to consumer-goods companies who want to keep track of their products during shipment from the warehouse to the retailers.  Allowing companies to track their shipments helps them know if their products are being tampered with before they hit shelves.

Many companies, such as Boeing, have already taken to the RFID chips to help streamline their businesses by improving accountability of tools, equipment, and other valuable assets.  The chip is also used on U.S. passports and discs to try to stop piracy.
